    Little Things Everyone Can Do To Make A Big Impact In The World:
    Interview with Amy & Scott Malin
    One of the main reasons donors lapse is poor communication from the non-profit and a lack of meaningful ways to engage donors and get them excited about their mission. Most people experience donor burn-out from being bombarded with messages about the world’s biggest problems that need fixing. As a society, we’ve become desensitized when we see suffering around us. That is why we’re big believers in making your donors the hero of the story, and showcasing the measurable impact that is created when people come together to support your cause. Part of the secret to retaining donors and increasing their financial commitment is sharing the success stories of how your non-profit is making an impact in your community.

    Leader Effectiveness: Closing The Confidence Gap

    Leader Effectiveness: Closing The Confidence Gap

    Leader Effectiveness: Closing The Confidence Gap Interview with Robbie Walls
    Today, there is a particular crisis for women—a vast confidence gap that separates the sexes. Compared with men, women don’t consider themselves as ready for promotions, they predict they’ll do worse on tests, and they generally underestimate their abilities across the board. A growing body of evidence shows just how devastating this lack of confidence can be. In fact, it turns out that confidence predicts success much more than competence. No wonder that women, despite all our progress, are still woefully underrepresented at the highest levels. Overqualified and overprepared, too many women still hold back on seeking opportunities. Women feel confident only when they are perfect. Or practically perfect. The good news is that with work, confidence can be acquired. This means that the confidence gap, in turn, can be closed.

    Discovering the Value of Including Persons with Disabilities with Your Overall Inclusion Efforts

    Discovering the Value of Including Persons with Disabilities with Your Overall Inclusion Efforts

    Discovering the Value of Including Persons with Disabilities with Your Overall Inclusion Efforts Interview with Daniel Hodges
    Creating access is usually a much simpler process than we imaging subtle changes make a world of difference. Access and inclusion are catalysts for innovation that benefit everyone. No viewing people with disabilities as people to serve, but also including them in nonprofit leadership.
    Questions to be addressed in this interview:

    What is a disability and how many people have it?

    How do access and inclusion benefit everyone?

    How difficult is it be inclusive and to create access?

    What’s the difference between access and accommodation?


    Daniel Hodges has spent his entire life learning to thrive in a body that some consider to be deeply flawed. As someone who was born blind, and with a connective tissue disorder, I am well-acquainted with the low expectations encountered by those with disabilities. These experiences have ignited a fire in me to help create a world in which everyone is afforded the opportunity to reach their potential without the barriers that hold so many of us back. In 2018, I entered the University of Baltimore School of Law, with aspirations of practicing at the intersection of healthcare and civil rights law. My involvement in Peaces of Me is an outgrowth of these efforts. Our collective passion for advocacy and furtherance of equity and inclusion runs deep. I am blessed and honored to be part of this amazing team.

    Interview with Marketing Specialist, Chris Barlow

    Chris Barlow grew up imagining he'd work in a cause-focused career, ministry, or mission. To his surprise, after just "getting a job" after college, he discovered he loved business. After many years in corporate sales, he realized that while he loved it, it wasn't going to be what he could or wanted to do until retirement.
    So he founded Beeline in 2015 and volunteered with a local nonprofit to help them with their marketing, just to get some experience under his belt.
    Little did he realize that this would eventually lead him full circle, as his company now focuses exclusively on helping nonprofits.
    Chris is the Customer Happiness Director, and they exist to help nonprofits reach more people through marketing that serves.
