How do you stand out in this persuasive field?
The idea is to find the niche in the market for your area that has a
gap. If a Fundraiser Consultant is already present, maybe you can
combine your service with planning and coordinating services.
Take a field inventory of the groups and
organizations that have to raise funds in order to survive.
Based on the nature of their focus, can you see the types of events
and campaigns you might need to offer. You can also be an educator
and host special workshops in the community about fundraising and
capital campaigns! This will put your name and face out there, build
your reputation and encourage more clients!
...the main goal is: to run it more like a
business and less like a hobby
As a natural planning and organizer, you enjoy making SUCCESS
HAPPEN! Raising funds for charity organizations and non-profit
agencies gives you deep satisfaction knowing that you are helping a
worthy cause, interest and foundation for the community.

CREATIVITY & CONTACTS
Have the know-how already and a contact
base that makes you viable for this type of work is the first step
in going independent. You probably have always been creative in your
efforts to help others raise funds and you enjoy event planning and
Having a business on your own and perhaps even working from the
home offers a lifestyle of independence, flexibility and diversion.
Your current job may not offer this, yet being on your own can
release you from a work that confines you. This may, of course,
offer you a 'comfort zone' that you are use to, yet doing something
that you truly enjoy doing makes up the difference.
As for education, most do not have degrees or certification.
They have prior experience, a long list of contacts, knowledge of
the community and creative ideas. Having the talent and the
willingness to be an entrepreneur is your motive for starting a
business. It's up to you as to how you might use a degree,
additional education or certification, yet word of mouth and
building your reputation is key to a successful venture. If you know
how to raise money for groups, you will be sought out!
