Beth keynoted two of our sold-out nonprofit conferences and received rave reviews. She was not only a pleasure to work with, but left our audience with actionable insights and actively supported outreach efforts leading up to the program. I can't recommend her highly enough!

The 'put on your own oxygen mask first before helping others' message from the airlines could not be more relevant to the nonprofit sector and brought to life by this book. This is an essential read for the extraordinary nonprofit and social change leaders around the world working tirelessly to serve our communities. Thanks to Beth for writing 'The Happy Healthy Nonprofit' and leading by example.

'The Healthy, Happy Nonprofit' is essential reading for everyone in the social sector. First and foremost, it provides a clear path to survival for those at the front lines of social change who experience the stress and strain of our passionate, but under-resourced sector on a daily basis. But in the long term, the book is a wake-up call for every leader, board member, and funder who doesn't understand the risk we have of losing incredible talent and the real price of burnout. Beth and Aliza have achieved a masterful feat--providing practical guidance and a call to action--all in one book!
