Hard work isn’t magic, but hard work can create magic. If you believe in that sort of thing…

I do. I believe that if you follow a recipe you can create magic. If that recipe is focused on an organization that does good…then you can create nonprofit magic. 

I have built my career on turning organizations around. I have worked throughout many communities and organizations and I have taken many struggling operations to new heights. I have never done it alone, but I have always followed a recipe to build the right formula of staff and volunteers. When those two things come together and the staff and volunteers move in the same direction the organization can go to new heights.

Is it truly magic, no. But when it happens it is special and it feels like magic.
