fundraising mistakes to avoidRecently, I was honored to be a guest on the Another Way Podcast with Pete Wilson.

We spent a time on my favorite topic: How joy can be a part of raising money.

But we spent time the most time talking about a topic you’ll want to listen to: Three Fundraising Mistakes to Avoid.

What are the three mistakes?

1. Setting fundraising goals based on what you think you can raise rather than on what you actually need.

2. Approaching fundraising with utilitarian (code for boring!) language.

3. Unwillingness to embrace change in your fundraising methods.

Take a listen to the whole episode to hear what Pete and I had to say so you can avoid having these mistakes become barriers to your fundraising.


Raising money is all about building relationships. And building relationships is all about using inspiring and engaging language. The Complete Storytelling System provides you everything needed to have the confidence and skills to find, craft, and share engaging stories that generate $50,000, $100,000, and even $1 million gifts.
