We've all been there. Laundry has piled up. Your car needed an oil change yesterday. Your kid needs to be driven to soccer practice. You're trying to schedule interviews for a new development director. The gala is coming up, and you need to decide between cream or eggshell napkins. And you're thinking about how you're going to keep up with all the news, changes and tips for grant writing. It's a lot.
I know that as nonprofit leaders, you don't have a lot of free time. Some of you don't even have time to read through a weekly blog post. So how are you to stay informed with what's happening in the grant world?
Something that I really like to do is listen to grant specific podcasts while I'm driving, traveling, folding clothes etc. It's a really easy way to stay connected while I'm on the go, and I even listen to episodes when I'm emailing clients or uploading applications to portals. I have complied a short list of podcasts for you to download and listen to as you juggle your families, organizations, clients and other responsibilities.
There are many more out there (maybe a Sharpshooter Podcast one day). But these should get you started.
