How do you educate and inspire a community when the solution doesn’t produce immediate results?  This week Keisha Jordan shares how she keeps her team, her community, and her stakeholders passionate about children’s education while providing funds and opportunities for future success. Listen in as Laura and Keisha discuss the complexities of raising long-term funds for children’s education and what it takes to establish trust and build a team of passionate people over time.


Here are a few things you’ll learn during this conversation:

  • How to build credibility with a new group of people
  • The challenges of raising long-term funding
  • Understanding the impact your mission has on the community
  • Overcoming false barriers through communication and relationship building
  • What it means to manage sideways and how to support your team’s passion


During the 24-Hour Challenge, Keisha encourages you to research an issue you are passionate about and volunteer with a local organization to make a difference in your area.
