How would you like to go from ideas on paper to launching your own beautiful, professional website WITHOUT hiring a freelancer?

No prior knowledge & no techie skills needed.
Tell me if any of this resonates with you…
You’ve tried watching videos on YouTube to learn how to build a WordPress website, but you feel like you’re getting nowhere
You may have invested in a Kindle book, Udemy course, or other resource for learning WordPress website creation, but these resources were too long, too confusing, and/or didn’t really give a clear step by step plan (adding to your frustration)
You’ve given other website builders a try (such as Wix or Weebly) but keep getting stuck and/or could use some extra guidance on what goes into making your own professional website
You are NOT tech savvy and don’t like the idea of dealing with any code
You feel lost, overwhelmed, and/or don’t even know where to begin
If you said “yes” to any of the above, then you’re in the right place!
It seems everyone is telling you to share stories.
That’s the magic fix for all your fundraising challenges. Right? Actually, no.
The truth is our storytelling has gotten lazy. We put a picture on a page, share a few facts about the person in the picture, and call it a story. That’s not enough to get people to take action.
Storytelling is both an art and a science. When well done, sharing a story about your impact can be one of your most powerful communication tools.
This session is about how you can transform basic, boring stories into brilliant, action-causing examples of your work. There is a secret weapon to story sharing that will be shared in this Advanced Storytelling session.
Join Lori L. Jacobwith, master storyteller and fundraising culture change expert for a session that will teach you how to make changes in your communication that will have long-lasting effects.

BONUS: Real Case Studies of how people moved on up in their careers
It’s hard to find useful nonprofit career advice. Many people just say “Stick with it! You’ll be rewarded!” But according to the Bridgespan Group, most nonprofit staff are NOT being groomed for leadership, and only 33% of the time do people from inside the nonprofit even attempt to fill senior leadership level positions. That means most of the time, you will have to make a leap to another nonprofit to move on up. But once you’re in your new role, how do you succeed?
