Key Quotes:

  • “As a fundraiser, are we making the pie bigger, or is it a fixed pie? We only get our little slice, and that’s it. As folks who promote philanthropy, we want that pie to be as big as possible, for all nonprofits.” – Scott Niermann
  • “Mindset doesn’t mean you do the job. Mindset means you become a leader and cast a vision to get people to buy into that, and that’s huge.” – Jason Cass
  • “If we do enough of the right things, that’s when the magic happens and that’s true in business. Have to have the core processes down, then you can start to take off in the future. When you know you have to do A, to get to B, to hit the target of C, you can set those goals now.” – Scott Niermann
