Starting a nonprofit can feel like a rollercoaster ride, and stepping into any role at a nonprofit can feel daunting. You have a purpose in your heart but all the paperwork and tracking feels like it stands in the way of your mission. You just want to help the babies, but people keep asking for more information, more documentation, more answers to why they should give you money.
Now, you're starting to doubt if you can even take on this type of endeavor. You're scared you're going to make a mistake and be called a fraud, loser or be denied funding, lose exempt status, and hurt those you are trying to help. You feel ill-equipped to manage the money and nervous to completely give control to someone else. You're worried you'll hire the wrong people and they won't get all the little things you need to make sure your financial data is solid. That's why we want to help.

3 key differences between a nonprofit and for-profit business, what 3 steps not to forget after you incorporate; and why getting your financial house in order is vital to reflecting the impact that secures funding.
