I previously sat on the Executive Committee of a wonderful non-profit education institute in Australia. I also worked as a lecturer, marketer and events manager.
Feeling maxed most of the time I was looking at transitioning into "business development". So I pitched the idea to the Chairman. His response:
You can work business development when we have a business to develop!
The lesson was one of first principles, applicable to any business. Do with it what you will.
