 095: 3 Steps for Ultimate Self-Care for Nonprofits | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:19:07

Self-care is vital! But how do we do it? I’d love to hear your ways, so if you have some great ideas, please send me an email at holly@grantwritingandfunding.com! 1)Plan your week in advance Self-care isn’t just doing nothing, but it is being intentional with your time. If you live in a big rush of overwhelm every week having huge projects that never end, then it is time to start creating your time. Believe me, if you do not sit down once a week and plan out all of your strategic blocks of time to get those projects done, they won’t get done. They will be on your to-do list for waaaay longer than you want. And by being on your to-do list for so long (with little to no forward movement), then they become big looming monsters that grow in size. Just the thought of them starts to stress you out and overwhelm you. Instead, give that goal an end date and then work backward week-by-week writing down one step toward that goal you can accomplish and schedule it in your planner. If you goal has a hard deadline then it makes it easier as you know exactly where to work backward from! Don’t overthink this step. Just sit down for an hour once a week and schedule out your entire week. Even your schedule for the gym, picking up the kids, buffer time in checking your email and even downtime. 2) Say no more than yes You have your week scheduled so you know what your bandwidth is. But I also know that life happens and sometimes you stray off your best-intentioned schedule. There’s a party you didn’t know about, your kid gets sick, you have a migraine one day, there’s a storm, etc. That’s why it is important to factor in buffer time and move forward in at least one step on each project per week rather than waiting for the last week to do it all! (Yes, guilty at doing that at times). But as Robin Arzon says, “No is a complete sentence.” She’s right. It is easier to say no when you are in the habit of planning your time! The thing is if it isn’t a complete, “Heck, yeah!” it should be a no. That is a good indicator. If you aren’t truly excited about it, then you are going to dread doing it and nobody wants that energy. But even before the “heck, yeah” comes out of your mouth, what you should say is, “let me check my planner and get back to you.” Because you need to see what your bandwidth allows. I even schedule my volunteer work in my planner because it is a part of my load. Now when people ask me to volunteer for additional items, I know that my volunteer time is already filled up. I don’t even tell them I will check my calendar, my answer is, “my plate is already full.” 3) Listen to your body Sometimes you do need that day off! I know that I like to hustle hard. I love to fill my schedule and accomplish big audacious goals. But sometimes, I need a day off when it isn’t planned. My body’s way of telling me to slow down and take an unintentional day off is giving me a migraine. Yes, I believe that our bodies are smarter than our minds with survival. And my body is like, here is a migraine to make you go lie down and take a nap. Of course, I can’t always do that, but most often I don’t have a choice. I know it’s going to be a day that I will get a massage and an early night to sleep and that if I push through my work won’t be that productive anyway. But the next morning, after a massage and an early to bed night I am 110% slaying my projects. Listen to the podcast on iTunes, SoundCloud, Stitcher or watch on YouTube!

 092: What, Why, & How Nonprofits Can Get Money (Not from Grants) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:27:14

**Get your Free Checklist Downloadable www.grantwritingandfunding.com/90 Are you looking for ways to increase money for your nonprofit, or nonprofits that you work with, that doesn’t include funding from grants? Diversifying streams of income for nonprofits is vital. Many clients, especially start-up nonprofits, may think that grants are the only type of funding that they can get. Today, you are going to learn many ways of creating products for your nonprofit. These ideas may help your nonprofit bring in extra revenue that is for operational funds. Why Nonprofit Products Sell You might say, “Ugh. Not another t-shirt for sale! We are competing with millions of others. Why would anyone buy our product?” The truth is that consumers are spending their money more and more these days, on items that make a difference. Consumers are realizing the power and voice in how they spend their dollars. We’ve seen a huge shift in the #shoppingforgood movement where consumers are comparing brands and shopping for items that are actually impacting the world in good ways. We see the reflection of how consumers are shopping with this conscious shopping in mind, especially among millennials. A really cool online platform is called The Good Shop, where you can shop online for thousands of brands and then choose where you want a portion of the profits to go. These nonprofit causes are vetted and show transparency. It is pretty cool! What Products Sell: Ideas for Goods/Products Backpacks / fanny packs Business Card Holders Coffee mugs / Flasks Cookies / Baked Goods Sweatshirts and sweaters Food Truck! (What, yeah!) Hats and caps Jewelry Luggage Tags Notebooks Phone covers Purses Stuffed animals / plushies Tote bags T-shirts Wallets How Products Sell Start Small You’ll want to start small and test the market. Instead of investing thousands into a food truck or converting a kitchen into a commercial kitchen, maybe you test your cookies on a small scale first. Test out what types of cookies sell and unique recipes. Do a survey Put together some product ideas and ask your followers or community what they like and would purchase! This can easily be some mock-ups of different items and price points. If they won’t buy, make sure you ask them why not without badgering them. The feedback will help with your business design! Get Start-Up Capital There are 5 different ways to get capital to help you with developing the products: Pre-Ordering, Corporate investment, Small Business Administration, Grants, and Crowdfunding campaigns. Now is a great time to create products for your nonprofit. Consumers want to engage with your branding and to shop for good reasons. They need clothes, so why not advertise their ethics on their clothing? This will also raise the reach of your branding as often clothes with a great message or interesting logo can start conversations which lead to sharing the nonprofit’s mission. Please share your different product ideas by tagging us @grantwriting_funding on Instagram! I’m SUPER excited about next week’s post! I interviewed Mr. Rodney Walker, President of Grant Central USA. He is absolutely amazing and has helped secure well over $300 million for nonprofits. He also has a super active community on LinkedIn and is one of the most positive individuals I have ever met!

 091: 5 Ways Your Nonprofit Can Make Money from Services | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:21:20

**Get your Free Checklist Downloadable https://www.grantwritingandfunding.com/90 Today, I'm going to discuss 5 different ways that your nonprofit can make some extra money! 1) General Services: According to MissionBox, a fee-for-service approach for nonprofits is defined as “nonprofit uses its earnings to support its mission and prioritizes benefit to the community over profits. Your organization can grow financial sustainability with a fee-for-service model.” 2) Memberships I see a lot of 501(c)6 nonprofits utilizing the basic membership service approach. For example, a Chamber of Commerce, Lions Club, etc. may charge individuals, nonprofits, and corporations a fee to enjoy the membership of the organization. 3) Tuition Fees This is commonly associated with universities, but you could also think of this if your nonprofit is (or can!) offer any knowledge sessions. Nonprofit colleges and schools do charge tuition fees! Just because it is a nonprofit college doesn’t mean it is dirt cheap tuition fees, either! 4) Speaking Engagements / Appearances Your executive director, people who serve on your board of directors, or even some of your volunteers probably have amazing stories! Of course, all won’t necessarily be offered a financial contribution to be speakers, but some might be. Building up to speak at national or international conferences can include a nice side income. But even speaking at local trade associations or chambers can produce some money. 5) Renting out Space Does your nonprofit have a building or physical space? Are you utilizing the space at all times? Well even if you’re not, your are paying for rent 24/7! If you aren’t utilizing the space at all times, you may consider renting out some of that unused space! You could rent out to other nonprofits or individuals to run workshops, AA groups, training, or even baby showers! Maybe your office is closed on the weekends, but a smaller house church would love to rent out your conference room on Sundays? Or maybe you have a beautiful garden area outside (or real quick want to create one!) and you can rent it out for weddings or photoshoots? Don’t forget to grab the FREE downloadable from last week’s episode! Next week, we will discuss developing goods/product ideas for nonprofits to sell that can help bring in even more funding!
