Remarkable Quotes

Claire: when you're not clear on those pieces, you tend to take on superfluous activities and say yes to projects that are maybe a little bit outside the scope of your mission, and so ultimately, what ends up happening is that you dilute your impact.

Claire: Nonprofits and startups alike tend to be so focused on output and programming that, Yes, some of this operational stuff can end up on the back burner, but unfortunately, what happens when you don't pay attention to some of those foundational elements is you cap the level of impact that you can create, so there you can only scale to a certain degree without having some of these systems and processes in place.

Claire: What is it that you're trying to track? Because that's the piece that a lot of people get wrong
