The Nature of Investing reunites investing with the real world through natural principles, transforming the investment process from the roots up. Drawing on Collins’s twenty years of professional investment experience, this course connects real-world finance with the deeply rooted, scientifically valid framework of biomimicry – a different framework than the mechanized one frequently employed throughout the financial industry. The result is an investment approach that goes “beyond sustainability” to form a naturally modeled investment system that is inherently resilient and regenerative.
In this course, participants will discover the connection between nature and investing. Collins provides tools that will help you make more thoughtful and complete investing decisions with their time, energy, and money.

Bibliomotion is a book publishing house designed for the new publishing landscape. While many publishers work to retrofit old processes for new realities, Bibliomotion was founded by book-industry veterans who believe the best approach is a fresh one – one that focuses on empowering authors and serving readers above all else. Moving away from the top-down model that has dominated the publishing process for years, we give each member of the team – including the author – a seat at the table from the very beginning and in doing so, work side-by-side to launch and sell the best content possible, making it available in a variety of forms.
