The word “divergent” can easily be viewed in a negative light. It can be read as straying from the right path, following flights of fancy and going off in directions that may lead to dead ends. And, those are exactly the kinds of journeys Josh Jacobson, founder of Next Stage Consulting, likes to take.
After a successful career in nonprofit development in New York, Jacobson moved to Charlotte in 2008 and took a very different path, exploring how nonprofits could run like for-profit businesses … and how for-profit businesses could embrace the work of nonprofits. After years of laying the framework in Charlotte, he’s ready to focus on where his divergent path will ultimately take him and the organizations and businesses who’ve embraced his ideas.
That’s what he shared at the February gathering of CreativeMornings/Charlotte. And, it’s what he and Tim Miner discuss on this batch of The Biscuit CLT podcast.
This Biscuit CLT Podcast was produced by Charlotte Is Creative and Andy Goh.
