5.0 out of 5 stars Nonprofit Guru-Great Read
The book RESPECT by Maryann Fleming is part memoir, part how to and ultimately offered ideas on how to succeed in business. I was particularly engaged by her many stories. I really liked that most of the how to’s came from her personal experience starting and running a successful nonprofit business for twenty-five years
