The Your Nonprofit Life podcast is dedicated to the folks who are working hard to have a positive impact in their communities and heal the world.

Join me, Laura Zielke, each week to learn from both staff and board members of not-for-profit organizations. Even if my guestโ€™s mission is completely different than yours, youโ€™ll be encouraged by their grit, vulnerability, authenticity, and generosity.

When you listen, you will feel less alone in your work, and you will be inspired to take your nonprofit from messy to thriving without burning out in the process.
