ASK for Anything Artfully!

Imagine having a 3-sentence formula to know exactly what to say to ask for anything… and get an enthusiastic YES!  When we get clear on what we want, and why, we know who to ask. As we shake off false beliefs about the outcomes, we can focus on understanding the shared values and interests of our prospective giver and ask simply and with clarity. Oprah said, “We get in life what we have the courage to ask for.” Marcy’s formula gives you the courage to ask confidently and provides limitless opportunities to apply it for personal and professional success, forge incredible partnerships and generate massive amounts of money and resources to compose a good world.

Tues, May 9 and Thurs, May 11 (a two-day series!)

Determine what you need in place for success and how to inspire your Board and colleagues to WANT to help you build authentic connections (not ask).

Whatever size “major” is for you, embrace the opportunity to raise more money, do more good, and have fun doing it! Register here: https://afpdeepdives.org.
