What would you do if you had to raise $44K in 27 days?

    Take a massive pay cut.

    Sort of.

    [I actually work "for free" ... it's a long story.]

    If you need $44K - offer something to someone that is worth 44K to them (and less to you) or ask for what you want.

    Asking for what you want is very powerful.

    If you are committed to raising 44K in 27 days and determined to make it happen, you have a very good chance of being successful.

    We just used this "formula" to generate a tenfold increase in sales (projected for 2012.) We offered something of value (service) and we asked for what we wanted (a contract.)

    I have also used this simple formula to raise money and food for charities.

    It really works.

    You will probably have to ask a lot ... which means you'll hear a lot of "no's" and that can be discouraging. Just keep asking.
