An entrepreneur is an entrepreneur no matter what sector they're in.Overall managing a big enterprise in the nonprofit sector, the for-profit sector, and the government sector has a lot of similarities.
One of the biggest challenges in the nonprofit world is understanding how well you’re doing.
In a nonprofit keeping your eye on the prize is a challenge.
The culture of a nonprofit is very much, “We’re all in this together.”
Reach for the fences.
Foundations have no incentive to change.
The amount of money going into structured philanthropy is increasing dramatically.
The distinction between nonprofit organizations and for-profit organizations is going to blur.
What you measure gets managed.
An entrepreneur is an entrepreneur no matter what sector they’re in.
