"Mary, I have a friend that does consulting for non profits as her only source of income and she does really well. I am sure that you could hire her to help you set up. If you are interested in contacting her please shoot me an email at:…"
Do they have a budget for consulting and have they shared that with you? Just because they are non-profit does not mean they don't have funds available. Additionally, I would look at the scope of the work you will be doing for them and…"
I run a manufacturing consulting firm and will use independent contractors on occasion. When necessary, I do interview the independent contractors we develop relationships with. Some of the differences are I ask them about their current client…"

Great question. My first thought was to contact my local public transportation service (in the Portland area it is Trimet) to ask. I then tried the offices of the county where I live, the department of senior services, or…"
Thank you for your reply. You, the children of my potential customers, are part of the target market

Nothing wrong with giving away free stuff as long as it's part of your plan.
Let it be a value-added perk, that way, it's a nice surprise for your audience and event planners. Let people know that you normally sell it for $14.95 on your site (or whatever is the price), build the value.
I saw your post about needing more info for building a website. What a great way to start the new year!
I've been a 48days member since it first began and have been a 48days approved web design coach. Last year I was able to go to the Sanctuary and meet Dan! I started a fast growing group for WordPress web design and have been able to help a lot of 48days members. I own a Web design and media company so you know that I'll be putting all my efforts into your project (no moonlighting jobs while working another full time job here).
I'd be honored to speak with you about your needs and how I can help. I sent you a friend request and perhaps we can talk on the phone about your ideas of your future website.
It was nice to meet you as well at the Coaching with Excellence Seminar last week. What a great time and a wonderful group of people! I wish you all the best the world has to offer and look forward to interacting with you here and maybe seeing you again at future events/seminars.
