Money, position and power and getting used to how they “play” in our own lives is a critical and strategic subject.
Pay an incentive or bonus for raising money? This could lead to a wrong focus on money instead of donor relationships.
Ask yourself the question, “Who am I positively influencing and making a difference in their lives so that I’ll live on forever?”
