I am sure many of you have seen this. It is the Holstee Company Manifesto. It has been a source of inspiration for me for a couple of years now.  I wanted to share it with you all  and ask that you take  a few minutes to read it and take it all in.

Today I am coaching and teaching a  class on  starting a nonprofit and consuming lots of amazing  knowledge from colleagues.

I love days like today. I get to build and support community  in a way that taps into my natural talents and gifts.

I am a lucky girl.

Today I was able to share my passion about nonprofits and with other geeky sector folks like myself. These are people with big dreams – big hairy audacious goals that they are working hard to make reality. They are changing the way we look at  the food we eat, the way we interact with the environment,  the way we educate our young.

They are trailblazers. Their work is never simple or easy.

They are  here to transform the world. Their  lives have meaning and their gifts are impactful.

They go deeper because the world demands it.

I love my work.

So today I invite you to go out and create something powerful and transformative and  to use your passions and strengths in  ways that serve the greater good.

If you want to build core  nonprofit management skills crucial to your organization’s success you can schedule some 1:1 time with me here or learn about other ways we can work together here. You can also get inspiration, ideas, resources  tools and freebies  by signing up for my  newsletter

My Summer Reading List! – Time to turn the pages…

It’s August and it's time for my summer break. I take off every August to reset and renew prior to the Fall overwhelm, which always hits my firm as we wrap up client work for the year. I savor this time – I stare at the ocean, I eat ALL the seafood in sight, I nap,...

There’s no equity without reproductive justice: We will continue fighting for each other

Many of y'all know that every day I get up and say aloud my grounding vision for equity work. It is the famous quote from Assata Shakur: “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to...
