Episode 5 with co-founder and CEO of She's the First Tammy Tibbetts: YES today [Nov. 3 2020] is anxiety-filled, but today is also an opportunity for us to look inside ourselves, look around at our communities and our world and think deeply about what we have to offer to build the world we want. You may be thinking ... then what!? How do we create systemic change, not just bandaid solutions? How do we make a sustainable long term plan that won’t burn us out in months or years?Tammy and her co-author Christen Brandt take us through a step-by-step process that answers those big questions in their book Impact: A Step-by-Step Plan to Create the World You Want to Live in.

I hope this book gives them permission that it’s ok to say no. You don’t have to throw your hat in the ring for every volunteer opportunity and every fundraising ask, because that’s not sustainable and having focus is so important to being effective. You can care about every social injustice out there, and you should frankly, but it doesn’t mean that you have to… distribute the bulk of your resources everywhere. You can find ways to practice allyship as a lifestyle, being an ally and an advocate for many different causes, but when you’re making decisions about where to put your time and your money … there’s a finite amount that you have to give. So if you don’t over-distribute that then you’ll be able to find more fulfillment personally because you won’t feel like you’ve scattered yourself so that it’s hard to really know what it all added up to. If you go in with an actual plan, (this is what you walk away from the book with, an actual one page plan of your goals ranked by effort) that you can come back and check in with yourself on, and be honest. I have an impact plan too, there are goals that I’ve set that I just keep not hitting and I’ve had to recognize that “ok, this is just not the time in my life that I’m going to be able to do that but I want to make sure I’m doing this other thing really well.” So, scaling back and not feeling bad about that."
