Emotional Intelligence & EAP/EAL

The crossover of this exciting field with ours!


Non-Profit vs For-Profit

Which is Right for You? One of the fundamental decisions you need to make, and the information you need to make it.


All About Pricing

In this hour-long telecall, Shannon answers many of the main questions around pricing in an EAP/EAL business, such as how to determine your price and how to split the rate among the horse professional, the therapist or other professional and the farm/barn/horses. She also addresses the issue of setting a sliding scale fee, and how to structure group fees. All in all, it's a wealth of information about an issue closely tied to the success of your program.


Print Brochures: How to Look Your Best in Print

Shannon addresses the keys to looking good in your print brochure. Shannon's seen many new EAP/EAL business brochures, and Horse Sense has designed, developed and printed more than 5 brochures to date (and we're currently designing more). We've learned a lot in that process and want to share it with you.


Receive Non-Profit Dollars as a For-Profit: Fiscal Sponsorship

But with this opportunity, there are also responsibilities. This call will focus on what you need to know to set up a Fiscal Sponsorship agreement that will work for both your organization and the non-profit you want to work with. These and other questions are answered in this call with Horse Sense's Founder and Equine Specialist Shannon Knapp. Horse Sense has been in fiscal sponsorship arrangements since 2003.
