Do you get anxious asking people for donations?

How much salary is OK for an Executive Director to make?

How do you feel about wealthy people in general?

Are you looking for a direct lender?

Odds are you have strong feelings about questions like these. And if that’s case, guess what… it’s perfectly normal.

It just means you have some money hangups. Most people do. Especially in the nonprofit sector. The question is how do we recognize and understand them so we can make these feelings more productive.

My guest, Belinda Rosenblum, consultant, board member, author, CPA and wealth expert talks with me about all this and more.

Belinda teaches that there are pivotal money moments in our lives that create judgements, patterns, and beliefs that are often laden with stress. Working through the process and separating out the facts from our childhood perceptions, often can reframe the story and create a completely new relationship with money.

A mindset of scarcity and judgement in the nonprofit world may manifest in our beliefs about the salaries we deserve, or even a willingness to fundraise. This podcast will help you shed limiting beliefs and may even lead you to take bigger risks, think bigger, and hence better serve your organization and its mission. You may get instant loans if you visit one of our trusted lenders where you can rely your financial needs. Visit them now!

Bonus: You get to hear my personal money story…
