Monmouth County, New Jersey – August 11, 2016— Makarand Utpat, non-profit startup expert and inspirational business leader, has posted a new article on his company website entitled, Leadership Tips to Keep Your New Non-Profit Passion Pumped Up! In the article, Mr. Utpat offers a long-term overview of the typical non-profit life stages.

Utpat writes, “You have a vision. You share the vision. You gather a small group of people who seem to share the passion for your vision.” He continues adding, “Before you know it, you’ve decided to launch into a dream so many have: To start a non-profit organization to help a cause close to your heart.”

According to Utpat, “Without solid leadership these entrepreneurial journeys more often than not fizzle long before anything meaningful ever happens.” “Good leadership,” writes Utpat, “requires understanding the nuances of the many challenges that face any non-profit organization particularly beyond the Idea Gestation stage.”

Utpat states, “Starting a non-profit – or any business/organization for that matter – is not unlike giving birth to a child.” He adds, “Every parent understands that bringing a new life into the world will require different skills at every stage. Likewise, it will help to know and prepare for the various stages all non-profits are likely to experience.”

According to Utpat there are, “six distinct stages in the life cycle of a non-profit organization.” He adds that, “the whole idea is to get beyond the first stage and to avoid the sixth stage!”

“As the visionary and leader of your germinating non-profit,” Utpat says, “you will be responsible for its continual nurturance and guidance. Keeping your passion pumped up must remain at the top of your priority list.”
