Start a Non-Profit

Starting a nonprofit can be very rewarding but very complex as well. As an administrator you have to start thinking about choosing a board of directors, marketing your organization, developing a strategic plan, hiring employees, training volunteers, and much more.

This creates a set of challenges that make it difficult for the nonprofit administrator to focus on services and sustainability. This also explains why so many nonprofit administrators cannot pay themselves until after a year and why many feel burnout or quit.  The good news is you’ve made the best move of this process. To learn all you can about the non-profit process before getting started.  In this workshop you will learn the road map to get off to a great start in the right direction.  Review below the answers that will be covered in detail and allotted time for specific questions to be answer in regards to your organizations needs.
