In this, and the second half of our interview next week, you’re going to hear some exciting news about the evolution of Campaign Sidekick, learn proven strategies and tactics for voter contact you can deploy in the last few weeks of this election and find out how these guys got involved in politics. Their stories are unique but very similar in theme to many of the folks we’ve talked to on the podcast: they involve a lot of hard work.
This was a really fun interview for me to do with the guys and I think y’all will really enjoy it!
Train yourself to feel the precursors of anger or frustration. Establish a trigger. For me, it’s often a taste in my mouth and a tightening of my chest. Perhaps accompanied by a, “are you effing serious?!” in the back of my head.
When I feel that reaction boiling up, I know that my lesser angels are jettisoning my plan and overreacting out of anger.
If you truly believe that the goal you’re pursuing is transformational, you should be tenacious in the pursuit of funding. If you’re not active in articulating the reason and need for funding, what should compel me to believe that your goal is so significant?
Hey Guys, welcome back to the How to Run for Office Podcast! A lot of listeners I’ve talked to are interested in making the move from Activist to working in politics as a paid job. This week’s guest is familiar with that struggle…even though she didn’t start out with that goal in mind.
Whatever your political persuasion, I think there are some good things to learn from listening to how Raquel has approached her political journey.
During the interview, we encourage folks who want to get involved in politics to start knocking doors or cleaning bathrooms…whatever the campaign needs…and working up from there. I think it’s easy to write this off as simple “Dues paying.” But it’s more than that. While I think we covered the subject pretty well, I wanted to direct y’all to a My Campaign Coach Minute episode we recently did that deals with the topic as well.
