EXPLORING THE OPTIONS: Following a series of varying financial education seminars, author, educator and activist Jessica Gordon Nembhard will deliver the keynote speech on cooperative economics at this year's Bringing It Home conference.

Bringing It Home conference encourages community business ownership

If you want to bring home the bacon, first, you’ll need to bring home the tools to succeed, say the organizers of the Bringing It Home conference. And that applies to all of us, whether you’re trying to dig your way out of personal debt or start a million-dollar business. Accordingly, this year’s conference is broadly aimed at all of us, particularly those who sometimes feel left out of the standard entrepreneurial model.
