No more sneaking around

Among the things I couldn’t do when I was working on GivingCity “on the side”…..

  • Promote it much
  • Talk about it with strangers (who might know my employer)
  • Work on it during the day
  • Have phone conversations about it at the office
  • Meet with people about it during normal business hours like adults

I’m surprised anyone noticed GivingCity at all.

The good news is, it’s all out in the open now. I can tell people what I do — the one thing that I do! — and not have to explain and repeat myself. It’s like the time I changed from being “Monica Maldonado” (Wha? McDon-nold-o?) to “Monica Williams.” Just so much easier.

That’s why I’m filling up my calendar with meetings. During office hours at real offices. No more sneaking around!

I can’t tell you how nice this is. And how much more I’m learning — exponentially — about philanthropy in Central Texas. (Thank you again, ACF.)
