Are you working hard but not raising much money?
Amy Eisenstein was working for a battered woman’s organization and found herself in that situation… she was working hard but not bringing in as many donations as she thought she could.
She discovered two strategies or “tools” that she thought would help her. And guess what? They did.
Watch the video below where Amy tells you about them, and how you can implement them.

These are two very realistic strategies I know I can apply. Thanks so much for the honesty and for sharing.

Love Brian Tracy books and still learning how to ask. Great info, thanks!

Thank you Amy. You are so right.

Great video and advice from Amy, thank you!
It made me think of a visual tool my AFP mentor shared with me. She placed a bowl on her desk and filled it with 100 marbles – each marble representing a call to a donor that week. Each time she made a call, she moved a marble into another bowl. She said the visual representation of having 10 or 15 marbles left on a Friday at the end of a long week, helped her push through to make those important calls. It also became a good talking point to board members who came to her office – where “losing your marbles” was actually a good thing. 🙂

Awesome concept. The frog and the marbles. Thanks

What a great video! I’ve found these two strategies to be really helpful in my own work, too. The accountability makes such a difference whether you are a one-person fundraising office or a large team. Thanks, Amy, for sharing!
Super! I needed this! I have been putting off the asking calls for a few weeks while doing all of the other tasks. I was doing much better when I took one morning a week to make the “cold calls” and then spent time following up.
