    Nonprofit 501c3 Tax Exempt Status: Idea to Reality

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 4

    I am author of the Do Your Own Nonprofit 51-book state series and Nonprofit Touchdown: Winning the 501c3 Game Against IRS. Also founder of Pasture Valley Children Missions and Owner of Chalfant Eckert Publishing, a traditional publisher with hybrid qualities allowing authors to keep their rights and royalties while enjoying world-class publishing services. I can take your idea for a nonprofit organization, even if it is only an idea, and turn it into a reality quickly. The paperwork and process are intimidating, but not to me. Let me help you get it finished so you can get to the mission you are on to make the world a better place! I put my rates in at $50 an hour. For new U.S. nonprofits less than 27 months old with annual revenue this minute of less than $50,000 and assets less than $250,000, that hourly rate translates to 2 hours total for the state and federal paperwork. The exception is for schools, hospitals, churches. That paperwork is much more involved and will require a closer look and a conversation to come up with what is fair and gets the job done. In any case, I am fair, reasonable, know what I am doing, don't waste my time or yours, and provide quality work. Are you are writer? Want to know your actual publishing potential? Need a ghostwriter, content or developmental editor, copy editor or proofreader, publicist? Chalfant Eckert Publishing has them all at a fair price for GREAT work. Some of our authors have been publicized into Best Seller status and have made appearances on national syndicated talk shows. We are good at what we do, we have to be. I own the company and I won't settle for anything less! LOTS of references available upon request for nonprofit services and publishing, including attorneys. What are you waiting for? It is time to get started!

    Professional Coach and Labor Attorney

    United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 1

    In 2012 I chose to transition from a solid 20-year career as an attorney earning six figures and great benefits to opening my own business and becoming my own boss. Trust me, while it was a natural progression for me, it was not an easy transition in many respects. However, most of the difficulty was rooted in my own fears and perceptions. Getting to the other side of all that is what it is all about. I know about fear and risk. And I know about business. My experience in business spans from retail and resale to the service industries. Following your internal compass is one of the most important, yet challenging, tasks in business, and in life. My objective is to help business owners stay on task. Whether it is goal-setting, business turnaround, employee performance issues, vendor communication challenges, or a new business startup, I am ready to help you chart the best course of action based on your values and priorities. Two heads are better than one, so let's talk!
