Another awesome post from BALLE. A recent panel discussion, facilitated by Brancaccio and featured environmentalist Bill McKibben; Peabody award-winning broadcaster and environmental justice advocate Majora Carter; and social entrepreneur Mike Brady,discussed how micro-businesses can build new livelihoods — and revitalise their local economies — by working with members of their communities.

4. Know that your local business can have a local impact
5. Remember to celebrate teh small victories.
