Conscious Business

More and more we are hearing about socially responsible investing and ecologically responsible investing and ecologically responsible business. The wholistic approach to industry and commerce now puts more than the customer or the stockholder first: happy employees make happy customers and improves the bottom line. A new appreciation for the impact a business has on the planet and all of nature is combined with a team approach to improved relationships between customer, employee, management and investor.

All meetings cover real estate and small business issues. Presentation and breakfast is $8.00 for guests and visitors, coffee $3.00, free parking.
