100 Golden Grant Rules
After many years in grants, I kept a diary of my best grant-winning tips. The list of tips came from conversations with grant staff at conferences, “grant traps” that I hope to never step in again, as well as experiences working with entrepreneurs. Last November I took five weeks off and put them into a new book: The Ultimate Guide for Winning Government Grants: 100 Golden Grant Rules.
My hope is that some entrepreneur or executive director working at a non-profit can read this book and have hope. All kinds of government grants exist. With a little education, you can make a big difference in this world.
I’ve seen it happen for many of my clients. Heck, even my sister’s non-profit has won nearly $700,000 in grants.
You can win grants too.
