Now more than ever it is important to get clear on what we need to do to continue to thrive in today’s conditions as a non-profit. The stakes are high, as we share the goal of continuing to serve those that need it the most. Marketing, funding, operational efficiency, and an ever growing list of new initiatives can at times seem overwhelming. 


To help, we’re launching a private mastermind community to help you workshop through the necessary changes and innovations so that you can continue to strengthen your non-profit and maximize your impact.

What Do You get with the Mastermind?

What people are saying about Lauren & Jean's Strategic Guidance:


"In the first year we worked with Jean, we were able to, among several other things, organize our donor database, develop and successfully implement a comprehensive corporate and individual giving strategy, create a structured stewardship program, and improve the marketing of the club.  Any expectation our board had for Jean was met and exceeded.  


Since March, all of our worlds have been turned upside down and our well thought out plans had to be either significantly altered or canceled.  Because of our relationship with Jean, she helped coordinate an online live event that proved to be extremely successful. Her ability to pivot and come up with essentially a whole new plan is the mark of someone who is truly talented. The Boys & Girls Club of Wooster has definitely benefited from what Jean has to offer and we look forward to continuing to work with her."

"Jean expertly walked us through how to use LinkedIn to position ourselves and/or our clients as experts. The session was fun and interactive. Jean was very responsive and thoughtful to many, many questions from the audience. Since the session, I have utilized much of Jean's practical advice -- really great advice. I wouldn't miss an opportunity to learn from and work with Jean in the future!"
