Inspirational Fundraising Success Story

If you’re an unproven leader trying to raise money and you hear about already successful people struggling as well, you might react: “If they are having trouble, how will I do it?”  That’s true.  But I actually think it’s a bit liberating to hear these stories.

I think it’s a reminder that raising money for leaders of all levels is really hard; that even proven people are told no and have to show grit; in other words, you’re not alone and it’s not just you — it’s a grind for everyone.

Just read one inspirational example of two proven Hollywood writers/directors — struggling, being told no, but staying true to their vision and eventually finding success.

(Hat tip to Ted’s Take for highlighting this great story)
