You cannot succeed in life or in fundraising if you have an anemic goal, mission, or vision statement.
Successful fundraising is NOT about asking for money; it's about MUCH MORE than that.
Thought rules the world.
Too often, in the process of anticipating the search for funds, fundraisers forget or take for granted the underlying idea that inspired their purpose or porject, focusing only on the acquisition of dollars.
In fundraising, as in business, money follows great ideas.
Sometimes, an idea that started as a burning desire burns out over time and needs to be rekindled.
