As a former small shop Executive Director, Rachel Bearbower of Small Shop Strategies understands how tough it is to do everything on your own. The stress, frustration and being underfunded can be overwhelming. How can we set boundaries and banish burnout in our jobs and in our personal lives?

In this episode, we discuss:

  •  Rachel’s ideas for building resilience in our organizations and in ourselves, especially after the collective trauma we all experienced (the pandemic)
  • The 4 things most successful nonprofit organizations and successful EDs have in common
  • Some of her favorite time-saving tips – how to work smarter and not harder
  • Her best advice for small shop fundraisers and EDs trying to make it all work

Rachel is the founder and CEO of Small Shop Strategies, a nonprofit consultancy focused on teaching Executive Directors how to detangle their systems, so they can focus their time + energy on building relationships and raising more for their causes.

In just the last 3 years, Rachel has built a community where over a hundred Executive Directors are showing up for themselves and learning how to boldly fundraise, tell better stories and become even more impactful changemakers.
