BOISE, Idaho, Aug. 17 /CSRwire/ - Airport readers will soon be turning the pages of a new book charting a socially responsible revolution in business as Hudson Booksellers has selected Rise Up—How to Build a Socially Conscious Business for a nationwide promotion.
For the month of October, Rise Up—How to Build a Socially Conscious Business by Russ Stoddard will be a featured book on the business table in 80 Hudson Bookseller stores at airports across the country.
“This confirms there is significant interest in a new breed of businesses called social enterprises that create social impact, positive environmental outcomes, and financial profit as well,” said Stoddard.
Rise Up—How to Build a Socially Conscious Business is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and will be released nationwide on September 19, 2017.
