  • You’re in the nonprofit world because you want to make a difference. To do this, you need to do what works and what's right, not what's convenient or easy, and you need to do what's right, right from the start.

    First Things First is an award-winning, bestselling book (now in its 4th edition) for anyone working at a nonprofit (board, staff, executives). It focuses on an essential set of governing principles, operational structures, and practical tactics you must adopt and apply if you’re serious about building a gold standard nonprofit.

    Otherwise, your tireless efforts will turn into costly blunders that will stunt or derail your dreams and momentum of fulfilling a worthy mission.

    It's a book every nonprofit executive and board member wished they would have read years earlier. It has sold tens of thousands of copies for a reason -- it's good! . . . and it will help propel your board, staff, and nonprofit to the next level of performance and impact.
