Summary
Lessons for Nonprofit and Start-Up Leaders: Tales from a Reluctant CEO uses the experiences of a real company, Community Connections, to bring to life the practical dilemmas that an organization founded on a mission and guided by a set of ideals must confront and solve if it is to thrive. With no business or financial background, Maxine Harris and her partner, Helen Bergman, grew a tiny startup into a business worth $35 million. Harris shares her insights, struggles, and mistakes with the goal of helping others who may be starting and running nonprofit organizations
