Ep. 139: $2 Million Secured in Grant Funding & 25+ Clients in 3 Years

Navigating the road of freelance grant writing can feel lonely and overwhelming at times.

That’s why I was so excited when Tawanda Ellis reached out to me via a mutual friend, Dr. Beverly Browning. I was inspired to hear about Tawanda’s roadmap and success as a freelancer. Honestly, the people who follow a roadmap normally do end up in the same place of success as Tawanda. But the type of person who commits to this is few and far between.

That’s why I get so excited when talking to other freelance grant writers who have built a business out of their house and from their talents.

This lady has done precisely that, and I know you will be just as encouraged and inspired as I was!

Plus, you can download Tawanda’s downloadable, the “Write it Out Method.”

In this podcast and YouTube episode, we discuss:

  • How Tawanda got 25+ clients in less than 3 years with only word-of-mouth advertising
  • How she secured $2.8 million in grant funding
  • How she helps nonprofits come up with strategies
  • Why she started an additional business: MirrorMom360
  • The reasoning behind her business names
  • The reflection time
  • The ‘Write It Out’ Method
