Aug 8, 2022

Do you think of your one sheet as a sales tool? I know, even though we don't love the word “sales,” it IS a sales tool to get your foot in the door with an event planner. Keep listening to find out what to put on your one sheet (and some no-no's!).

    So good, Mary! Our missions director just talked about this in our Fundraising meeting yesterday. He encouraged us to created a “One Sheet” to give to Pastor’s wives and WM’s leaders. I started looking for examples last night and couldn’t find any. Then this morning and I open my inbox and there is your email. Talk about Fast! The Lord answered this prayer quicker than I could get it all the way out!! :0)
