Welcome to this page. If you’ve clicked through to this page, then you’ve been around the grant writing block a few times. Any maybe now you’re finding it increasingly exhausting or a drudge and struggle with work/life balance. I know. I’ve been there. I love grant writing but several years ago I found myself losing my enthusiasm for it and I knew there just had to be a better way. So, I got really strict about setting work/life boundaries and it was tough to make that leap but I learned from it that we can still be successful and have a good life. I’m happy to share what I’ve learned with you.
If you’re like most of the grant folks that I know, my guess is that you’re generally positive and upbeat and you’re really looking for a saner way to approach grant writing to make the work flow more easily and create greater spaciousness and harmony in your life.
I’d love to:
Guide you to adding some juice and spice to your work and life.
Share what I’ve learned of late in the grants world that would help you be more effective.
If you’re in the ‘intermediate’ range, support you in upping your game and getting better results.
Make the work flow more easily and create greater spaciousness and harmony in your life.
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.
And here are a few options for services and programs that I offer
Ask Me Anything Sessions
As it says, you can Ask Me Anything – such as:
Grant writing questions you’re just a bit too embarrassed to ask at a GPA or AFP meeting
Questions about your grant writing career and which way is the best direction for you right now
How to bring your heart and soul fully into your work
If you would like better results or always feel like you are winging it and want to really learn how to write a grant proposal, the Grant Writer’s Well might be for you. It's an 8-week in-depth, high impact, online course in which you learn the art of writing effective grants while living a good life at the same time. You’ll write a full, and effective, draft proposal that puts your most beautiful vision for the world into action through your grant writing. The result is a more effective grant writing strategy and a fulfilled life. Learn more.
