NSBA Spotlight - Sandra Chaney

Have you heard of the National Small Business Association?  The NSBA has been America’s Small Business Advocate since 1937.

At the beginning of each new session of Congress, NSBA members gather to hear from thought leaders on countless issues facing small business, and then discuss, debate, and ultimately vote on the organization’s Top 10 Priority Issues for the coming two years.

Their NSBA Newsletter offers “NSBA Spotlight” articles, and this week Sandra Chaney is featured!

As a survivor of domestic violence, Ms. Chaney says that she didn’t choose her journey, rather, “it chose me.” she first began her career in advocacy and nonprofit strategy as a volunteer at My Sister’s Place, a local nonprofit women’s shelter. Seeing that “their story was my story,” Sandra dedicated herself to fighting for the welfare of domestic violence survivors.

Since 2005, she’s authored eight books on her story, single motherhood, success for women in small business, and nonprofit development. Among these, The Inside Secrets To Getting Money For Your Non-Profit has become a guidebook for nonprofits who struggle to secure the funding they need.

How do you advocate for others, or support causes you are passionate about? Learn how she has aligned her life mission and visit her website .

Consider this … what you might think of as failure is really teaching us something valuable.” We celebrate Ms. Chaney and all women on International Women’s Day!
