I HEAR YOU
If you are still struggling with the decision to get in on the free grant money game?
Have you taken courageous actions toward getting funded so you can move your career or non-profit to the next level through gaining access to grant money?
Are you ready to get off the sidelines and get in there and get funded?
Well, here’s my story of how ow accessing extra capital through attracting and wring grants changed my life and career in unexpected ways.
More than ten years ago, I was working as a researcher in prominent non-profits in Washington, DC. My jobs were fantastic, my co-workers were amazing, and things were going exceptionally well.
But, I was suffocating because I wasn’t doing what I was put here to do! Do you know how that feels?
I knew I was meant for more. And I bet you feel the same way.
So, after my 3rd son was born, I wanted to leave my job and become a stay at home mom! What? I had a Ph.D., a small coaching practice, a husband with an unstable job history due to mental illness, people who loved and depended on me. I wanted to walk away from my good job and stay home and take care of my infant… for three years. To say that I was terrified was an understatement! Here is what happened next:
✅ Left my 6 – figure job
✅ Started buying, renting, and flipping houses for the next three years
✅ Bought my first three houses with no money down
✅ Introduced travel to my life in a way that was not possible before
✅ Generated more than a million in homes, land, and cash
✅ Became the sole breadwinner off and on for a while– my husband was not into the real estate game like I was.
✅ Got bored at home when my son started pre-school
✅ Went back to work as a researcher (after 3- years)
✅ Quit after a year and a half because I wanted more inspiring work then,
✅ Got a dream job in higher education
✅ Found that my dream job came without a dream budget
⏩ Started writing grants
⏩ Landed 1st grant 85K
⏩ Landed 2nd grant 300K
⏩ Landed 3rd grant 900K
⏩ Got more than 5 Million in 4 years
⏩ Got promoted, and many opportunities and job offers because of my track record
⏩ Was given loads of freedom at work because I could deliver, including time off to write more
Why am I sharing this? Not to brag, but to show you what is possible for you!
If you’re in higher education student affairs and are looking for a way to shake some things up but need a little help, I got you.
That’s my sweet spot.
However, if you work in the non-profit world, the work may be very similar; after all, this is a blueprint system that anyone can follow to submit a winning proposal.
I have also been awarded state agency and foundation funding. How would you like for this to be a part of your story? It could.
Aren’t you tired of money being an issue for your or your team? That’s why I love heart-centered professionals. They want to help. I want to help!
I don’t promise get-rich-quick schemes. I’ve seen my share of that in real-estate. That’s not my thing.
How would it feel….
If you could find all the Grants you wanted to apply for and have a great chance of getting them approved. You could begin your projects and help the people you need to help in no time.
Here’s what you will discover:
|How to find A Grant that is competitive for where you are right now, even if you don’t know where to start.||How to get a winning team in place ( and how to determine if you need one) you don’t always need one. (hint, sometimes working solo works just fine)|
|How to work with Foundations and small agencies who give grants ( the approach to them is different from the feds)||How to use one proposal to go after multiple grants at the same time (hint, understand how funders view it when you submit to multiple entities)|
|How to create a task sheet that is going to make your job much easier and keep you and the entire team on track ( I will give you mine) I started from zero, so you don’t have to!)||The one biggest misconception about what you need to write a grant and what you need instead.|
Testimonial: The work that I have been able to accomplish with Sislena will have a lasting impact on my personal and professional life. She offers a personalized, common sense approach with a strong dose of accountability and action. All of this with a deep respect of who you are, how you are, and where you want to be. I am infinitely grateful for the opportunity to work with her.”
Here is what I can promise:
- A clear pathway to understanding the proposal writing process so that you know precisely what you need to find and complete a proposal.
- A blueprint that you can use every time that has an 85% success rate
- How to get your team in place even if they have no experience, which will make life SO MUCH easier for you
- A one-sheet task-sheet that will be the proposal guidepost that will keep you and everyone on task
- A walk through a proposal process that will never take you five weeks again if you follow my blueprint.
If you are still confused or overwhelmed about where to start, that is normal.
Thankfully, I have learned some things that I think will help you.
If you’re anything like I was, here’s what I bet your brain is doing?
➡️ I don’t know where to start.
➡️ I don’t have the time to do the work or writing. Well, maybe not right now.
➡️ I do not understand what I need or who I need.
➡️ Can she help me? I’m not in higher ED Yes.
➡️ It won’t make a difference because I won’t get a cut of the money if I write it for my company (NOT TRUE, you get paid in other huge ways).
You already know that not only will you benefit, but there are people right now who would benefit from the money that you generate, including YOU. It’s a numbers game. You have to be in it to win it. That’s is just the way it’s done. And getting this process down could be a game-changer in your career or life?
This could happen!
(psst—*I* know that for a fact. )
Just commit to getting one done, no matter how small. Going for the small grants like 5K and 10K gives the funder’s confidence that they can trust you with the big dollars!
