Putting the Profit back in Not-For-Profit (or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Start Using Money As A Tool)
Let's glean the best practices of "for profit" business models to help ensure a reliable cash flow for our Alternative Bike Shops (Non-profit, Charity, Collectively run, Worker owned, etc).
In this workshop I hope to share some of my almost 20 years experience in both the "non-profit" and "for-profit" bike Bike shop models and discuss what works and what doesn't work very well in regards to making an Alternative Bike Shop more financially successful.
We will discuss goals, planning, strategy, and business financial basics and how to apply whats best for our own type of Alternative Bike Shop
The workshop will start off with me sharing what I know about the above topic, followed by a round table discussion so that others can briefly share what they found has worked or not worked in regards to financial stability at their own Alternative Bike shop
