Some people are dreamers. They choose a career shaped by dreams of making the world a better place--caring for kids, lifting up the poor, protecting the planet. When your dreams are that powerful, it's easy to neglect yourself. Both lives and dreams can suffer the consequences.

If you're one of the dreamers, this is the book for you. Changing the World Without Losing Your Mind is a down-to-earth guide to mission-driven leadership. Drawing on his decades of experience as an acclaimed nonprofit leader, Alex Counts offers practical advice on such vital activities as fundraising, team-building, communications, and management. He shows you how to run an organization--and your own life--both effectively and sustainably, giving joyfully to those around you while also caring generously for yourself.

Candid, funny, insightful, and wise, Changing the World Without Losing Your Mind is a book you'll refer to throughout your career . . . no matter where your dreams may lead you.
