The book is Very practical and filled with visuals like and colors well-written magazine. I can’t believe how many examples this book has of people successfully running purpose-filled businesses that stand for something, support a cause proudly and loudly and is also quite profitable. Money doesn’t have to come from the “dog-eat-dog” mentality.

1 Con?
