When looking for an independent contractor to bring in your organization, what type of "interview" do you do?  Are the questions different than if you were hiring an employee? See More

Hi Mary, 

Hope you are having a super day. We recently updated our speaker's promo video and would love to get your take on it. 

When you get a chance, take a peek and leave a comment on our You Tube page.

Hi Mary, 

Always good to hear from you.

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. 

You can also let things go at a discount.

Hi Mary, 

Always good to hear from you. 

I am excited about your projects. 

Let me poke you in the ribs... How exactly is it fair for you, if you give away your books? 

ps - Pei and I recently re-shot our speaker's promo movie. When you get a chance, take a peek and leave a comment on our You Tube page. It's a little longer than 2.5 minutes.

Hi Mary,

Thank you for helping us zero-in on our new look. We sincerely appreciate your willingness.

As our way of saying thanks, let me send you a copy of my most recent eBook: Passion - 4 places you forgot to look.

How is your business coming along?

Hello Mary,

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.

Have a great Friday and New Years!
