A starting point for launching your own green biz

This audiobook contains more than a dozen green ideas (17) and the necessary steps to launching your own green business. We need more green entrepreneurs. As a real estate agent, I know that buyers are looking for green homes with energy efficient features. The market will only get bigger as more people become aware that we're all on this tiny blue marble together and if not us, who? I drive an EV car, not your typical real estate agent car. And the bumper sticker reads, "Unless you're from another planet, every day is EARTH DAY." Foluke Michael is reminding us that there's nothing wrong with making money from doing good things.

Great ideas! Why aren't we doing this yet?

Really, why aren't we implementing some of those ideas? Why did it take a dangerous virus to wake up? Why do we need to work in offices and not remotely? I really encourage you to consider those ideas and implement them.

Inspirational!

If you have always wanted to start your own business, and you love environmental sustainability movements, why not combine the two. I'm sure the ideas she presents in this book are just the tip of the iceberg, but it does get the gears turning and is changing the way I look at what possible areas of business can be profitable, but still have an impact on keeping the world we live in around for the next generation. I am definitely going to join the green entrepreneurs' Facebook community she mentions because I think the ideas presented here are just the beginning. I would love to see what is being passed around in there. Overall a great short but informative listen that was well worth my time and money.

I love this book..

Being an entrepreneur myself, this book rings true for me. I think we all have a responsibility to protect the planet. The ideas in this well narrated audiobook are first class and make a lot of sense. We need to protect the planet, and as entrepreneurs, we need to be more responsible as the planet won't heal itself. Thank you for this amazing book.

A gem for moral minded entrepreneurs!

Well this book was refreshing. Modern business can be pretty dog eat dog, which is partly why we find ourselves so worried about the environment in the first place. This book is a wealth of green ideas to start up a new business. But beyond the 17 start up ideas this book goes above and beyond, sets the scene and inspires YOU to deliver the change you're looking for all whilst earning an honest living. Brilliant!

Great way to kickstart your business

This book is like a shot in the arm or a quick dose of entrepreneurial wisdom. In just under an hour, the author presents a number of useful ideas for starting a green business. The part about finding a market in need was the most effective for me. There are also handy tips for those already in business to channel their company into making less of an environmental impact.

Impactful!

A very impactful book indeed! As we become more and more aware of the effects of our every day decisions, we have to be innovative in our how we approach our businesses. Businesses today cannot simply thrive on a desire for financial success, but rather there is a necessity for solution-driven businesses as we consider our environment and the issues at hand. The urgency in how we treat our environment opens up many opportunities for entrepreneurs and this book does a phenomenal job in creating potential business ideas. Great book to get started thinking about future green businesses!

Great sustainable business ideas

Although many of us are already making changes in our daily lives to reduce waste and be more sustainable, it's about time we started thinking about sustainable options for our businesses as well!
This audiobook outlines some really great ideas. It also just made me think about how to make my business less of a burden for the planet.
I watched a few documentaries and boy, we really are so blind sometimes to what we are doing to the environment! As they say, we should realize there's no planet b.
Great audiobook and prompts you to think!

The Green Entrepreneurs: a must-read!

I feel elated to have listened to this insightful audio book on The Green Entrepreneurs. It conveys the essence of the sustainable Development Goals. It highlights the negligence that leads to climate crises and how the Solution17 green businesses will spur solutions to people's problems, while generating income simultaneously. Beyond any reasonable doubt, the Author has done a great work by exemplifying some cogent lessons from the Covid-19 pandemic and the way forward out of the present environmental holocaust ravaging the planet.
Also, the book could serve as a manual for governments of different countries, organizations and enterprises. It is a detailed compendium of the green solution to save our planet. One could easily decipher the work that has gone into analysing the step by step process for one to achieve a substantial business idea, find the trademarks to implement the idea and identify the strategy to execute the plans for a safe environment.
Indeed, we can definitely protect our planet to avoid environmental pollution, emission of green house gases, health crisis and climate pollution; by adapting to plant based diet, protecting biodiversity, reducing green house gas emissions and being intentional about every mobility. In the words of the Author: 'People don't purchase your products, they purchase solutions to their problems'. In lieu of this vital piece of information, every green business must be premised on solving a problem before being profit oriented. A problem solved will naturally generate revenue and it is a topical issue for every green entrepreneur to comprehend.
On the journey to insignificantly reduce climate pollution, everyone must take responsibility by reducing plastic waste, paper, burning of fossil fuel and other things that could endanger the planet. Climate crisis is everyone's problem and advocacy must begin now through different channels and mediums. 'The Green Entrepreneurs' is a must read.

Some great ideas

It's always a challenge to come up with interesting ideas for a new entrepreneurial project, but this audio offers many for consideration. But more importantly, it doesn't end with the 17 ideas in the book, but it's really a blueprint for how to think about new Green markets and where an unmet need might exist.
