Praise

“Hammel and Denhart free us from two tired myths: that business and social mission don’t mix and that in a Wal-Mart world local enterprise is passé. Plus, the fascinating cases and the practical lessons in Growing Local Value make for great reading.”
—Frances Moore Lappé, author of Democracy’s Edge and Hope’s Edge

“In a world awash in stories of corporate predators, it’s refreshing to read the stories of local independent entrepreneurs with strong social consciences who are building successful businesses that create local value. Hammel and Denhart reveal how they do it. Essential reading for everyone dedicated to building vital local economies and communities that work for everyone.”
—David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World

“Move over Stephen Covey!  The real eighth habit for highly successful people is to be the kind of community-loving entrepreneur depicted by Hammel and Denhart. Anyone running a business, studying business, or dreaming of having a business should study this book and heed its wise yet practical advice.”
— Michael H. Shuman, author of The Small-Mart Revolution
