Totally different, thanks! Friends and I want to start a nonprofit & I'll be CFO. so it'll be a good break from consulting. Super different

Congrats! Are you thinking of doing someone consulting related or totally different?

What are you starting with for a template?

P1, haven't gotten that far yet. I'm still gathering data and doing some research. Have any recommendations?

Why non profit?

Our purpose isn't exactly a profit generating one. We're creating a service to assist others in a time of crisis; charging for that takes a specific angle we're not trying to hunt for it right now. Maybe down the line...

How old are you OP / how many years of experience do you have? I want to do the same but I've only been in the game for two years now so it's a little early for me
