Five Things I've Learned as a Comms Coordinator

Reporting back from 120 days at Aspiration, here's how I've kept my sanity and grown into my communications position:

1. Little victories

    I need momentum to get things done. I tried diving into a six-month strategy plan first thing in the morning once. Not fun or productive. Now, I start the day with things that have clear end-moments and affirmations (like posting event announcements I planned out the day prior). Gradually, the momentum builds and accelerates, peaking in the afternoon.

Nonprofit Online Resources—Pre-Launch User Testing

We've been working on something that we're pretty excited about—a new part of our website that gathers all of our training resources in one place. We hope that making these resources accessible and sharable will complement our live trainings and encourage you to reuse and repurpose the resources as need. As we prepare to launch, we'd love to share our progress and get your feedback on our page mock-ups before going live!
