The Idea

Getting on a board of directors at a corporation is hard; getting on a non-profit board of directors is much easier. You will be able to give time to a good cause as well as network and build trust with people in a generally higher level of the business ladder.

Long-term Results

This is a long-term strategy but it’s worth a shot, especially if you’re a B2B or service business with a limited network. It works especially well if the organization can actually use your service in the future. Look some up in your city and call them to see if they have any spots available.
