The Beginning of a New Era

I thoroughly enjoyed the workbook layout, as well as Holly’s writing/teaching style. I felt like I had found exactly what I needed. I learned so much from the book and then found Holly online, and now I’m learning to write better proposals *and* better position myself as a freelance nonprofit consultant.
