ECOpreneuring is a fresh and dynamic approach to entrepreneurial thinking, blending passion for the planet with small business pragmatics and smashing the stereotype that "doing good" and "running a business" can't go hand in hand.
Part small business manifesto, part personal finance primer, ECOpreneuring is essential reading for small business owners, prospective entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs starting non-profit organizations and anyone who dreams of a livelihood based on independence, creativity, passion and a commitment to green practices and sustainability.
Library Journal's (Feb. 1, 2009) top "Green Business": The Green Capitalist book list by Robert Eagan features ECOpreneuring and concludes that "Ivanko and Kivirist -- innkeepers, authors, and wearers of many other hats -- truly walk the green talk, detailing the nitty-gritty of running a green business."
