The world is in an interesting state, to say the least, and it is up to entrepreneurs and smart business plans to instil some much-needed positivity.
We are living in uncertain times wherever we are in the world. The United States arguably has its most controversial president in Donald Trump and the United Kingdom is in the process of leaving the EU. On top of this, there appears to be something of a right-wing uprising in global politics.
Businesses are either threatening to leave, or threatened to stay, depending on which side of the coin you are.

Global warming seems to be one of the most debated issues of modern civilization; everyone has a strong opinion about it one way or the other.

Open Letter to the Honorable Premier of Western Australia, Mr. Colin Barnett:
