Tired of feeling undervalued, underpaid, and overworked by your understaffed nonprofit? You’ve been thrust into grant writing and now you can’t stop wondering - Could I possibly break into Freelance Grants Consulting AS A CHRISTIAN ENTREPRENEUR? Could I, once again, feel purpose-driven and fulfilled in my life and work while partnering with God in this process? Is your mind telling you it’s impossible because you’re “underqualified” and “inexperienced”? Do you wonder: Is anyone is actually successful at doing this? If so, they must have some serious connections in the nonprofit world. Are you struggling with how much you should charge as a grants consultant? Where do you get clients and how do you leverage that marketing and branding thing again? Six years ago when our nonprofit was $4,000 in the hole after our grant writer disappeared with our money. I thought to myself: FORGET IT! I’LL DO IT MYSELF! I too know what it’s like to be cross-eyed on page 6 of a “Grants for Business” Google search in an effort to figure this grants thing out. Like you, I fell into grant writing and it turns out, I LOVE IT! The research, the writing that connects head and heart, and the privilege of helping Visionaries advance their world-changing missions. When I first started I too was paralyzed by those questions. So paralyzed in fact that I launched my business TWICE - thinking “Maybe I should take another training!” 5 certifications on my office wall later… Then came the break-up. Between myself and fear that is. I re-launched my business and now I have the freedom to choose who I want to work with-or not! I have the flexibility to spend more time with my four growing children! And there’s no co-workers around to give me dirty looks when I’m blasting Andy Mineo while cranking out a business grant narrative at midnight.
