Get Funded with Rodney
Well, Hello and welcome to the Get Funded with Rodney show.
I'm your host, Rodney Walker.
And I'm happy that you are here on today to
hang out with me and have a great time.
And yes, today I'm going to finish telling you
about that story, something that you don't know about
me that I want you to know about me.
It's connected to that story about
how I embarrass myself in Hawaii.
And in addition to that, I'm going to also tell you
and point you to those resources I told you about, that
you can go see the social proof for yourself.
I know some of you want to like,
talk about even in a music video.
I want to show you where that music video is today.
And in addition to that, I'm going to also share
with you three tips for growing a grant business fast.
That's what I'm going to do.
In addition to that, I'm going to
also share with you that IQ boost.
Today's IQ boost is going to
be coming from Bruce Feirstein.
And you're going to like this one that I'm going
to share with you because some of you may be
right in between let me put it this way.
You may be in between the
two things that he talks about.
You just got to stick around to hear it. Okay.
In addition to that, I'm going to share with you one
thing that I love about life, and I'm
going to share that with you right now.
One thing I love about life.
I love that it's malleable.
Yes, I said it, malleable
I'm glad that life is malleable. Now
what do you mean, Rodney? By malleable,
I'm really glad that you can shape life.
You can make what you really want it to be.
And as you've been following me with this story that
I've been sharing with you about the fiasco that I
had on the dance floor, a time when I embarrassed
myself when I was in Hawaii? And, just in case you
want to like, what is Rodney talking about?
Well, go back and listen to episodes 18, 19, 20.
It will catch you up. Okay.
Get Funded with Rodney
Now back to the point, as
I was saying, life is malleable.
And I put myself through some effort to learn
how to dance, because as I embarrassed myself on
that dance floor by falling flat on my face,
that time. I had to redeem myself.
And one of the ways I redeem myself was
by taking those lessons and putting in the effort.
And this is important because I want you to know that if
you have failed at maybe business or maybe you were at your
first grant and it was a dud, it didn't win.
Don't give up.
What would have happened if I had given up
the time that I fell flat on my face
on the dance floor and embarrassed myself?
I had to redeem myself. Right?
So I did.
But in doing so, I eventually appeared in a
music video that now, as of today, it looks
like 32 million people have seen me dance.
Can you believe that? 32 million.
And I'm glad that I'm better.
Now that video is a video that appeared on Vivo video.
It's a video that has these artists that are,
if I remember correctly, from the Dominican Republic.
Are they from?
They might be from the Dominican Republic, I think.
Well, anyway, it's a video with Charlene Towel,
as well as Petran, Savannah and Florentino.
The name of the video is Mal De L`Amor.
Now, if you look down in the show notes,
you should see a direct link to it.
But just in case you don't have it,
just go to YouTube and check it out.
Now anyway, here's yours truly, the one
who didn't know how to dance.
Now appearing in a music video
with 32 million people watching it. Go check it out.
See if you can find me.
I'll have a hand.
Grant Central USA
Yes, my friend, I'm telling you, don't give up.
Keep on going.
And with that being said, let's go
to our IQ boost for the day.
Our IQ boost for the
day is coming from iGrantwriters.com.
Remember, if you're looking to hire a grant
writer or get a grant writing job, or
if you're looking to get discovered at the
grant writer, go over to iGrantwriters.com.
It is the place to be.
Now, our quote says this.
The distance between insanity and genius
is measured only by success.
Yes, they often think you're crazy when
you're first thinking to do something.
If you tell your friends you're going to
do something, they tell you can't do that.
They think that you're crazy.
But when they see you being successful, my
friend, that's when they call your genius.
So what I'm going to encourage you to do
is don't worry about them calling you crazy.
Just go be the genius that you
and I already know that you are. Okay? Go do that.
Go make me proud and I'm cheering for you.
Now, three tips for growing a grant business fast.
First, make a decision.
Yes, it all starts with a decision.
And make the dedication and put in the
time and effort and energy to grow in.
Don't really talk about doing business.
What you need to do is not
talk about it, but be about it.
And the second thing I want to encourage you to
do is to get a winning recipe for success.
Now, remember, success leaves clues.
Model your business after others
that have been successful.
Look, if you have to in other industries and
see what strategies you may be able to bring
in from those other industries into your current grant
business, think different, is what I'm saying.
Think out of the box.
Third, you want to save some time.
Get a mentor or coach to help you.
Now, this is important because this can
save you so much heartache and effort.
And this will help you to avoid a lot of common
mistakes that you are likely to make and instead of you
having to make them, somebody has already made them for you.
And as you invest in a coach or a mentor you can
use their experience and it will save you time, my friend.
That's what I'm saying.
Save some time.
So what I'm encourage you to do
is to take these three tips.
Use them, incorporate them and as you do
so you'll find yourself on the road to
success much quicker and growing your business faster.
Now with that being said, I want to
let you know a very important announcement.
