PMAs are nothing new, but the knowledge of the Power of PMAs is new to most of us. It is important for us to continue to take responsibility for our own education. As a certified PMA Power Advisor, I (Angela Harders) am eager to share with you the knowledge that I have gained about PMAs in hopes of contributing to your own self-education as well as serving you through the proper preparation of your founding documents.

In this book, you will find the answers to the following questions:

  • What is a PMA?
  • What is the history of PMAs?
  • What are the pros and cons of a PMA?
  • What is the difference between the public and private domains?
  • Who can or should create a PMA?
  • What are the different types of PMAs?
  • How is a PMA created?
  • What is the problem with a 501(c)(3)?
  • Can my business be a ministry?
  • How much does it cost to start a PMA?
  • Special Considerations: Private Health Associations (PHA)
  • Special Considerations: Private Education Associations (PEA)
  • How can I learn more about PMAs?

While I will provide you with ample resources through which to begin your journey of faith and freedom, I cannot put in the work for you. However, I will be here to support you along the way. If there are additional questions that you have that I have not covered in this book, please email them to me at:
