Default Business Presentation For Local Church

I was just wondering if anyone might have any suggestions on how to give a totally awesome and persuasive business presentation to the church that I have been attending.

I have been talking with one of the pastors there about SMC and he is suggesting that I talk with a lady in the church office that is familiar with business and ecommerce.

If I do this right, then hopefully I will have the church as an ally and as a partner because I really believe that I can get this up and off the ground with just a little help.

If this business can be gotten off of the ground then that will help to give me the capital and the resources to branch out into other areas like real estate investing and import/export.

The main thing to keep in mind when doing a presentation to any audience, church or otherwise, is to keep in mind what the opportunity means to the people you're talking to. They're not interested in what the advantages and benefits are for you; they want to know what's in it for them.

Very true.

Also remember that people like to buy, but they hate to be sold.
