    #136-5 Steps Towards Being Comfortable as the Face of an Organization with Jeany Park

    #136-5 Steps Towards Being Comfortable as the Face of an Organization with Jeany Park

    I'm the first to admit it--I HATE seeing my face on video.  As the face of an organization or company, our jobs might include being the public face, but many of us don't like it.  Join me and Jeany Park, actress turned video producer, to talk about how to come across your best in video.  We discuss why it's important to have a video strategy, how to improve your video presence and other tips to look your best (and give yourself some grace).  Also, we coined a new phrase: RDF.  Listen in to find out what that is!

    #135-Fundraising for 501c4s with Steven Choi

    #135-Fundraising for 501c4s with Steven Choi

    For a career 501c3 ED such as myself, I thought of 501c4s as a mystifying entity.  I thought, they're like us...but different.  In this conversation with veteran nonprofiteer, Steven Choi, he pulls back the curtain on the differences between the two from a fundraising and policy perspective.  If you've ever considered a 501c4 arm of your current nonprofit, this is a valuable episode.  We talk about how to fundraising differs, how 501c4s can be effective in politics and with elected officials and how to set it up alongside a 501c3.
