I plan to start nonprofit 501c3 that will help other nonprofits with their social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.) Right now I'm employed by company in similar field. There is no conflict of interest.
I already help 5-6 nonprofits for free. There was few more nonprofits asked me for help but I had to turn them down because I simply do not have time enough. That's why I got an idea to start nonprofit that will help other nonprofits for really affordable fee. I would be employed by “my” nonprofit and I'll have more time and I would be able to help many other nonprofits.
I did a lot of research and I know pretty much all about how to start nonprofit, about the registration. I have Mission statement, Business plan for first three years, Startup costs... I have also a picture in my head how the nonprofit should/could look like after 5 (or more) years.
"Only" part I can't find any information and it's totally unclear to me is my "transit" from volunteering to full time job. I know my nonprofit will not be able to employ me within the first 12 months (maybe even more). And I know I would need to keep my current job to be able to pay the rent. But after 3rd year, according to my business plan, the revenue should be big enough for me get employed. How that “transition” works? How to know when is the time for get employed? What's the “sign”? Also, if I can be employed part-time after 2nd year – is that ok? How that works?
Thanks for any help...
