CCM is a print and digital publication about innovative, sustainable businesses that are doing well by doing good. It is currently distributed nationally through Whole Foods Market, Barnes and Noble, Sprouts and many more.

Thrive Consulting Group utilizes cognitive science, marketing communication and a business framework called conscious capitalism to work with businesses on their operations and future planning.
