Just a bit more to tell you... 

In my first few years of blogging, I focused on sharing strategies about grant proposal writing.

You'll discover that many of the older posts on this site are about building your confidence as a grantseeker. If you need help with grants development, this compilation of top resources on how to create proposals that get funded is for you! 

If your work includes grants development, also check out what Jo Miller, Heather Stombaugh and Diane Leonard have to say! They are three of my favorite voices within the awesome community of grants professionals.

What motivates me: your happiness! 

My blog posts are a letter to you. They're about hacking your work habits and giving you new inspiration to get you to the life you want to lead. 

Here are some quotes that inspire me -- they encapsulate my goals for this website.  

Friendship is born at the moment that one man says to another: What! You too? I thought no one but myself. -- C.S. Lewis

If you want to be successful, help others reach their dreams. -- Zig Zigler 

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.  -- Maya Angelou    

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. -- Oscar Wilde 

If you tell the truth, you won't have to remember anything. -- Mark Twain

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. -- Mae West  

Peace and love!
