  1. Justin – would you be willing to list my book “Good Morning, Beautiful Business” under your recommended reading? Also, do you know about BALLE, the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies? You may want to list them under organizations. http://www.bealocalist.org. And you may want to attend our annual conference in June in Phoenix. You will find lots to write about.
    Keep up the good work. Judy


    • Judy – I’ll need to read your book before putting it up, but it’s on my short list and I’m looking forward to it. Would love to attend the conference but unfortunately it’s not in the family budget this year. Will follow it online and am looking forward to writing about it.

      You keep up the good work too!
