You’re in the market for a non-profit consultant, right? So please allow me to introduce myself. I’m not your average non-profit consultant. I’m not a talking head. I probably won’t tell you everything you want to hear. Are you ready to run yet? No? Good!
I want you to think of me as your friend…a good friend. You know that friend you had in college; the one who you could just be yourself with? Go ahead…take a trip down memory lane. Are you there yet? Yes! That friend! That’s ME!
So now you’re all warm and fuzzy. You feel like you’ve found your favorite blanket and you’re ready to tuck into the favorite part of your couch and tell me everything…right?
Well before I excite you (and I know if you’re anything like me the suspense is killing you) I want you to know something.
You might find this hard to believe but I am not for everyone. No really…I’m not.
I might be irreverent at times and maybe too colloquial for your usual taste. I’m the kind of friend that will tell you the truth. The truth about where you are as an executive. The truth about where you are as a board. The truth about where your organization is headed. About how you can really attract donor –investors or recruit and retain amazing talent. The truth about what it will REALLY take to make sure your nonprofit grows from awesome to AMAZING. I will help you create your next bright idea.
Like a good friend I will support you but I will tell you what I really think; what my gut says is the issue and what the data supports. I will ask you to look deeper. To be introspective. To think. I help you get clear.
Like a good friend…a true friend…I will always have your best interests at heart. Because ultimately I’m here for you.
So…can we be friends?
