It’s not all bad out there. Here’s the latest installment of a weekly web feature that highlights positive developments in the Northeast Ohio business community.

Western Reserve Public Media is launching a program called “Micro Business for Teens: Starting a Micro Business,” that will air on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 8 p.m and 10 p.m. on Western Reserve PBS (WNEO 45.1/WEAO 49.1).Carol Topp, a Cincinnati-based certified public accountant, hosts the 90-minute program, which is based on her “Micro Business for Teens” book series.

The program recently was taped at Kent State University with a live studio audience of students, parents and educators from throughout Northeast Ohio. Students from Gilmour Academy, Firestone High School, Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent and Stow-Munroe Falls High School participated in a Q-and-A session with Ms. Topp.

Western Reserve Media said the program “makes the very notion of creating a micro business an achievable goal for those who have a good idea and the enthusiasm to design and implement a plan of action. It discusses what a micro business is, gives examples of businesses suitable for teenagers, offers instruction on writing a business plan and financing the business and more.”

The program will be released nationally to PBS affiliates this spring.
