"Being a storyteller, I appreciated Dan's call for more stories in nonprofits. Whether you're struggling or succeeding in your start-up, or you've been around for awhile and know a thing or two about gaining notoriety as a nonprofit, this book reminds us all that at the core what really matters is story - the good and bad, the not so pretty and the unbelievable. The public wants to know, and Dan will show you how to tell them." - Elora Nicole, Author
