Who Am I to Be a Grant Writer?
Welcome back to this special Podcast Power Series, Grant Writer FAST Focus. This week I’m going to help you develop the confidence and clarity you need to start your grant writing career.
Should You Try Grant Writing?
Many new grant writers are paralyzed by the question, “Where do I start?” Even if they have some nonprofit experience, they still battle imposter syndrome.
However, I talk to so many talented people with great experience who are passionate about their nonprofit work. Some have even written grants before – and they still don’t think they have what it takes to be a grant writer.
They think, “Who would want to work with me? Should I just work for free to get some experience? What do I have to offer a nonprofit?”
Let’s Change the Script
You probably already have a lot of valuable skills that can really help your community. You have some God-given abilities that make you unique. You need to show up with those. But until you realize that and get out of your own way, you won’t be able to use them effectively. Let’s change that. The world needs you out there making a difference.
The Fast Track to Grant Writer group program and my 1:1 coaching go deep into this, and this is exactly what I help my clients with. I created this free power series for you on the podcast to help you get started and, more than anything, believe that it IS possible for you and to see how you can start to put those pieces together.
Hang with me this week, because over the next 4 days we’re going to talk about the mindset shifts AND practical strategies you need to believe that you can be a good grant writer.
How Is This Different?
My Challenge to You
Grant Writer Power Series
Be on the lookout this week, because every day for 4 days in a row a new episode in this power series is going to drop. These episodes are short because I don’t want you to get caught up in the weeds of self-doubt. I’m calling it a power series for a reason – instead of overwhelming you with a bunch of information, I want you to focus on one powerful action step each day.
