The Myth of Microfinance: What I've learned so far in the field

From my blog, Wall Street Refugee at http://wallstreetrefugee.wordpress.com



A little more than a month ago, I officially resigned from J.P. Morgan to pursue my personal interest in microfinance. I left New York City for an unknown place called Nyendo, Uganda where I will be living until the end of August.

Seven special steps to successful collaboration

A few times in my life I have felt let down by what I perceived was betrayal by others of perceived agreements to do certain things.



The last time this happened I allowed myself to feel hurt for many months. The positive consequence was that I developed a process for reaching agreement with others. I trust you will find it valuable in making your collaborations successful.



There are three worlds. The one in here - that’s my world; the one out there - that’s your… Continue

The news media caters to constituencies and ratings with only passing regard for educating the viewing public. If we are to have an economic climate that is healthy for the growth of business, should business be stepping into the void to provide intelligent discussion upon which voters and consumers can make informed decisions?

Cheap Green Certifications

At some point, the decision is made to "Go Green" in your business.

The next question is "How do we do it?" Ideas are floated around, and

Green business certification. Suddenly, the web surfer finds dozens of

websites offering Green certifications for anywhere from $300 to

$1500. The next step is to investigate each one to see which one

Some websites…
