I had a feeling you guys wouldn’t like me. Believe me I have thought about doing this on my own. It is a good business to get into, and I do respect those who do it.
Our npo will not get any special treatment. I have already done some investigating. We would pay the same fee and same percentage as a commercial business. I don’t think we would have to get licensed, but if we do this we are going to get licensed. I feel that it would make us more legit especially in the vendor community.
I know a lot of npo’s cut corners and do get special treatment, but you would have to sit in a meeting with us to understand that is not what we are about.
Like I said, I don’t want to put someone out of business, or make their family go hungry, or even have someone angry at us. That is why we are going to go through the same stuff that you guys do. That’s why I have spent weeks researching, making calls, reading this forum, getting headaches and having sleepless nights. I want to do this right, have fun and meet new people.
Then if our organization decides it’s not for them, then I will have the experience to try this on my own. Really guys I do respect all of you, and the way that you take care of your customers and people with questions. If it weren’t for you guys I would not have gotten this far in my research.
