SETTING YOURSELF FOR A WIN IN LIFE Even In Recession
Today is your day!
This course will help you become completely obsessed with setting yourself up to win every time – even during recession! Setting yourself up for a win means that you always take the time to prepare the ground, create the environment, do your homework, make the call, whatever it takes to guarantee you win at your given task, and accomplish your goals. Do you always make sure your workout clothing is on the dresser before you got to bed? How about confirming tomorrow’s appointments with a quick text today? Have you automated your repeated tasks or better, have you even identified what tasks you should put on autopilot? Life gets in the way for everybody. I can promise that today, no matter how well-meaning you may be, something or someone is going to reduce your chances of winning YOUR game.

GRANT Writing 101
How to find funding for your non-profit or for-profit
Grants can be a supporting key step from an idea to development, marketing, and finally to business. However, good proposals hold good writing backed up that includes careful planning, deep research and outreach.
This course will outline a step-by-step process in the search for grant. But remember that it takes time to succeed. After writing a proposal, it could take as long as a year to hear back if you will receive the requested funds to start your plan. Even well written proposals are often rejected at any time for any number of reasons.
Professional grant writers use clear and precise words to grab the reader’s attention, and to encourage the reader to fund their proposal. Learning to write successful grant proposals is not an easy task, but it can become easier with practice and awareness of a few common missteps. As a grant writer, your specific job is to seek out grant opportunities, and to write a proposal specifically aimed at the grant.
The grant writer will likely work on a per-project basis; although there are instances when an organization will hire a grant writer that will work regularly.
This work includes consistently seeking out grant opportunities (known as campaigns). No doubt, the first step of successful grant writing is to plan the project, but the second step is following the directions of the granting organization (called, the grantmaker). In most cases, grantmakers require cover letter, executive summary, problem statements/need description, work schedule, budget, qualifications, conclusions, and appendices or supporting materials. Each section has some specific requirements and one must take care of word limit. One must carefully read through the grant application and strictly follow their information and format requirements.
