To Be of Use

Jan 10, 2006-- As a pioneer in the sustainable business movement -- assistant to Cesar Chavez, founder of Briarpatch Natural Food, Smith & Hawken, Organic Boquet (first organic floral company), and Organic To go -- Dave Smith is on a mission to inspire people everywhere to reconcile compassionate values with capitalism. In his book, "To Be of Use", he shares stories of how business can be a force for radical change and paints a picture of how those driven by simple core values -- faith, hopes, justice, temperance, courage, prudence and love -- can not only create a positive workplace but ultimately, make the world a better place.
