The first letter you write to someone who needs help will help them make the right decision, says author and entrepreneur Robyn Regan.
“It’s a powerful tool for people who are in crisis, who are struggling financially or who are just trying to make ends meet,” she says.
“You can write to people who may be struggling to make money, and tell them that you know they’re in trouble.”
In this case, she says, you could give a message like: “We’re in your shoes, and we’re here to help.”
Regan’s book, “A Letter to the Poor,” is a collection of letters written to those in need by entrepreneurs, and the first in a series of five books that she co-wrote.
The letters are a way for entrepreneurs to tell their stories in a personal way, she said.
“I’m a really passionate entrepreneur.
I love being an entrepreneur.
So when I was writing the letters, I was just really thinking about how to make people’s lives better,” Regan said.
She said the letters help people understand their circumstances and understand their role in society.
“They’re really telling them their story and what they’re doing wrong.
Reggans’ letters are filled with anecdotes about how she’s helped people, from her mother, a nurse who was diagnosed with breast cancer, to her father, a chef who was working part time. “
If I were an entrepreneur and I was in a situation where I needed to give a letter to somebody, and they were struggling to pay rent, or they were going through financial problems, or there was a health crisis and I wanted to send something that was really helpful, I would definitely think about that and think about how that would help them.”
Reggans’ letters are filled with anecdotes about how she’s helped people, from her mother, a nurse who was diagnosed with breast cancer, to her father, a chef who was working part time.
“In the middle of my first year, he was struggling with his cancer.
And I think when he read those letters, he knew he was going to get help, and he could take some of the pressure off of his shoulders,” Reggas said.
The letter is meant to be a one-stop shop for those who need it.
It’s also a reminder of why Regan decided to write the books in the first place.
“When I started writing these letters, it wasn’t about making people feel good or giving them hope or making them feel like they were doing something good,” she said, “it was more about being able to help them and give them the tools to help themselves.”
Reagan is the co-author of “A Call to Action,” which is available on Amazon.com and other retailers.
She hopes that as she continues writing the books, her letters will encourage people to take time out of their busy schedules to help others.
“People are so busy, and it’s so hard to see the good in the world and the bad,” Reagan said.
In “A Walk to Help a Neighbor,” she shares some of her experiences working with people in crisis.
“One of the hardest things I ever had to do was just be there for a person and just be a kind, generous person,” she writes.
“But then I realized I couldn’t be a compassionate person.
I didn’t have to be, and I couldn, so I stopped being a compassionate.
I stopped doing that.”
Rebec’s books are a new approach to how people can use a letter as a tool for fundraising.
“We use a lot of the same tools we use in other contexts, but it’s not the same,” Reginas said, explaining that the way a letter can be used in fundraising is different.
“A lot of times, you have a letter that says, ‘I’m going to go do this.’
You go do that, and then it says, I’m going on a vacation.
“By writing letters, you’re giving people the opportunity to make the best decision they can,” she added. “
“Your letter is about a person. “
By writing letters, you’re giving people the opportunity to make the best decision they can,” she added.
“Your letter is about a person.
You’re talking to them, you want to know what’s going on in their life, and you want them to understand why they need the money.”
