As I’m talking with leaders, I hear all the time that 1:1 meeting effectiveness is a felt need. Why?

Because your people aren’t participating. They’re not feeling cared for or developed. They’re not engaged in the process.

My friends at Leadr are working to solve that problem. They’re the first-ever People Development Software, focused on helping you have better 1:1 meetings that are employee-focused, drive engagement, and put an end to meeting dread.

And as a one-stop-shop software solution for all things people-focused, they also help you streamline the other healthy leadership habits you’re struggling with such as effective feedback, clear goals, and better performance reviews. They believe this all starts with the 1:1 meeting.

So, check out for how you can better engage and grow your team today through 1:1 meetings—a leader’s most powerful leadership development tool. Be sure to mention promo code CAREY for 20% of your first year.


Have you ever thought: “Nobody actually gives stock.”

This is a HUGE misconception in the giving space today. Your donors WANT to give stock, because it’s the most tax efficient way to give—they just don’t want to jump through hoops to do so.

Overflow is an online software that empowers donors to easily give stock donations to churches and non-profits within minutes, not months.

You see, 90% of US wealth is in non-cash assets (like stock). Churches that ONLY accept cash donations leave a generosity gap. Overflow is here to help bridge that gap.

The average cash donation in the US is just $128, but the average stock donation through Overflow is over $10,000.

Increase Giving and Fully Fund Your Mission—Regardless of Where You're at Now.

When it comes to money conversations with your church, my guess is that you want the outcome (margin in your budget and a generous congregation) without the process (having to raise funds and talk about it).

The Art of Building a Generous Congregation is a proven method for increasing giving, creating a culture of generosity, and building financial margin at your church... without the stress and awkwardness.

Even if you don’t feel comfortable talking about money right now.
Even if you’ve never seen your congregation fully engage with that kind of conversation.
Even if you’ve tried other methods without success.

And yes, especially, if you could make a bigger difference by increasing your budget by 20%, 30%, or even 40%.
