Dr. Bev Browning, VP – Grants Professional Services, gets USA Today coverage in digital version – 12/5/2012 – eCivis is mentioned (900 Gannett newspapers are picking this up)
Perfect Phrases for Fundraising with Dr. Beverly Browning 08/22 by Marketing talk for Higher Education | Blog Talk Radio
No, this is not a commercial for eCivis. :>) Many of you know that I’ve been on my own as a grant writing consultant for nearly four decades. In fact, even today, I still artfully balance my full-time gig with eCivis (VP of Grants Professional Services) in addition to continuing to work as the CEO for BBA, Inc. dba Bev Browning & Associates (bevbrowning.com) and direct the Grant Writing Training Foundation (grantwritingbootcamp.us). I continue to love nonprofit capacity building consulting; for-profit advisory positions, and of course, training, training, and more training!
Why did I say yes to eCivis when they called me? I was bored! I need a constant mental challenge or I’m likely to move on rather quickly to a new pursuit or project or client. Point to ponder: I will not live at the same address for longer than 7 years. Simply must move on for new experiences, new neighbors, new communities, and high-oxygen thinking paradigms!
Am I glad that I said yes to eCivis? YES! 1000 times over—YES!
What’s in this relationship for Dr. Bev? CREATIVE ABILITY: If I can “think it up”, I can “do it now”. There are not many employers that allow for this type of instant implementation. NATIONAL CONNECTIVITY: I have unlimited branding potential and daily networking opportunities with many of you and other members of the Grants Professional Services independent contractor database. RESPECT: I love that my eCivis family is like a real family. We listen, care, share, coach, mentor, laugh, and connect daily.
Many of you are thinking that my decision to join eCivis was about the Benjamin’s. Not so! I have made more $ doing less for the past 40 years. eCivis was meant to be a part-time gig. That’s funny! I work at least 60 hours per week over a 7-day timeline. I do so by choice. Why? 1) After years of not investigating what eCivis has to offer its clients, I finally received access to our massive cloud-based Grants Network system. After exploring and using our Research, KnowledgeBase, and Tracking & Reporting tools multiple times, I was sold on the fact that WE are indeed a 360 degree grant solutions company! 2) Also, I am helping someone else build a corporation and I like the thrill of upper-level entrepreneurial involvement.
If you decide to attend my GPA pre-conference workshop for grant writing consultants, I hope that I can pass on some enthusiasm (about starting and growing your business), curiosity (about eCivis), and hope (inspiration sprinkled with miracles).
