Today’s show is a unique one, in which Clint dives into the ‘Not For Profit’ model to dig up all the pros and cons, as well as the specifics when it comes to dance studios around the globe who have positioned themselves in this sector. This is a subject we have never broached in our podcasts or blogs, so are really excited to bring it to you today to shed some light and explore your possibilities with our guest expert, Eric B Jacobson.
In his field of work, Eric has supported organizations small and large to improve their financial sustainability, enhance their communications, conduct scientific research, and develop their programs. Some of his previous Not-for-profit work includes the Wildlife Conservation Society, the Alliance to Save Energy, and the League of Conservation Voters.
Eric is also a brilliant and nationally-recognized West Coast Swing instructor and competitor, and founder of ‘The Naked Basics’ tribe of dancers and dance instructors, making him the perfect guest of choice for our conversation today!
