Grants--Getting From Here to There--- It All Starts With a Plan (and a "get 'er done" attitude)
So you have a vision of what you want for your organization or that special project or even your own dream or idea. The big question is always,"how do I get from here to there?" The answer? A good horse. Or, all kidding aside, you need: Purpose, Planning and People. Also known as the "P3 Approach."
- Purpose - Provides your "reason" or purpose and motivation (your passion)
- Planning - Provides the road map for getting there
- People - Provide encouragement, ideas, resources and money
We Can Help You Find Your Way
We have been there so we can help you. Spending lots of time on the family ranch, I learned that you save a lot of time (and grief) if you have a plan before you jump into a project. Again, the P3 Approach:
Purpose: We help you clarify your purpose by getting it into words
Planning: We help you create a "Get 'Er Done" Plan
People: We show you how to identify people and resources you need
How We Do This:
- In hands-on workshops and ranch retreats (see "Other Services" page)
- Through one-on-one private consultations
- By providing non-profit and planning services (see "Other Services" page)
- Via online "webinars" (online seminars through website---available soon!)
- With video and email newsletters
- By offering supplemental books, ebooks, and training cds and dvds

The bottom line? Horse sense and business are not all that different in the end.
