From Cancer to Consulting

My Why

You have cancer.  Oh, but there is more.  Having always been an overachiever, I had not one cancer but two – Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma.  Yep, I did not know you could get two cancers at the same time either!   It’s even rarer to get the two I had.  I am a part of the lucky 1%!  Like most people, you start examining your lifestyle – obesity, stress levels, food etc… My husband was convinced it was the stress of the job. So, on one of my weak days, he made me promise to retire.  Since that day, I love what I do, I love what I do, has been on loop in my head.  I cannot imagine not getting up daily to make the world a better place through my work.  Plus, I have so much knowledge in my head that can help others. Hence, the brainchild Supporting World Hope was developed.  What if I could help fill in the gap for those small to mid-size nonprofits who do not have access to a National office?

Having been a CEO of a nonprofit for the last 15 years and working through the ranks from program delivery to operations I experienced all levels of what it takes to run a great nonprofit.  I swear on one day I went from cleaning a toilet to being flown in a private plane to visit the board of a major foundation.  It’s all in a day’s work, right? And yes, we received the grant from the foundation. I digress, because of this experience I believe that if you focus on supporting the CEOs & the Board of Directors and developing the program staff organizations can stay razor-sharp on their mission. Thus, changing the world and giving people hope.   Hence the name Supporting World Hope!

I’m a cancer survivor who promised her husband to take it slow, but I have a passion for nonprofit work so what better way to show my knowledge than to write about it in my blog.

Starting May 2, 2019, every Thursday I will post a blog on various nonprofit topics.

Let me know your thoughts and what you would like to hear more about.

If you are a CEO or ED of a nonprofit organization and want to learn from me and others join the Supporting World Hope Facebook Group.
