Global Nation One

Global Nation One (GN1) is a site for the recently awakened. The embodiment of the phrase 'think global, act local'. It will be a blog centered around personal development, and societal change in a global context.

If someone is to say 'I'm ready to do something with myself now' but is still not sure of the steps they should take to get started, GN1 should be a perfect place to begin. It will synthesize necessary concepts in a hands-on action-oriented way, and it will feature organizations and resources that a person can use to become a 'global citizen'.

GN1 will make its money from advertising, affiliation with Amazon, Google Adsense and donations. My aim is to generate at least 10k a month by the year 2010, and expand the concept into a new media production company centered around the education and inspiration of a global citizenry.
