Boundaries and Focus: The Frustrating Path Toward Success
Here's the thing: We need this. We need it in all of our relationships. Because, as we have said many times before in this blog, we can't do all of this (work and life) alone. We need the wisdom, truth and experiences of others.
A wise philosopher once said, "There is wisdom in counsel." And it's true.
So when someone in your life — whether it's your boss, colleague, spouse, friend, significant other — when someone wants to speak truth into your life, run toward it and embrace it! It is a gift, not a constraint. It will help you, not hurt you. It will make you better.

If you’re hanging with Richard it won’t be long before you’ll be laughing.
He always finds something funny in everything. But when the conversation is about people, their money and giving, you’ll find a deeply caring counselor who helps donors fulfill their passions and interests. Richard believes that successful major-gift fundraising is not fundamentally about securing revenue for good causes. Instead it is about helping donors express who they are through their giving. The Connections blog will provide practical information on how to do this successfully. Richard has more than 30 years of nonprofit leadership and fundraising experience, and is founding partner of the Veritus Group.
