Look After Yourself

Keep your energy up.  Don’t accept excuses from yourself and your team.  If you set out to raise funds, then raise funds.  If you make an agreement to do something – then do it.  Make sure that the fundraising team has bought into the idea early and are willing to give their energy and effort.  Too many fundraising efforts are really the work of 1 or 2 human-dynamos and a number of passengers.  The more actively useful people you can enrol in your fundraising efforts and the fewer passengers you have on the team to drag down your spirits and dilute efforts, the more successful you’ll be.
