Well… I certainly have.
You see, as a business owner I work hard to make my business a big success for my clients, a sustainable income source for my family, and a place where my employees feel safe.
Well… I failed on all three.
My business got hammered during COVID-19, leaving me with almost no customers, scared employees, and a weakened family…
… and I only blamed myself.
No one was paying attention to what my company did, and my employees thought I was just supporting a useless, undesirable operation.
I worked too hard to see my child fail like that.
In hindsight, I realized that the business did not fail because of COVID-19. It failed because of me…
I was so caught up in profiting from my customers that I never thought about what my relationship with them was like.
I just cared (a bit too much) about the top line.
And so I never really had a relationship with the people who bought from me.
To them, I only exist because of my products, and when they had no more use for it… they never came back (yes, even the most loyal, “best-friend”-type clients never came back).
So… that is when I started to look at some bigger companies to see what they were doing and how they had survived… and to be honest, it was very simple… they focused on “giving before receiving“.
It is not charity… it is a mindset where a business focuses on reaching people and helping them before they even become a paying customer.
That’s right – it is about leaving a positive impact on someone (the giving) before they even give you their money (the receiving).
Now creating impact can take place in many forms. Charity is one of them, but, surprisingly, that’s not what these big companies focus on.
They focus on creating a relationship based on information (secrets, even) that will transform their customers’ lives for the better.
They focus on putting the idea of “being human” first.
And that’s exactly what you can do with digital non-profits.
With a good strategy, you can use your non-profit to educate, provides insane value that captivates the heart of your prospects, and create a valuable relationship with them based on trust and goodwill.
We know how valuable your time is as a business owner… so each module is short, simple, and one step closer to getting you to success.
Digital Non-Profit refers to the new breed of companies – whether nonprofits, B corporations or mainstream service providers looking to change the world and deliver the highest value first – and we believe if we’re truly helping people, the money will follow. It is about being an advocate for your customers and always putting their needs ahead of yours. It is about being human first.
In 2013 and 2014,the average IRS approval time ranged from 10 to 18+ months – but even with the Full 1023 Application for 501(c)3 Tax Exempt Status, Instant Nonprofit files averaged less than four months. At this time, the average approval time for ImpactAnnex customer applications is 4 to 8 weeks.
The IRS’s website is enormous and might be challenging to browse. One suggestion is to search the IRS.gov website using Google. Here are some useful websites for learning more about the Form 1023’s tax-exempt approved status. A summary of the Form 990 is also provided here. The Independent Sector is a trade group with headquarters in Washington, D.C., with a very forward-thinking lobbying purpose. They provide top-notch resources for governance and educational possibilities.
Using knowledge, technology, and years of trial and error, the best formula for quick approval was discovered. We treat the kind people at the IRS in the same way that we vow to be as personable as possible with our consumers. Like everywhere else, a small number of people make mistakes, but countless more work hard to perform a good job. You can obtain really quick approval timeframes if you work to assist them in doing that.
