The wrapper

You might know what you want to achieve – a service or product or program that you’d love to see happen. Maybe you’ve already started doing it.

Today’s question is, what is the minimum ‘wrapper’ – all the additional activities, people, organisational structures, resources – that you’ll need to make your thing impactful and sustainable?

This is partly a business model question: what do you need to do to make sure that things like accounting, managing your computers, and paying your pension happen?

It’s also about making sure you’ve got the support you need: who do you need to have around to encourage you, share ideas with you, see how you are if you’ve gone a bit quiet?

A good wrapper will make it that much easier to get your thing to its destination in the best possible condition.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and recommended resources...
