Hi Reader,

Have you had a chance to go to the movies and see the Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour concert film?

Brett and I did last week, and let's just say we were left utterly mesmerized! 🀩❀️

Especially for fans who couldn't be at the live concert, this film feels like a heartfelt embrace from Taylor herself.

One moment in particularly really struck a chord: when Taylor stepped onto the stage in a t-shirt boldly declaring, "A LOT GOING ON AT THE MOMENT."

Sounds familiar? (Gulp πŸ™„)

If you're like Brett and me, this time of year can often feel like Tay-Tay's t-shirt message: heavy.

We're curious, are you feeling it too?

Feel free to hit "reply" and let us know.

During this hectic season, it can help to arm yourself with new resources and perhaps a nifty mindset upgrade to better survive the EOY onslaught.

So, for you, here are some . . .


Upcoming workshops, new blog posts, and short videos to boost your fundraising skills and mindset:
