Fundraising sucks! There, I said it, I got it out of the way! As I write this I’m feeling pretty defeated. I just got off of a team meeting via video chat and although I’m usually the one that has to rally the troops, tonight I felt very un-inspirational. I didn’t have the ra-ra speech at the end to tell the team keep their head up, “we’ll get the money!” Or, “don’t worry, we have plenty of time!” I just didn’t have it in me. Not because I’ve lost all hope. We’re not even half way done yet so throwing in the towel is a little pre-mature, I’m in touch enough to realize that. No, I just didn’t have it in me TONIGHT! I’m tired, I want to stop for just a moment and gain some perspective.
What’s the perspective?
Maybe it’s that people really still do believe in a great story. Maybe it’s that people love a comeback story as well and people are waiting to see what happens. Well, whatever the perspective, it need not change what we’re trying to do!
