Wine on One- Social Media and Work-Life Integration

July 11, 2017

Friending volunteers... at mentioning board members on Twitter... LinkingIn with staff... attending networking events three evenings a week... dinner with a colleague from another organization. 

Forget work-life balance, for those of us that live the nonprofit life, work-life integration is where we're trending.    

How do you use your social media presence in a way that promotes your personal brand, enhances your organization, and lets your authentic voice be heard to those who you want to hear it? How much social should be in your networking?  It's a complicated issue, so Marjorie and Natalie grabbed a bottle of wine to figure out some answers.

Wine on One- Partnering with Businesses to Raise Funds

July 6, 2017

What makes a good nonprofit/corporate partnership? How do you navigate around a company's needs and your nonprofit's needs? How do you get the most bang for your buck when it comes to days a company will give a part of their sales to your mission... and is it even about the money? 

Marjorie and Natalie grab a bottle of wine to discuss the fundraisers that work for some and not for other and dig into what really works for a long term partnership.

Wine on One- Office Furniture and the Nonprofit Life

June 20, 2017

When was the last time your nonprofit got new furniture... no, real new furniture, not a hand me down from your spouse's office or a well loved couch covered in animal hair... real new furniture. Should nonprofits spend donated dollars on furniture? Does looking poor help you raise more? What's the right balance. Marjorie and Natalie break it down in today's Wine on One.

Wine on One- Tragedies in Your Nonprofit Family

May 17, 2017

The death or critical illness of a volunteer, a board member, a donor, or a client can be so tough.  Relationships that start professonally in nature turn personal, and it's hard for the people outside of your nonprofit to understand just what the members of your extended nonprofit family mean to you.  

Marjorie and Natalie open a bottle of wine to talk about this tough topic and how they get through the hard times.

Wine on One- Onboarding New Staff Members

May 2, 2017

New staff often come in at a time where you've been short staffed for too long so you need them to get started FAST! But it's easy to forget the simple everyday things while getting them set up, like how to make a phone call (Dial 9, turn clockwise 7 times and howl before dialing the number.) 

Grab a glass of wine for some practical tips on how to start that new employee off on the right foot!
