Seth Godin on Why It's Bad to Run Your Nonprofit Like a Business

Watch this.  It will only take 4 minutes out of your day.
  • Are you in business to feed an institution or solve a real problem?
  • Do you have opportunities to innovate and thus, sometimes fail miserably at work?
  • Are you ready and willing to go out of business once your issue is solved?
  • Do you often collaborate with other nonprofits because doing so is the best way to achieve a shared vision?
Interesting food for thought.

Cheers!

I loved this post. And I think that Seth Godin's point is valid, that we need to help nonprofits fail better, and fail faster, and give the employee of the month spot to someone who had the courage to fail.

I think that a LOT of industries do not value the person who takes a risk and fails. In fact, I think that emulating a LEAN company like Toyota, which PRIZES failure, would be much much better than just telling nonprofits not to act like corporations. I don't know a single nonprofit that prizes failure. Do you?

I do not agree with Seth's point of view. I have worked in non profit finance for over 20 years and the main problem is the lack of business managment and planning amongst its leadership. You should be running your non-profit like a business as you have a greater responsibility when you have tax payers dollars and goverment funds to account for. Waste is rampid and needs to be better accounted for and managed. A company like Toyota is ran on private funds and are only accountable to the share holders, not the tax payers.

Hello, everyone! I,m here to explore blogs and forum about the wonderful and most safe cure for HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV).
I was positive to the deadly virus called HERPES and i lost hope because i was out casted and rejected even by my closet friends.
i searched on-line to know and enquirer about cure for HERPES and i read someone testimony on how he was cured from HSV-2 so i decided to contact the same herbalist because i know that nature has the power to heal everything.
i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will hel me with the natural herbs from God!
after 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via DHL and it got to me after 3 days!
i used the med as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured!
its really like a dream but i am so happy!
thats the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more can be saved just like me!
and if you need his help, you can email him on traditionalherbalhealingcentre@gmail.com or whatsapp +2348110857969
I,m neme amber and you can get intouch with me via nemeamber@gmail.com.....

I want to appreciate Dr Agbaka for using his herbal medicine to cure my family from herpes virus, since 3 years, my family have been having this herpes disease and it has been giving my family challenges,we were so perplexed cause my family have taken several drugs to be cured but every of our effort was in vain,one morning i was browsing through the internet then i saw several testimonies about Dr Agbaka curing people of their herpes disease and immediately i contacted Dr Agbaka on his email: {agbakaherbalhome@gmail.com}, told him about my family troubles and he told me that my family must be cured, so he prepared a herbal medicine for my family which we used for 2 weeks and everything was like a dream for my family, right now, my family herpes disease was totally gone,why don't you contact him today and be free from your disease... His email is, AGBAKAHERBALHOME@GMAIL.COM or call him on Mobile +2348143502763

I was haven herpes 2 on my private part. I have had them for about 2 and a bit years. I am so scared what my mates are going to says if there should fined out i have herpes on my private part and due to the virus my girlfriend broke up with me. I have been to the Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all come back. I have been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (You freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can't seem to treat the larger ones. They don't get any bigger, but then they can't shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. I am only a teenager and I hate it most when it get pi-chins me to scratch it, it get sweets when scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so bad! DR.OBA website has been a huge help and has helped me realize a lot more about me and my family of genital herpes! so that was when i switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy, i search and i saw a great posts by Sarah devise adebayo ehijactor and shanttel Merritt on about the great herbal doctor that get them rid of there disease infection. and this great herbal doctor was called DR.OBA so that was when i contacted him for my own treatment and he prepared me some herbs which i takes for some couples of days, and i take it as he says before i am to no me and my family was perfectly cure for it and never experience it again. please friends if you have herpes virus and you really wants to get rid of it, please contact this great DR.OBA for herbal treatment and you will get rid of it. EMAIL. drobaspellhome902@gmail.com
