(even if you’re still in your 9-5)
90 days to attract your ideal clients and build a profitable, flexible grant writing business.
In my 90 day coaching program, we’ll work together 1 on 1 to:
Most of all, you’ll become the successful business woman with a slew of quality clients, living out your calling and purpose.
I came to DeaRonda when I had a lack of confidence in my grant business. I struggled with finding my target client and feeling comfortable about pricing. I was definitely undercharging for the value I bring. I was impressed by her success and her experience aligns with where I see myself in the future.
She is very patient and good at tailoring her coaching to my specific needs. We dove right into various grant concepts and she shared real time feedback on a proposal I am preparing for a client. She gave excellent feedback beacuse she is a great writer and thinks strategically.
I have truly grown as a grant writer and have the confidence to go after clients in new sectors. She has helped me gain traction for higher paying clients through the things she taught me in our sessions. I'm so glad I made the decision to work with her.
I started where you are. I was undercharging, attracting the wrong clients and my sales calls were a complete disaster!
Although I graduated high school and college with honors - running a business wasn't my forte, and sales? Well, let's just say I couldn't close a deal to save my life.
Fast forward a few years and now I have over $250k in gross sales, I’m fully booked, I’m turning down business, and my clients don’t want me to leave!
I’m DeaRonda and I’ve built my grant writing business, June First Firm, so that I get to work with my ideal clients day in and day out - without having to chase business or say yes to projects that don’t feel good to me.
I’ve seen so many quality grant writers want to do their own consulting but don’t know where to start or how to do it well. I want to share my success with other women grant writers by teaching you my systems and frameworks to get fully booked.
A little bit more about me: I have worked at and consulted with numerous leading nonprofits as a grant professional and have nearly 10 years of experience as a grant writer winning awards totaling $35M over the course of my career.
I’m a member of the Grant Professionals Association (GPA) where I have served as Georgia Chapter President for two years. I have an MBA from Ashford University and Bachelor of Science degree from the prestigious Tuskegee University.
DeaRonda's coaching has really helped me understand much more about the Grant Writing field! The value of her resources and insights on writing, best practices for managing the grant cycle, and firsthand experiences she shared in building skills as a grant writer have far exceeded both my expectation and my investment for her services. It was also a blessing to connect with her from the unique perspective of a grant writer of color, and I feel much more confident stepping into the field armed with both the tools and insights to succeed. DeaRonda was genuine and communicative, and I'm grateful to have had the chance to connect!

DeaRonda was such a great help. She provided me with ways to make my grant writing stronger and detailed oriented, an area I struggle with a lot. I now feel more confident and ready to submit our yearly deliverables. She also helped me create some structure around my nonprofit, guiding me on how to be more productive and ways to reach my target audience. I'm excited to implement these new strategies.
