Seen and Heard
Recently I have been working on learning how to write grants. I want to be able to fund a huge project which will make a big difference in our community. It is a teaching project and the Challenge has won several very prestigious awards for its vision and its scope. I need to be seen by a large number of people and even more importantly – Heard.
Since I have a wealth of rejection experiences to draw from, I have gained a profound amount of skill, which I believe will serve me well. I am determined to succeed in my efforts and have been working on this challenge for 3 years already.
I have to believe that this project will make a worthwhile difference and it is wonderful to be inspired by others who have already taken on the challenge and can share their knowledge. We know that the current election candidates will make a huge difference to our efforts; one will embrace and one will force us back underground in our efforts (though both will be front and center to take the credit if we succeed).
I am not surprised by the number of people who cannot hear me because I am talking about something fairly new and they need a more specific rendering to comprehend. I am still amazed at the number of people who cannot see me because I am a woman doing this work; I do not have the correct training or education to be taking on this Challenge and this causes a great many individuals and groups to close down and turn off.
Sometimes when one is in need, just the right support comes along… Pat made a comment on a blog post and linked me to a great song by Josh Groban. I have been starting my day playing this video and I thought you might enjoy and be inspired by this music too. So here is the link: YouTube
Do you have a theme song for your projects and efforts?
If you purchase anything from this site from Amazon or Powell’s I will receive a few beans in my bucket! Thank you.
