To celebrate the upcoming UN Climate Action Summit this September, I want help my company set goals to become carbon neutral, or carbon negative over time. I've searched the internet and obviously found tons of options/professional offerings, as well as some prior askmefi posts that have covered elements of this question over a decade ago. But are there any great 'do it yourself' guidance papers / websites that've been issued, with the current best practice on emissions reduction and renewable energy switching? [more inside]

Help naming a business to automate tasks for other businesses

I'm looking into starting a small business where I'll help out other businesses by automating repetitive tasks. I've already done this a lot at my current job, using Python, VBA and Excel and have saved my co-workers a lot of time by streamlining tasks. The problem I'm struggling with is coming up with a name for the business. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a business name?

Where can I find business case studies?

I got hooked on reading business case studies (they're like a weird cousin of longform magazine articles -- I just like 'em), and I've run out of my supplies. The Harvard Business Review books don't appear to be case studies, but mostly articles (and I generally don't enjoy HBR articles). I'm happy to pay for them, but buying case studies from HBR one at a time is prohibitively expensive. I've found a few released by consulting firms in the wild, but I would love a stable source of them. Thanks!

Health insurance at small non-profit

My job transitioned from a municipal position with benefits to a small non-profit where they are not required to offer health insurance based on law. At the same time my husband’s position lost funding and he’s looking for a job. I can’t afford to pay health insurance either in the marketplace or temporarily through COBRA for my family if I stay at this job. My family includes three people including a small child and a person with a chronic illness that requires medication, fairly frequent labs and fairly frequent MD appts. Help me persuade my boss that it is worth it to pay at least part of my health insurance. [more inside]

How to decide what opportunities to say no to?

I'm in academia, in a relatively senior position (tenured, associate professor). I already have too many projects on the go. I've bought out all my teaching for the next few years with external funding, so there's no real way to make more space in my timetable beyond that. But I keep being invited to be involved in new projects and opportunities that really excite me and I'm having trouble figuring out when to say no and when I can/should accept. What are helpful rules of thumb for figuring this out? [more inside]
