My New Book

I’ve been working for some time now on a book about growing your business, and I want to share an update now that we have some details nailed down.

It’s called Organic to the Core: Launch Your Business with 6 Principles of Organic Certification, and I’m currently working with a team of experts to find the best publisher for the book.

It’s inspiring to see so much passion these days for dealing with climate change, and to know that the world has set some ambitious goals for solving it. What we need now are practical plans to reach those goals.

In my book, I’ll share what I’ve learned from more than two decades of working with businesses who have implemented organic certification with their customers, and seeing how they have grown as a result. I hope to explain the methods in a clear and compelling way. I’ll also propose a plan for what you need to do to build the tools that will help us. And I’ll suggest some concrete steps that companies can take to make it happen.

I’m excited about the book and eager to continue the conversation about how we can grow your business organically.
