What is Coming Clean?
Coming clean means shifting our time, our attention, our spending and investing away from the "tapeworm economy" and into a financially intimate economy and a wonderful world. Coming clean is about taking responsibility for raising our "popsicle index" to 100%. Coming clean is a process that helps us gain mastery and take action – individually and together in our families, circles, communities, and networks of trust.

Solari funds the development of freely available materials that members of the Solari Action Network use to put the solari ideas into practice in a manner that strengthens individual and community financial sustainability. These materials dovetail with our Solari Audio Seminars, through which we are building a curriculum and toolkit in support of the above.

We welcome and encourage ideas and initiatives for individuals as well as for local groups to take action together.

From Wall Street to Main Street
What our money touches, we touch. What our money does, we do. And we want to take advantage of the power of that intimacy to do better, both for ourselves and for the world. Financial intimacy is about working through networks of trust which are intimate for all your transactions – spending, investing, financing, donations, learning – based on intimate knowledge and a heartfelt connection. You're using your money to create an intimate world.
     
Who's Your Banker?
Do you still bank at a large bank? Switch to a well-managed local bank–it's often the single greatest point of leverage you have as a consumer!  See our Going Intimate With Your Bank web page of selected links to help you through each step.

    Where's the money in your neighborhood going?
    Do you know how the money works in your place yet? If we want a wonderful economy and a wonderful world, we need to start in our own backyard understanding the money flows and the opportunities to reengineer that flow into flourishing local living economies. See:

         

    Solari Circles
    Consider bringing the above initiatives to your local community, forming a small group of trusted family, friends and neighbors to embark on this together. We are currently developing audio seminars for Solari Circles – action groups focused on exploring what it means to "come clean," "vote with our money" and take action together.

         
    Reinvent Your World

    Step #1
    First free up 2-4 hours per week to invest in your transformation
    Would turning off the TV free up some time? How about cancelling your corporate newspapers or magazines or batching up your errands to cut out 1-2 trips to the store every week?
    Step #2
    Next invest that time to figure out how to start saving $100-200 per month, and/or reducing debt by $100-200 per month
    Step #3
    Now use that newfound time and money to invest in learning more, going intimate, and building real wealth
    Step #4
    Keep learning about coming clean and voting with your money!
