Hosting a fundraising gala this fall? Worried about filling all the seats at your tables or achieving your fundraising goal? I surveyed top Event Managers from across the country to gain the secrets to their gala success.
At this time of year, it is not uncommon to hear someone say, “Give the gift of presence rather than presents.” It makes sense. After all, the December holidays have been commercialized beyond repair and it’s easy to miss the opportunity to be present with the people with whom gather.
Being present can be risky, but could also be worth it! Connection is what makes us human. This holiday season, I challenge you to have intentional conversations with your family or friends. Don't worry, I make some suggestions for how to do this to help you out.
Since my daughter was born, the question I get most from people (friends, strangers at the store, family) is “how does it feel to be a father?” The response you are supposed to give is “I love it.” If I am honest, I didn’t put a lot of thought into birth plans, registries, or how the nursery should look. I didn’t have a vision for being a father before Micole and I got pregnant. Yet, once that journey began then vision for fathering awoke within me.
Depending on your profession, trying to land a job in Q3 or Q4 is tough (if not impossible). Year-end projections are in, so budgets tend to be frozen. Besides the Retail industry, few companies hire after Thanksgiving.
So if you are job hunting right now (like I am) then you should pay attention to the tips shared here.
