“The next time you are tempted to run to someone else to get you out of some trouble, say to yourself, I can solve this problem myself. If I try to dodge, I am only fooling myself. I will solve it. Then go ahead and solve it. Then you have set your feet upon the path of success.” Dale Carnegie

1-Hour Working Session
Do you want to Zoom with Dave for an hour to understand how you can leverage grants? It’s easy. You can book a time using his online calendar.
“I signed up for the 1-hour working session with David. I was blown away by how many grants he found for my business, as well his grant knowledge. Prior to this meeting, I was relatively new to the grant space. He showed me everything from how governments work, where to find grants, how to successfully approach grant agencies, and tips on writing great applications. I learn a lot and it was definitely great value. Thank you David!”
