The co-founders of She's the First show readers how to devise a long-term, sustainable plan to make real and lasting change in the world.
Everyone wants to create meaningful change, but most people aren't sure where to start or where to find a roadmap to guide them. Why is it that we have career coaches, therapists, and financial advisers for all of life's big decisions-but no Impact Advisors for our legacy?
, two Impact Advisors who have built a successful nonprofit from the ground-up show how anyone, anywhere can make reasonable adjustments to their lives to support the world they want to see, and live lives they'll be proud of fifty years from now. This book teaches you how to:
Identify the issue(s) that light you up and motivate you toward change ("Finding your North Star")Decide where to put your energy and resources and learn how to stick with it ("Craft Your Impact Plan")Design a network to support your goals ("Create an Impact Advisory Board")Build resilience and grit ("Make Plans to Keep Going")
Whether it means changing careers, ramping up volunteer service, or putting dollars to work more effectively, Impact is going to walk you through the everyday steps you must take to lead to transformative change.
If you've ever felt too overwhelmed to make a difference, or just unsure of how to apply your unique skills to a bigger purpose, this book is ready to unlock your potential.
When you feel that pull to be part of social change, where do you start? How can you ensure that your good intentions create a positive impact? How do you focus your scattered efforts? And how do you sustain yourself throughout?
Impact brings you the answers. Drawing on their network and experience as founders of She's the First, Christen Brandt and Tammy Tibbetts show you how to create your own impact strategy, one that fits into your life and allows you to match what you have with what the world needs.
Their guidance, paired with interactive activities, will lead you to identify your North Star, find the right partners, and plug into movements for long-term, systemic change. Equally important, you'll learn how to address biases, practice allyship, and shift power to become more inclusive and effective in your journey.
