If you’ve clicked through to this page, then you’ve been a grants professional for a while and want to build a successful grants consulting practice. I’ve been a grant consultant for over 18 years and raised two beautiful children with the income from it.
Even if you are a great grant writer and love the work, building a successful consulting practice is a different kettle of fish. You need to learn how to manage your time really effectively and leave space for lead generation and accounting even when you’re working on a deadline, you need to know how to market your services, and crucially you need to learn what and who to say no to. If you’re not careful, you’ll be working long hours for an erratic income and have some clients that you don’t like or aren’t happy with your work. I can help you get good paying gigs with organizations you love without burning out.
I believe that grant writing doesn't have to be stressful to be successful. To learn more about my grant writing philosophy you can check out this page.
I’d love to show you how to:
Have a stable of clients who you are happy to work with
Manage your business so you have a steady income stream
Design a business structure that supports your life not the other way around
Make the work flow more easily and create greater spaciousness and harmony in your life.
I plan to offer the following online courses
Build a Successful Grant Consulting Practice
Team & Leadership for Grants
Building Successful Collaborations
Cultivating Relationships with Funders
Formatting tricks for large documents
I also plan to offer Small Group or Private Retreats for Experienced Grant Writers in Ithaca, NY
Please sign up here if you would like to get on the advance notice list for any of these.
