Posted by Alexis Nunez on Oct 11, 2018 12:54:29 PM

For some of us, it’s hard. It’s hard to make the connection between what we’re good at, what excites us, what makes us money, what connects us with other people, what will make us grow/learn, and what a business or our world at large could truly benefit from that only we can contribute to.

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ― Maya Angelou

The best fundraisers are authentic friends. They genuinely care about the wellbeing of their donors, understand their needs and what drives them and, when it’s time to “make the ask”, aren’t trying to pitch or sell. Rather, they are giving their donors a gift -- the gift of an opportunity to find meaning, purpose, and connection.

How To Use Your Friend Group As Your Personal Board of Advisors

Why Not A Freelancer? 4-Step Nonprofit Guide for Starting with Freelance Teams

Throughout my work, our organization has had a need for a variety of types of talent. We work with volunteers, employ hourly and salaried staff, and hire contractors and freelancers. From the freelance world, I’ve worked with freelance graphic designers, board development consultants, and web developers, each offering a degree of flexibility, the agility that only working for one’s self can bring, and great results.

Get Freelance Projects: How Collaborating Makes Us More Powerful As Individuals
