Principles

We are guided in our conversations by these principles:

Smile! We are walking with you as you figure out
how to run your organization

You matter.  Whatever your job title is (or isn’t), you have everything you need to make a real difference for a cause you love. You are an expert in what matters. We’re here to help shine a little sunlight on how powerful you are.

Where you live matters. You are proud of where you live. We are too! We know there are geographical, cultural, and other differences across our communities. We celebrate what makes communities unique.

Our words are an invitation.  We don’t claim to have all the right answers for every situation. There usually isn’t one right way to do something.  We’re here to share what we’ve learned and invite you to make it your own.  

Let’s talk.  We all learn best when we ask questions, listen, and share.  We’re counting on you to make this podcast a community. Write in comments, ask us questions, share what works for you. We’ll be sure to keep the conversation going!

Our advice is free. There is no such thing as a trade secret when it comes to nonprofit work. The stronger nonprofits are as a whole, the stronger we’ll each be on our own. If you want to support the expenses of the show, we warmly invite you to donate.

We hope that you will hear the smile in our voices as we talk about topics that matter. We are excited to have this opportunity to be a part of your important work. 

With gratitude for all you do!
Nancy, Sarah, and JoAnn
