I attended the virtual Camp Mustache on Sunday, May 24th 2020 where the headline speaker was Vicki Robinson!
Vicki is a prolific social innovator, writer and speaker. She is coauthor with Joe Dominguez of the international best-seller, “Your Money or Your Life: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Achieving Financial Independence.” It was an instant NY Times best seller in 1992 and steadily appeared on the Business Week Best Seller list from 1992-1997. It is available now in eleven languages.
“Blessing the Hands that Feed Us; Lessons from a 10-mile diet” recounts her adventures in hyper-local eating and what she learned about food and farming as well as belonging and hope. Called by the New York Times as the “prophet of consumption downsizers,” Vicki has lectured widely and appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows, including “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “Good
Morning America” and National Public Radio’s “Weekend Edition” and “Morning Edition”; she has also been featured in hundreds of magazines including People Magazine, AARP, The Wall Street Journal, Woman’s Day, Newsweek, Utne Magazine, and the New York Times.
Vicki has helped launch many sustainability initiatives including: The New Road Map Foundation, The Simplicity Forum, The Turning Tide Coalition, Sustainable Seattle, The Center for a New American Dream, Transition Whidbey, Your Money or Your Life Community, Local Food Challenge, Conversation Cafe and more.
Vicki is active in her Whidbey Island. WA community on a range of social and environmental issues: affordable housing, local food, community investing and more. For fun, she is a comedy improv actress, sings in a choir, gardens and nurtures a diverse circle of friends.
