Overcoming Adversity To Become A Grant Writer | She Did It... Kayla Bey


Words cannot express how proud I am of Kayla Bey. When she first came to me interested in learning to write grants, she was already in a dire situation. This young lady demonstrated a dogged tenacity to get what she desired even though her circumstances and conditions could have made the average person give up.

She wasn't going to quit! Even though her situation went from bad to worse. She still wasn't giving up on what she wanted. Even when she had to go to a different state with your son, she didn't give up in a move that seemed to be going backward to keep her head above water.

That's why after having worked with her and sharing my knowledge of grant writing, it does my heart well to see her soar like an eagle in doing what she wanted to do and working on her wealth with her business on the side. Hats off to Kayla Bey... Please join me in congratulating this fighter!

Below is the transcript of the surprise pop-up that happened a few weeks ago. You will also see a video of a full...

Grant Trends 2021: Changes Are In The Air As HHS Seeks To Modernize Grant Management Processes And Systems


Hey, guys, Rodney Walker here of Grant Central USA. I'm over at the Grants Community blog and I just want to bring your attention to a recent post regarding the Office of Management and Budget.

They've officially designated grants.gov as the Managing Agency, the United States Department of Health and Human Services as the Quality Service Management Office for Grants Management.

This means that HHS will be leading the effort to transform the federal government management process from end to end, basically overseeing the grant management process in four areas the pre-award, post-award, and closeout.

Now, what's really important to note about this is a few things.

One, that the HHS will be working to help, to modernize, and to improve on the grant development efforts.

This also means that improving your skill in grant writing, through certification, will be more beneficial in your career as an online grant writer.

And what's also really worth noting, as we look at this, in the fiscal...

Grant Writing For Artists ... Is It Even Worth It or Not?



Grant writing for artists is similar yet different from other aspects of applying for grant funding. In this video, I share some information about being an artist and writing grants from this perspective. This lays the groundwork for how to pursue it.

Hey, my friend Rodney Walker here and just doing a little biking and I decided to take a break and talk to you about this whole thing about Grant writing for artists. Now, I know you may be an artist right now, and I don't know what kind of artist you are, even as you kind of hear in the background.

How a Freelance Writer can Make the Transition to Grant Writer


As a freelance writer, you have control over your schedule and workload. You have the opportunity to work with individuals and organizations from various industries, too. However, this career path offers little job security and financial stability. When work opportunities are scarce, you’ll be left with one-off assignments that barely pay the minimum.

Fortunately, you don’t have to leave the freelancer lifestyle to earn additional income. Grant writing is a good way to bolster your current work. Non-profit organizations are always in need of skilled writers to create proposals to raise money. This line of work allows you to help make changes to the world without leaving the comfort of your home.

What is Grant Writing?

Grant writing is the concept of creating proposals to raise funds for the activities planned by non-profit organizations. These proposals are sent to financial institutions and potential donors in the private sector.

This profession is always in high...

What’s The Difference Between A Grant Writing Training Vs. A Grant Writing Certification?




Hey, guys, Rodney Walker here, I want to share with you what is the difference between a grant writing training versus a grant writing certification? This is a question that I get quite often, so I want to address it. What's the difference? Now, when you have a grant writing training, a training is very specific to what you're trying to learn, and it's really training designed to help you to master a certain type of skill. And whatever the skill is, there are different areas of grant writing. There are so many areas in grant writing. And so when you when you're looking at actually doing this, you want to kind of take into consideration, you know, what is the training that I'm looking to go through? What is it going to be providing me? What exactly is it going to be teaching me? And there, like I said, so many different areas. So one is training you to learn a particular skill.
