If so, I get it. I, too, am a consultant. I’ve been honing my craft for decades, and I’ve loved every minute of it.

So, if you want to grow as a consultant, sign up for Nonprofit Consulting: Get Started, Get Clients, Grow, and Evolve now!

Who can benefit?

New nonprofit consultants, those who are thinking about consulting to nonprofits, consultants who want to learn how to manage, market, and enjoy their consulting practice.

What you will learn?

In this course, you will learn options for structuring your consulting practice, how to choose the services you’ll offer and the markets you will serve, how to market your services, and how to sell yourself and your expertise to clients.

For beginners, I’ll talk about the decision you need to make before getting started. I will guide you through the practical stuff you need to know, like what kind of legal structures are available, what state registration is required for fundraising consultants, and the importance of having a business plan.

No doubt you have plenty of experience and expertise in your field to offer your clients. If you’re like every nonprofit consultant I’ve ever met (me included), your challenge is marketing your services. Over the years, I’ve learned to cast my nets widely, and that has made all the difference. I’ll teach you how to get your name out there, how to choose the right clients, and how to sell yourself and your services to those clients. We’ll even talk about writing and signing the contract with the client.

I’ll help you decide if, when, and how to hire staff, engage independent contractors, or form collaborations or partnerships. I’ll talk about reinventing yourself as your practice grows. I’ll even discuss when it’s time to retire or leave consulting if it isn’t working out.
