15-minute appointments

Carol Kent's husband, Gene, has had twenty years of merch sales at Carol’s speaking events and he’d be happy to talk to you about “back of the room” sales. It’s possible to double the amount you receive from an honorarium when your product table is run well. Gene will answer your questions about what works and what doesn't.  From product setup, to handling volunteers at the product table, to payment options, to shipping product ahead of time, to taxes, and even to negotiating the placement of your merchandise table. He would also welcome appointments on including your spouse in ministry. Are you anticipating being in partnership with your spouse, or are you totally “on your own” when it comes to ministry? Whose “gifting” should be used where? Feel free to have your spouse join you for this Zoom connection with Gene.
