    Mindful Shift - a conversation with Jennifer Iacovelli

    in Spirituality

    Today I am so excited to be joined by author Jennifer Iacovelli who wrote the beautiful  Simple Giving - Easy Ways to Give Every Day - 40 Ideas to Make Your World a Better Place.  I recieved this book in the mail right after getting back from the 2015 Water Conference (more on that later!).  It was the perfect gift and way to restart my program.  I started Mindful Shift after taking a leadership course from Dr. Riane Eislers Caring Economics Program.  It got me to focus on what I really wanted to do and how to make a difference from a heart based place.  The phrase 'do what you love and find a way to get paid for it', or some versions of this, always sounds slightly off to me.  I am looking forward to talking to Jennifer about this and so much more!   Jennifer is more than a writer, she is a speaker and consultant.  She has worked in the nonprofit sector, handling communications and fund-raising, for more than ten years and writes about philanthropy on her blogs Another Jennifer and Simple Giving Labs.  As chief engagement officer of the Another Jennifer Writing Lab, Jennifer helps entrepreneurs, bloggers and nonprofits tell their story.  She writes for Mom Bloggers for Social Good as part of the Global Team of 200 and is a regular contributor to World Moms Blog and HuffPost Divorce.  Jennifer is also contributing author of the book The Mother of All Meltdowns.  Her work has been featured on GOOD, BlogHer, USAID Impact, Feed the Future, and the PSI Impact Blog.  She is based in Brunswick, Maine.  That is awesome!   I am looking forward to this!!   For more info check out Jennifers website at simplegivinglab.com or her book at tarcherbooks.com.   Peace and sparkles, Andrea

    Starting A Nonprofit? Here's the Best Knowledge You Will Ever Receive!

    in Entrepreneur

    Every week, the Nonprofit Nation hosts #EverythingNonprofit. Join us for this great episode on starting a nonprofit. 

    Far too many think that starting a nonprofit is as simple as forming a corporation, getting tax-exemption and then making requests for grant funding.  There is, however, so much more to do.  A nonprofit should be thought of as a small business, not just a place to provide help to others.  The foundation is critical.   

    If you have an interest in starting a nonprofit, you won't want to miss Nonprofit expert Simone Joye, founder of several successful nonprofits including the National Association of Nonprofit Professionals (NANPP) and Young People Matter (YPM) share her proven strategies for success .

    Data-Driven Justice

    in Non-Profit

    Ralph Martire, the Executive Director for the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability (CTBA) believes it essential to have the commitment and ability to stay focused on resolving major inequities for the long term, and to work collaboratively with other experts, organizations, and opinion leaders to move the agenda forward. “Gone are the days when community leaders could gather a crowd, make an emotional appeal, and then step back and watch elected officials respond in a meaningful way”, Martire said.  “Not only must nonprofit leaders make the moral case for systemic change, they have to be prepared to back it up with evidence.”

    Join us as Ralph Martire talks about CBTA’s programs and services and ways community-based organizations can use data to drive policy, advocacy and programs to bring about social justice.
