The site describes the show as:
A look at charities from the point of view of Marc Pitman, a man who makes a living helping nonprofits raise money. With so many organizations looking for help it’s hard to choose where and when to give. Pitman says you should go with your gut but also gives advice on how to look up financial information about charities. He cautions that the financial ledger doesn’t tell the whole story: good charities often spend more on fund-raising when they are starting up. He also discusses how much CEO’s should make leading charities and takes apart the idea of "restricted" giving. Pitman has written a book "Ask Without Fear."

Last month, Maine Today Media announced that Marc A. Pitman was one of the Maine's top 40 leaders under the age of forty.
40 under 40 recognition is familiar in more populated areas, but this was the first time it was ever offered in Maine. Honorees were chosen from recommendations that came in from all over the state.
In a recent interview, Marc said, "I'm incredibly honored. And I just squeaked by! I turn 40 in January!"

On Monday, June 20, I'll be joining Simone Joyaux and Tom Ahearn in a cool training in Rhode Island. In the afternoon, we'll be training staff in all manner of fundraising. Then, in the evening, we'll be doing a condensed training for board members.
I'm really excited about how these nonprofits will be impacted when staff and board members get together to compare notes! If you're in the Providence area, I hope you'll join us!

Check it out. I talk about sales calls and overcoming objections! :)
The article is at Making an Ask? Get R.E.A.L.!.
I'm committed to making it ridiculously easy for people to get fundraising training. This DVD and Resource CD is part of that. And now, if you buy the DVD you get a free lifetime membership to the online video site! Check it out at www.FundraisingCoachDVDs.com.
