    How to increase capacity as a nonprofit coach: Mandy Pearce

    How to increase capacity as a nonprofit coach: Mandy Pearce

    Are you enthusiastic about starting and expanding businesses? Working as a consultant, strategy planning, and board development are all possibilities for you. Is there a distinction between coaching and consulting? Mandy Pearce joins us to discuss her job as a consultant as well as a coach.
     
    Remarkable Quotes
    Mandy: Consultants are going to share with you what to do and maybe guide you through the steps of learning how to do it. Coaches are going to just teach you how to do it
    Travis: People realize the value of remote work and now because of the huge shift worldwide, it's much more acceptable to be and conduct remote work which is very beneficial to the way I want to live my life. 
    Mandy: we're also getting paid for our time when we do it and that has become my way of saying my ideal client is not the 15-minute person that wants to pick my brain for free. 
    Travis: Whatever it is that you've always done this way, chances are it got outdated years ago.
     
    Mandy Pearce bio
