Not a week goes by when a new advocate tells me he or she plans to establish their new advocacy practice as a non-profit organization. “Why do you think you want to establish your practice as a non-profit?” I ask. “Because then I won’t have to ask patients for money,” is the nonsensical response. “Then where will your money come from?” I continue. “How will you sustain your business?” ….crickets….. then….. “That’s why I called (or wrote to) you!” Yikes.
