Ask Without Fear! is three years old!It’s been three years since Ask Without Fear! came out!

What a wild ride it’s been!

I wrote Ask Without Fear! because there were so many wonderful causes here in Maine with amazingly passionate volunteers, but they were chronically underfunded. A few could afford to hire me to come in and work with them. But I’m committed to making it ridiculously easy to get fundraising training.

So I wrote this book and kept the price below $15 so that volunteers or staff could get both solid fundraising advice and a healthy dose of encouragement to get out and ask for money!

It certainly has done that! In just three years, it’s been read by thousands of people from around the world. I think I’ve gotten emails and thank you’s from every continent except Antarctica saying the book has helped them raise more money for their charity. I’ve even be privileged to teach boards and staffs to “Ask Without Fear!” in many different countries including New Zealand and Bermuda.

The book became an ebook (one of the first Kindle books) and also inspired a radio show and a popular DVD training. And of course, there’s an Ask Without Fear! Facebook page! (Be sure to “like” it over on the page or in the box on the lefthand side of this post.)

Ask Without Fear! has increased in value

All of that must have raised the book’s value. I saw one vendor on Amazon is selling it for $142.96!
Ask Without Fear! is now sold for $142.96

Probably a steal at that price…but you can still get it from my for just $14.95. πŸ™‚ And even the new DVD set is less expensive at only $124.95 from πŸ™‚

Others are celebrating

As Ask Without Fear! turned three, I’ve been humbled by the nice things others have been saying about it:

But it’s all about you

People from large multi-national nonprofits to nonprofits so small they don’t even have a staff yet are learning to “Ask Without Fear!” The comments on the page at Amazon and on the testimonials page here show some of the impact the book is having.
