Getting up in front of people has never been a weakness for me. Talking in front of strangers wasn't hard either. I don't care if I know them or not, public speaking was easy for me.

When I was younger, my friends would like to use me to encourage others to "get the party started" at times. In a very appropriate and mature way--for those that thought otherwise, I'm ashamed of you (lol)--I began to make people laugh, enjoy one another, move from out of their spot and have fun. Or from a business perspective, I was able to help others market themselves to get the results they wanted.

All businesses need to know how to market themselves. Nike kills it with their motto, "Just Do It." In this podcast episode of Social Entrepreneur with Nathan A Webster our guest is Chris Bullock. He's the President of I Am Business Marketing, a marketing firm in Vancouver, WA helping small to medium size businesses grow. This episode is all about marketing yourself and your organization.

For social entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs alike, one of the biggest questions is how do I market myself? In this world of digital technology, it’s important to create a clear and consistent brand to market yourself. You can create your consistent brand through blogging, creating relevant infographics and making videos for your target audience.

The core four tips Bullock gave of marketing yourself, was the following:

  1. Create a first signal opportunity for yourself;
  2. Use technological resources to capitalize on running your business more effective and efficiently;
  3. Create a disruption to get others to notice;
  4. Be transparent to get those results.

No one likes to fail. Failing is a derogatory word. It's rarely used in a positive perspective. For example, have you heard of "failing forward?" If this term is foreign to you, do be alarmed. Fail forward doesn't make a lot of sense to most people. Majority of people aren't looking to take any gambles or risks, so this isn't a needed mantra. However, in the entrepreneurial world- it's an everyday reality. 

To be an entrepreneur is risking the "comfortable security" of employment. Employment has risks too; but not at the same level. Unless the employer tells you that we may go under unless you do this impossible task of _____, this is a huge risk for the company. Now the responsibility is on you, and you have to take a risk. Will you decide to fail forward or fail and go away?

This was a long overdue podcast, and my apologies. I owe you another apology for my under-the-weather sounding voice. But you know how I roll, the show must go on- especially when it comes to starting a nonprofit.

Starting a nonprofit was one of best decisions in my life. It has been rewarding, fun and hard. Never a dull moment. Thanks to one great board member and lawyer that helped us earn our 501c3, his services may be considered a luxury nowadays, possibly even obsolete.

It's never been so easier to start a nonprofit. The IRS has the application online, and there's all sorts of help to get if you find yourself in trouble. I even decided to write an Amazon eBook and blogs to make the process a bit easier. If you prefer videos, I created YouTube videos to help those looking for 'a face to a name' type of assistance. As I teach Nonprofit 101 to people from all different backgrounds, I realize our resources are not as prominent and on the forefront as they should be.

As promised, here are the 10 steps:
1. Research
2. Partner or Create
3. Know Your Role
4. Begin Writing
5. Start Library
6. Find Professional Supporters
7. Begin Filing Paperwork
8. Packaging Infrastructure
9. Set Up
10. Strategize

Too many times do I get the crazy look when I explain nonprofits are businesses too. Why is it so complicated to understand nonprofits are businesses? Personally, I believe it's because no one teaches this in basic K-12 education. Professionally, I don't believe society understand the true value contributes to our economy, community and well-being as humans. Then I get that one-liner, "Nonprofits don't make a profit [ha-ha-ha]!" Ummmmmm, no. Nonprofits do make a profit.

One of my first "deer in the headlights" learnings was the 'School to Prison Pipeline' during a networking event. This professional mentioned it briefly assuming I knew all about it because I worked with schools. As I continued to nod my head, I was completely clueless about these issues.
