Building Your Grant Writing Consulting Business
I’m excited about some great new grant writing resources coming up in August! We’ll be going through a series on building your grant writing career.
This series is a sneak peek into the Fast Track to Grant Writer program where I walk you through these in detail. We talk about which ones would be best for you based on your situation and budget and then map out a custom plan for you.
What’s Your Biggest Grant Writing Challenge?
As we go through the series this month, I want to answer your questions. What’s your biggest challenge or frustration when it comes to grant writing? Email email@example.com or message me on LinkedIn.
Let me know so I can make this series content useful for you!
How Do I Start as a Grant Writer?
One of the questions I hear most is, “Where do I start?” I advise my Fast Track to Grant Writer students to find the shortest distance from Point A to Point B. Take inventory of your skills, start with what you know, and make the gap as small as possible.
Do I Need a Website as a Grant Writer?
Another question I get is, “What kind of tech tools do I need to get started? Do I need a website?“
You CAN have a website, but you don’t HAVE to. Get your LinkedIn profile in shape no matter where you are in the journey. It’s probably going to be the first thing that pops up in search results when someone googles your name, even if you have a website. It needs to look the part.
