Carissa Figgins on Creating Sustainability in Her Org. & Yours 

While non-profits and cause-based organizations are founded through passion and good intentions, they don’t always have the tools to keep the doors open. Listen as Carissa shares how she ensures the success of her operation and helps others to do the same.

Carissa Figgins  is a unique Predictable Success Consultant, as her work is primarily in cause-based, non-profit organizations. With over 20 years of experience, she has extensive knowledge in the workings of such endeavors. From volunteering at church to serving on the board of directors and as chairperson for numerous non-profits, it’s safe to say she has passion for her work.

In this interview with Predictable Success COO, Dave McKeown, Carissa talks about the challenges of non-profits and their parallel to profit-based companies. She explains how the richness and universal application of the Predictable Success model allowed her to foster leadership with staff and volunteers.

As the founder of Sparrow’s Nest Maternity Home in O’Fallon, Missouri, Carissa was able to create a successful and sustainable organization. She now wants to share that model with other non-profits and for-profits alike through her role with Predictable Success.

Please listen to Carissa’s devotion for non-profit work, and the one lesson she wants you to walk away with.
