    What is Strategic Volunteering - Susan Finch

    in Entrepreneur

    How do you continue to grow your business in a meaningful way that makes a difference? Implementing a Cause Marketing Strategy is an important first step.

    But before you select a nonprofit partner – you need to create a Strategic Volunteer strategy and do your research. Effective cause marketing campaigns are built on solid foundations and taking the time to choose the best partner for your business is key to creating a successful outcome. More importantly, you need to think beyond the money. Strategic Volunteering is not just the monetary contribution. It’s also about donating time, products and services.

    This week’s Guest, Susan Finch, is a web developer, strategic content and graphics creator, social marketing advisor, co-host/control room Google+ Hangout On Air maestro, and your personal web trainer. Susan also knows a lot about Strategic Volunteering and is sharing her best tips and advice for business owners.

    Susan is the President of The Binky Patrol, a not-for-profit organization she founded 14 years ago to provide hand sewn, knitted, crocheted or quilted blankets to unwed mothers for their newborn babies as well as children and teens in need of comfort: those who are ill, abused, in shelters, foster care or experiencing any type of trauma. 

    The stories at The Binky Patrol will make your heart sing with joy… you can easily get involved… and it’s easy to make a Binky… watch this video to learn more!

    Please connect with Susan via her website, Google+, Twitter and The Binky Patrol. She would LOVE to hear from you!

This truly is a mind blowing process y'all!  You will want to learn this!  Her story in her book "Pebbles in the Pond Wave Three" addresses an issue we all face at one time or another, the isolation of not feeling good enough and steps to address and squash those self-imposed lies!  Check her out and pick up her book at SabrinaMartinez.com.

    Volunteering for Boating Safety and Rescue Work

    in Motivation

    I get asked this question constantly, ‘how do I do what you are doing’?  The answer is that I do not have the answer, that is for you to decide and it begins with a discovery phase and personal volition.  

    I manage a company (K38) that is an educational provider for occupational users with the knowledge being applied to their agency requirements and area of operations. K38 is not an organization that provides volunteer opportunities for RWC use, but I do have supportive answers that I followed myself through the years to get to the level of volunteerism that I enjoy today. 

    My lessons learned were prior to RWC’s being accepted by safety agencies beginning in the late 1970’s, many years have passed and I’m still learning and adapting my knowledge base. There are great organizations you can investigate and interview to discover if you fit into their mission status and if you have a willingness to ‘pay your dues’ and join up.

    Perhaps you don’t have a Rescue Water Craft background but you have passion for volunteering your energies. In the back of your mind there is a gnawing thought you visit often, you want to help.  You don’t have any direct connections. You don’t know anyone and you don’t know where to start. 

    Perhaps you own your own Personal Watercraft and have assisted others in the past while out riding and you realize the value of helping others and want to apply yourself through a focused group effort.  First off realize that you are addressing a ‘specific use’ of application.

    Water Rescue Teams often employ several different methods, and disciplines or they may not use Rescue Water Craft (PWC).  Typically a Rescue Water Craft is not the sole tool of water safety needs, it’s one of many employed on ‘some’ teams.  

    Let's look at constructive ideas for you!
