Continuing the green theme for entrepreneurs, UBR Executive Producer TaQuoya M. Kennedy speaks with Jennifer Kaplan, founder of Greenhance, a company that helps entrepreneurs and small businesses to create strategic sustainable green programs, demystify the going green process and opportunities in this burgeoning sector. Kaplan is also the author of the book Greening Your Small Business.


Also this week on The Urban Business Roundtable, I talk about the steps you should take before investing in a network marketing (also known as multilevel marketing or direct selling) business:

Investigate the company. Find out if it’s a member of an industry association, such as the Direct Selling Association or the Multi-Level Marketing International Association. Organizations like these hold their members to a strong code of ethics and not only prohibit illegal scams but also provide tips and advice on how to spot and avoid them.
