Developing a Go-Giver Nonprofit Ripple Effect
Lately we’ve been talking about being a go-giver and how this mindset shift can change not only your own life, but also those around you.
Today we’re taking that a step further. I’m talking with the loveliest couple, John David Mann and Ana Gabriel Mann, about their new book The Go-Giver Marriage.
Our personal and professional lives are so intertwined; we need to take care of both. Whether you’re married or not, this episode is full of golden tips for strengthening relationships both personally and within a go-giver nonprofit.
John and Ana share:
- How creativity affects our work
- The importance of using music, arts, and other skills throughout our lives
- How learning structure informs everything we do
- Interesting comparison of grant writing and book publishing
- Both grant funders and book publishers: “They’d rather say no than yes because no is a lot safer.” – John David Mann
- “You have to have a very real emotional hook at the front of your grant.” – Ana Gabriel Mann
- “Own your own material. Then there’s room for everybody to grow, and there’s room for compassion.” – Ana Gabriel Mann
- Don’t be afraid to get feedback, whether to refine our grant writing or our marriage
