Learning takes time, energy and resolve. Don't give up. Checking out what I am learning in Dave's Diary 10.24.17
“I do want to take this moment to tell you why I was on your site today. I was so impressed with your presentation at MCN and learned a ton that made me feel empowered, as a nonprofit of one, to figure out how to find a place on my hatrack for focused and intentional fundraising. I am not a natural fundraiser - not in the least - but now feel like I have the beginnings of a toolkit to get some good work done. All of your insight and wisdom was concrete, strong, and scalable - thank you again for sharing your work with so many. I know it will, and has already, made a big difference in my work.” Brian Voerding from Engage Winona, Winona MN

If you are a new nonprofit leader or nonprofit leader new to an organization, you can relate to the amount of work it takes to learn all you need about the ins and outs of your nonprofit. Hang in there, it gets easier and better. (great reminder for me too).
