No matter what your holiday is (or isn’t), things do slow down this time of year — which is a nice change from the increasingly hectic path most people’s lives seem to be taking. One of wonderful things I find about that “white space,” is that it gives me time to vision, plan and dream. If I make sure to punctuate my year with enough of these spaces (still working on that), then I’m fueled and focused during those more hectic times.
Today I want to share with you three free Getting Attention guides published this year — on messaging that resonates, marketing wisdom from your peers and books that can lift and energize you.1) Nonprofit Tagline Database & Report — Get inspired by 4,800+ nonprofit taglines and the guide to making yours great.
