Yo Ho Yo Ho a Non-Profit Life for Me

Mandy Cleveland used to think she wanted to be a teacher in a classroom.  It didn't take long to realize her classroom would be an arena, her students; adults, teen, youth and horses. In 2001, Mandy founded Stable Strides Farm, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that teaches children and adults with disabilities to become confident, independent and competitive equestrian athletes. Mandy serves as the program director and advanced instructor for Stable Strides Farm.

Some key points Mandy will discuss as she shares her journey in the non-profit world:

  • Don't forget who you're serving
  • People need to see you, the leader, sweating
  • Hire people who are smarter than you
  • Importance of your Board of Directors
  • Be prepared and expect to need a side hustle
  • Why start your own - can you really add something different to the industry OR should you join forces with someone with similar vision
  • Sell the "why", make your mission addictive

Workshops are held from 7:30–9:00 a.m. on the second Tuesday of each month

  • Enjoy a complimentary breakfast
  • Meet other women business owners
  • Benefit from professional development
