A Holiday Fundraising Pro Tip + Fundraising Fieldnotes - 12.17.21
A Holiday Fundraising Pro Tip
Hey - it’s Jason Yeh 🕺🏻
I’ve got a great essay on the topic of what to do during the holidays but guess what, I’m also doing a live webinar on it to go deeper.
For founders navigating the holiday slow-down:
Join me on Wednesday 12/22 for tactical fundraising advice and ramp up for a spectacular Q1 raise!
With the end of the year approaching, a lot of founders are reaching out to me via email, blog comments, social media, etc. There's a lot of anxiety around ongoing raises that are not doing well. There's pressure to prepare and decide whether or not to launch a raise right now. And, there's pressure to prepare for raises in 2022.
On top of all that, there's life. The end of the year is a holiday season and for most people, a joyous time. Unfortunately, the responsibilities of running a business don’t pause because Santa is coming to town. Between landing fundraises and closing out Q4 sales, the end of the year can be a pressure-packed time.
With all those professional responsibilities, the whole “life” thing can easily take a back seat. Around this time of year, I try to balance my fundraising advice with advice that applies to family life, overall health, and relationships. That's why I'm excited to share this holiday pro tip! It's fundraising-related but combined with guidance that is helpful in any situation, not just in a professional context.
