Let me help you raise $ for the cause you love

Want to raise more $ for a cause you love? I will be co-hosting a 3-part philanthropy workshop beginning on Thursday, October 1st for nonprofit professionals and board members.  I’ve secured donations from $20 to $2+ million and I’m excited to share my REAL life fundraising experiences with you (the good, the bad and the ugly). This is also a great series for any company that would like to establish a philanthropic program. Let’s get started! Register here.

A picture is worth a thousand…. dollars?

You’ve heard that a picture is worth a thousand words. It’s true. But have you thought that it could also be worth a thousand dollars (or more), provide you with media opportunities, robust social media exposure, and speaking invitations? You need a professional headshot (no selfies allowed). Your photo matters on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. So it’s important to update it regularly, and keep it fresh and modern. Work with a photographer who you know will help you shine by putting your best self forward. I recommend wearing something timeless and classic that makes you feel great. You’ll be prepared when that media opportunity comes knocking.

Here are fifteen (15) beautiful headshots of Femfessionals members. We partnered with Little Nest Portraits in Wayne, PA. Makeup by Béke Beau and styling/accessories by Nicole Walsh, Stella and Dot stylist. A stellar team!

Drop me a note and tell me how you make your personality shine in your headshot. I’d love to hear from you!

New philanthropy initiative in 2015

I’m proud to announce our 2015 @Femfessionals Philadelphia philanthropy initiative is to benefit Home of the Sparrow which provides a plethora of services to help women become self-sufficient. The news was officially announced at our January 09 Connection Luncheon, our first gathering of the year. Special thanks to our Philanthropy Initiative Co-chairs Joanne Beltz and Lee Ann Embrey for making this possible. Photos by Carrie Hill Photography.
