The gift of encouragement, support, candor and renewal.

People ask me  why  I do what I do. For me its quite simple- I believe that the nonprofit sector is still worth being in.

Its a balancing act. Raising  money,supporting volunteers, providing quality programs, balancing budgets.

It’s hard, but impactful work. This will never change.

But I also have a few other beliefs: No fear of sacred cows, no hype; only fairness. I know so many of you are burnt out. Fearful and tired. Exhausted from the balancing act. You need an unbiased ear sage advice and candor.

I want to help you heal your heart and tap  into that magical passion which brought you to the sector initially. That excitement, and love.

So I did this twice last year and had a blast!!!. In May, I’m opening up my appointment schedule.  If you want coaching, put yourself on my schedule

And pay whatever you want.

I’m serious.

Pay what you can. Get what you need.

You decide what the coaching is worth to you and your organization. My hourly rate is $250, but you decide what to pay. I know so many of you work for small non profits with smaller budgets. You barely have money for needed supplies let alone professional development, but you deserve it.

60  minutes of investment in your organizations greatest asset–YOU

Do you face these challenges?

  • The struggle for resources, exposure and individual volunteers
  •  The need to create new program models that are self-funded
  •  Limited volunteer opportunities or a volunteer experience that is episodic
  • Inconsistent program results
  • Decreasing donations and  shrinking funding base
  • Management by crisis
  • No clear or easy way of engaging corporate and civic groups beyond check writing
  • Failing to learn from mistakes that occur over and over again
  • Strategic objectives that  are not followed, talked about or made clear

I can help.

Whatever you need from our time together- coaching ,mentoring, strategizing- I’ll get you on track. Let’s explore together what’s possible.  It’s my gift to you. The gift of  encouragement, support, candor and renewal.

As my friend Michele says : I’m not a lawyer, so you won’t find any small print. Only smallish print:  

This experiment only applies to appointments that take place in May on the phone, and it will be first–come, first-served.  You must pay something. This offer is limited to two phone appointments per person in the month of  May.  Due to logistics, I’m not able to do in-person coaching with this offer. This offer expires May  28, 2011. If you cancel, you may not be able to reschedule in May.

Let’s get started. Reserve your appointment  using my online scheduler:  https://my.timedriver.com/BWGYN
