5 Everyday Tips Video: Save Money and Go Green

IGORoamandreport’s debut for envisionGood.tv

I must be one lucky guy.  Then again, as the great Bret Michaels once uttered, “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”  Make no mistake, Bret – yes, I am talking about Bret Michaels – is a winner.  He is a world famous musician, Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice, and conqueror of many personal battles.   The point is, no matter who or where you are in life, no matter what you do and what you inspire to do, stay focused and stay positive.  Remember to work hard and you will be rewarded.

I was recently appointed as media producer for an up-and-coming social media website, envisionGood.tv.  envisionGood strives to promote and inspire positive social innovation through journalism, media, and online networking.  I am very excited about this opportunity, and I am eager to further promote conservation, sustainability, and green technology through this new outlet.  Thank you and enjoy my first production!
