In 2015, I set out to make starting a nonprofit just a little bit easier by publishing Starting Your Nonprofit: a workbook to guide you through a million exciting tasks.
Over the following two years, I received wonderful and insightful feedback from those who had either used the book as a guide to start their nonprofits and or had already started a nonprofit.
Starting Your Nonprofit: CALIFORNIA (2017)
This second book is a very concise adaptation of the original 200-page workbook, laser focused on eleven steps to start a nonprofit in California. This book has been out just a little over one year, and again, I’ve been receiving some helpful feedback.
Many future nonprofit founders are busy – with kids, at their full time job, driving, life, etc. So, why not make Starting Your Nonprofit: CALIFORNIA available as an audiobook?
My internal dialog went a little something like this:
- an audio book??
- I’ve never recorded an audiobook. I have NO idea how to do that.
- Wait. But I do have Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio. I supposed if we’ve been able to record and produce music albums, an audiobook can’t be any harder.
- Um. Okay. I’ll do it.
- Wait. What am I doing? Where do I start? Google. Always start with Google.
- Okay! I’m in! Let’s do it!
And with that, I’m pleased to announced the audiobook version of Starting Your Nonprofit: CALIFORNIA will be coming out soon!
We haven’t made any final decisions on which platforms to release it on (iTunes? Google Play Store? Amazon mp3? Audible?), so if you have any comments or suggestions, please let me know.
In the meantime, please continue to utilize all of the free resources on the books page.
Thanks again for all of your support throughout this nonprofit journey. The books, the events, the speaking engagements, they’ve all been a result of our nonprofit community rallying together to help each other out. My hope for this this new audiobook is to get it into even more future nonprofit founders hands and help them get their organizations and and running. Because, in the end, doing good should be easy.
Until next time…
