How Your Nonprofit Could Be as Big as Netflix

by: Wayne Elsey

If you don't know Netflix's story, then I suggest you get the book, "No Rules Rules: Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention." When I was a nonprofit leader, I took my organization from the kitchen table to one with more than $70 million in revenue. And I did it within five years.

In the process, I continually immersed myself in learning. As we know, it's essential to keep figuring out how to grow and develop one's thinking as a leader. Many years after leaving the nonprofit, I now lead a shoe drive fundraising social enterprise. Again, I raised the organization from nothing to it becoming the largest such company in North America.
