From the Back Cover
How did 5 Cistercian monks from Wisconsin create a $10 million Internet business?
As miraculous as it sounds, they simply followed the Rule of St. Benedict-a nine hundred-year-old tradition of kindness, hospitality, and charity. By applying these basic Christian principles to the fiercely competitive world of e-commerce, the entrepreneurial brothers have managed to build a surprisingly successful ink, toner and office products company called LaserMonks.com. Their story is a true inspiration, a triumph of marketing, public service, and humanity. These are the new “commandments” of business…
Bring joy and meaning to your work.
Involve the customer in your mission.
Position your company as socially conscious.
Grow financially and spiritually.
The LaserMonks success story proves that giving is good business. That it's possible to combine commerce with compassion. That consumers are willing to purchase with a purpose. And that you, too, can make a difference-and a profit-at the same time. This is what “good work” is all about.
