Do you want to start your own consultancy serving nonprofits?
Do you have a firm already, but want to grow further and don't know how?
Small But Mighty is the book for you.
Over the past 26 years, I've been fortunate enough to learn a lot about business and the business of consulting. I've worked for non-profits and for-profits and from small organizations to national corporations. I've also started four successful ventures - two for-profits and two non-profits.
Seven years ago I founded Civitas Strategies, a management consultancy dedicated to helping public serving organizations, both non-profit and for-profit, to grow.
Working with aspiring and established consultants serving non-profits, I realized they have incredible skills, ideas, and knowledge to share that could benefit families, children, and communities across the nation and the world.
What they sometimes lack is the business acumen to start and grow a business.
Drawing on my experiences working with consultant entrepreneurs, like you, I have created a step-by-step guide for creating and building your own firm serving non-profits.
In Small But Mighty you'll learn how to:
Build a business that balances your professional and personal life.
Create a MVC – The Minimum Viable Company needed to get your business going and growing.
Find your first client and every one thereafter by creating an ever-green client pipeline.
Know when and how to add employees.
Continue to grow your firm over time.
My hope is that this book will help you move from your vision of service to a profitable, sustainable enterprise.
Start learning now by reading three selections from the book, including how to find your value, build a sales pipeline, and know when to add resources. Also follow our blog - and don't hesitate to email me with questions or comments.
Yours in service,
