Are you familiar with worker cooperatives? They’re more popular in some areas than others, but many major cities have at least a few examples. And if you’re an REI member then you’re already part of a co-op!

I recently decided to meditate with my tiger’s eye crystal for the first time. After discovering the power of crystal scrying with fluorite, I was curious if working with the tiger’s eye might bring some additional clarity. After I bought it, I found out that it’s known as the entrepreneur’s stone because it supports bravery and bold thinking.
