On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Today’s guest has been called “the Johnny Appleseed of fundraising” since the only thing he loves more than asking for money is teaching people to ask for money! Over the past 16 years, his organizational and leadership coaching and trainings have helped tens of thousands of nonprofits advance their missions, meet revenue goals, and improve the lives of their staff and supporters. He is the founder of The Concord Leadership Group and of FundraisingCoach.com.

Currently, he is the executive director of TheNonprofitAcademy.com and an Advisory Panel member of Rogare, a prestigious international fundraising think tank. He is the author of several books on fundraising, including “Ask Without Fear!®” a step-by-step guide on how to build authentic relationships with your donors. His expertise and enthusiasm engages audiences around the world and has caught the attention of media organizations as diverse as Al Jazeera, SUCCESS Magazine, and Fox News.

Please join me in welcoming Marc A. Pitman.

In this episode we explore:

  • his thoughts on leadership “Influence has always been a big part of my understanding of leadership.”
  • how his parents included him as they learned about leadership and selling as an Amway family – encouraging him to read Dale Carnegie and Frank Bettger classics – and the influence that has had on how he educates his children.
  • his framework for leadership: Observe – Experiment – Analyze – Focus “People often get stuck in the experimenting and analyzing stage, not feeling confident enough to say ‘That doesn’t work for me.’”
  • hardships don’t disqualify you as a leader – leadership is forged in the hottest fire.
  • how he intentionally sends thank you notes to rock stars in his field AND his wife – which is his most important relationship that he needs to nurture.
