Romancing the Moves (Management)
I hear from many MGOs who tell me how difficult "moves management" is for them because it's too much work and sometimes they just don't see the relationship with a donor go anywhere. Sometimes the MGO is trying and trying, and nothing seems to happen.
Well, you know what? Relationships are hard work.It takes an enormous amount of effort, discipline and grace ... yes, grace. But, just like your relationship with your significant other, for your donors ... it's worth it!
With that hard work and discipline comes joy and fulfillment — for you and for your donors.
