Meg Nanson is the founder of an organization called The Great Exchange, which promotes self-advocacy among intellectually disabled adults by setting them up with volunteer pathways and teaching them to network with nonprofits around the city of Austin, Texas.
This blog is about the process of starting that organization. It is intended to both document the journey and serve as a resource for anyone interested in starting their own project or organization, from a novel to a social movement. Meg expects to both experience triumphs and make mistakes along the way, and she’s especially interested in sharing the mistakes. Also, she hates writing in the third person, but that seems to be what most people do in their “About” sections.
