One Stop -- Let Us Find Your Best Earning Opportunity.

General pitch

Hi [Group Member],

Things are changing and I'd like to share a quick tip with you that our alumni are finding crucial for success. There are SO many choices with career service carriers (and many are bad)!

So We Vetted 70+ Career Service Carriers in Our Region

You can now get the best carrier, with the best offers, and the best track record for your situation. We've already vetted the top 70. From that point we can help you narrow down further based on your business.

Group Purchasing Power Means LOW COST

Our group buying power allows for competitive pricing when compared to going carrier-direct. One partner in our network achieved 5 times the value for the same pricing offered by their previous carrier.

But Strategy is the Glue. And We Already Know Your Situation From the Inside

Most carriers or cable companies want to sell you their solution and some will sell you promises they can't keep... costing you money and time, up front, for the next years.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a seasoned team who helps to create your strategy, choose from the 70 best vendors, and manage the implementation? We'll also handle your escalations if there are any problems.

You Get a Free Strategic Data and Analysis

Call us today and we'll give you a custom Strategic Network Analysis. You'll want to make sure your multiple locations, resource-hungry applications, and IT infrastructure all run quickly and securely. Call or email us to set-up a 1 hour analysis. My team and I will help you begin to budget and plan your network services blueprint for the next 3-5 years.

Reach us at 703... or

Even if you don't work with us, make sure you plan your IT strategy around your contract expiration date. We're finding it to be more and more important for IT departments.

Sincerely, Gary Jay & Your CNM Council for Career Services Team

P.S. [Group Member], if you feel like I've wasted your time on this strategy call, I'll personally write you a check for $100. I guarantee it will be the most useful call you've had in weeks. Call us at 703... or reply to this email.

Development strategy

The Group plans to develop the needed technology under CNM Cloud Project and marketing channels under WorldOpp Project. These two projects shall allow recruiting administrators needed to start running the Services.


  1. Create a good contract with vendors -- PMP providers, career coaches, universities, and so on.
  2. Create a good commercial proposal to possible vendors, stressing out the non-profit nature of the endeavor and our significant work in preparation, mentoring, and so on, and stressing our interest in their discounts.
  3. Create the list of desired vendors -- with regard to PMP, Dr. Ali and shall be there.
  4. Start slowly distributing our offer, while trying with those with whom we already landed mutual understanding of benefits of collaboration.
  5. Create the website at -- Mercedes would suggest what should be on the websites and Gary implements. Both of them will have admin accesses. The website will also be linked to a bigger platform, which will be used for training, demonstrations, and skill-based volunteering. Later, the platform will include (a) video-hosting, (b) email, (c) videoconferencing. Currently, it includes:
  6. Post vendors' offers in the store.
  7. Re-develop our offer and distribute it to a larger number of potential vendors.
  8. Launch quick overviews of the hottest items on our list -- online + onsite.
  9. Launch regular meetings (you online + me onsite) like "Getting started with Friends Of CNM". Our pitch will be a match between people's needs and vendors' services plus a bulk of free services such as online training, career coaching, mentorship, and, most of all, in-take.
  10. Help people and contribute to a better world.

Current projects

Its development occurred under two projects -- CNM Cloud Project and WorldOpp Project.

2019 Careerprise presentation

The video of the presentation is published on (4:00). Here is its full text.

Careerprise. A one-stop shop for career services that Friends Of CNM brings to patrons of the Career Network Ministry and the general public. The services of Friends Of CNM are called Careerprise services. They include (a) in-house WorldOpp Pipeline and (b) outsourced services of Educaship partners that Friends Of CNM sources, screens, selects, and controls.
Careerprise service. Any service that is designed for job seekers or the workforce and delivered either by Friends Of CNM or by Educaship partners using marketing channels of Friends Of CNM.


Welcome to Careerprise Essentials. In this brief presentation, we are going to take a look at Careerprise services in general and its signature products. WorldOpp is presented separately in the Services presentation. So, let's proceed without that for now.

What Careerprise is

Careerprice itself is a one stop shop for career services that Friends of CNM brings to patrons of the Career Network Ministry and the general public. The services of Friends of CNM are called Career Price services. They include the in-house WorldOpp Pipeline and out sourced services of Careerprice partners that Friends of CNM screens, selects and controls.
Definition of a career, it is a professional undertaking for a significant period of a person’s life and with opportunities for programs and enterprise is any undertaking to create something or develop somebody which takes some level of enterprise effort. As we discussed earlier, Careerprice service is any service designed for job seekers or workforce and delivered either by Friends of CNM or by Career Price partners using marketing channels of Friends of CNM. Here, two services are particularly mentioned. Educaship and Bracka leadership academy.


Educaship, it consists of three words E D U- stands for Education, C A- stands for Career and SHIP- is for Apprenticeship. And so, Educaship is a blend of learning and work which is designed to prepare knowledgeable, skill capable and employable workforce.

Bracka school

Bracka leadership academy is the department of Bracka school that designs and develop courses and learning activities and value added administration.

In-house vs outsourced services

Taking a look at the graph under Careerprice Services, we have communities, we have fellow staff which actually its employees of Educaship Alliance LLC and we have vendors. For outside service providers, vendors, their services should be approved or controlled by Friends of CNM in order to be delivered. Also I want to take a look at another graph which will represent the difference, so in house services are called WorldOpp and they include WorldOpp Prime and WorldOpp for the Vulnerable which the Services presentation covers.
For now, everything for WorldOpp is offered in-house but for Careerprice, partner services are available, partner services are not available for WorldOpp participants. When we mention Educaship and Bracka Leadership Academy it means not only services but they are a part of WorldOpp but some services are outside of them.


This concludes the Careerprise Essentials presentation. We have defined Careerprise and taken a look at its signature services such as Educaship and Septem Artes Administrativi. If you haven't done yet so, you are now welcome to move to the Services presentation.

Selling tickets for career events can be a viable option, depending on the nature and scope of the event. Here are some considerations to help you decide whether to sell tickets:

1. **Event Type**: If you're organizing large-scale conferences, workshops, or retreats with significant overhead costs (venue rental, catering, speakers, etc.), selling tickets can help offset these expenses and ensure a return on investment.

2. **Value Proposition**: Assess the value you're providing to attendees. If your event offers valuable insights, networking opportunities, and tangible takeaways that can advance attendees' careers, they may be willing to pay for access.

3. **Target Audience**: Consider the demographics and financial capacity of your target audience. Professionals or individuals actively seeking career development opportunities may be more inclined to purchase tickets if they perceive the event as beneficial to their career advancement.

4. **Competitive Landscape**: Research competing events in your industry or region to determine pricing strategies. If similar events charge for admission and attendees are accustomed to paying for such experiences, selling tickets may be the norm.

5. **Branding and Perception**: Charging for tickets can convey a sense of exclusivity and premium quality, positioning your event as a valuable investment in attendees' professional growth.

6. **Revenue Generation**: Selling tickets can generate revenue directly from attendee sales. Additionally, it provides a predictable revenue stream that can be used to cover event expenses, invest in future events, or reinvest in your career services business.

7. **Market Testing**: If you're unsure about the demand for your event or the optimal pricing structure, you can conduct market testing by offering early bird discounts or limited-time promotions to gauge interest and price sensitivity.

8. **Alternatives to Ticket Sales**: If you decide not to sell tickets, consider alternative revenue streams such as sponsorships, exhibitor fees, or partnerships with companies seeking access to your event's audience.

Ultimately, the decision to sell tickets should align with your event goals, target audience, and financial considerations. If done strategically, ticket sales can enhance the sustainability and success of your career events while providing value to attendees.

Other than a ticket

Certainly! Instead of using the term "ticket," you can consider using alternative terminology that aligns with the tone and branding of your career event. Here are some options:

1. **Pass**: Offer event passes or access passes that grant entry to your career event.

2. **Admission Pass**: Use "admission pass" to emphasize that attendees are gaining access to your event.

3. **Access Badge**: Frame the entry pass as an "access badge," highlighting the privilege of attending your event.

4. **Registration**: Encourage attendees to "register" for your event, emphasizing the process of securing their spot.

5. **Entrance Token**: Position the entry pass as an "entrance token," symbolizing the gateway to valuable career opportunities.

6. **Event Pass**: Simply refer to the pass as an "event pass," conveying the idea of participation in your career event.

7. **Conference Pass**: If your event is a conference, use the term "conference pass" to denote entry to conference sessions and activities.

8. **VIP Pass**: Offer a premium tier of entry with a "VIP pass," providing exclusive perks and privileges to high-value attendees.

9. **Workshop Pass**: If your event includes workshops or training sessions, offer a "workshop pass" for access to these specialized activities.

10. **Seminar Pass**: For events focused on educational seminars or presentations, use the term "seminar pass" to denote entry.

Choose a term that resonates with your event's branding and audience expectations, and ensure clarity in your marketing materials to communicate what attendees will receive with their pass.

Ticket or pass

Yes, if you're organizing career workshops, the choice between "ticket" and "pass" still depends on the factors mentioned earlier, such as branding, audience expectations, and the message you want to convey. However, given the professional and educational nature of career workshops, here's how the considerations might apply specifically to your context:

    • Ticket:**

1. **Formality:** Using "ticket" might align well with the professional tone often associated with career workshops, particularly if the workshops are structured and focused on specific topics.

2. **Familiarity:** Attendees may expect to receive a ticket for entry, as it's a common practice for events with scheduled sessions or presentations.

3. **Implication:** "Ticket" can emphasize the idea of securing a spot for a particular workshop session, especially if your workshops have limited seating or require advanced registration.

    • Pass:**

1. **Flexibility:** If your career workshops span multiple days or if attendees can choose from a variety of sessions, "pass" could convey the idea of broader access and flexibility to attend different workshops within the event.

2. **Exclusivity:** Offering different levels of passes (e.g., standard pass, VIP pass) with varying access to workshops or additional perks can create a sense of exclusivity and enhance the perceived value of attending.

3. **Informality:** If your workshops have a more interactive or hands-on approach, "pass" might feel less formal and better reflect the collaborative learning environment you aim to create.

Considering these factors, "ticket" may be more commonly associated with career workshops due to its formality and the expectation of structured sessions. However, you can still explore using "pass" if you want to emphasize flexibility, exclusivity, or a more casual atmosphere, especially if your workshops offer a range of experiences beyond traditional presentations. Ultimately, choose the term that best aligns with your event's goals and resonates with your target audience.


There's nothing inherently wrong with selling appointments for short one-on-one help, as long as it's done ethically and transparently. However, there are some potential pitfalls or considerations to be aware of:

1. **Ethical concerns**: It's essential to ensure that you're providing genuine value to your clients during these appointments. Selling appointments without delivering meaningful assistance or advice can be seen as exploitative.

2. **Transparency**: Be clear about what clients can expect during these appointments, including the scope of the help you'll provide, any limitations, and the pricing structure. Transparency helps build trust with your clients and avoids misunderstandings.

3. **Setting realistic expectations**: Make sure clients understand what can be accomplished within the timeframe of the appointment. If their expectations are unrealistic, they may end up dissatisfied with the service.

4. **Fair pricing**: Ensure that your pricing is fair and reflective of the value you provide. Overpricing your services can lead to dissatisfaction among clients, while underpricing may undermine the perceived value of your expertise.

5. **Accessibility**: Consider whether this pricing model makes your services accessible to a broad range of clients. If your rates are too high, you may be excluding potential clients who could benefit from your help but cannot afford it.

6. **Customer satisfaction**: Monitor client feedback to ensure that they're satisfied with the service they receive during these appointments. Address any concerns or issues promptly to maintain a positive reputation.

Overall, selling appointments for short one-on-one help can be a legitimate and valuable service, but it's essential to approach it with integrity, transparency, and a commitment to delivering genuine value to your clients.

Alternative to appointment

The terminology you use to describe the sale of appointments for short one-on-one help can vary depending on your business model and target audience. Here are some options:

1. **Appointments**: This term straightforwardly communicates that clients are booking a specific time slot for one-on-one assistance.

2. **Sessions**: Referring to these sales as "sessions" can convey the idea of a structured interaction where the client receives dedicated help or advice within a defined timeframe.

3. **Consultations**: If the focus is on providing expert advice or guidance, "consultations" may be an appropriate term.

4. **Passes**: Using "passes" suggests a more flexible arrangement where clients purchase a certain number of sessions upfront and can redeem them as needed.

5. **Tickets**: Similar to "passes," "tickets" implies a predetermined number of sessions that the client can use at their discretion.

Ultimately, the terminology you choose should align with your branding, business model, and the expectations of your target audience. It's essential to select terms that clearly communicate the nature of the service and make it easy for clients to understand what they're purchasing.

Assessment sales

Establishing clear pricing and packages for skill assessment services involves structuring your offerings in a way that aligns with the needs of your target audience while also being transparent and easy to understand. Here are some ideas for how you can do this:

1. **Basic, Standard, and Premium Packages**: Offer tiered packages with varying levels of service and features to cater to different client needs and budgets. For example:

  - Basic Package: Includes essential skill assessment tools and reports.
  - Standard Package: Adds more advanced assessment features and customization options.
  - Premium Package: Offers comprehensive assessment solutions with additional support and consulting services.

2. **Pay-Per-Assessment Model**: Charge clients based on the number of assessments conducted. This can be a straightforward pricing structure, particularly for clients who only need occasional assessments.

3. **Subscription-Based Pricing**: Offer subscription plans where clients pay a monthly or annual fee for unlimited access to your skill assessment platform or a certain number of assessments per month.

4. **Customized Packages**: Allow clients to build their own packages by selecting specific assessment tools, features, and support services based on their unique needs. This customizable approach gives clients flexibility and ensures they only pay for what they need.

5. **Add-On Services**: Offer additional services that clients can purchase alongside their chosen package. This could include things like training workshops, consulting sessions, or custom assessment tool development.

6. **Discounts for Bulk Purchases**: Provide discounts or incentives for clients who purchase assessments in bulk or commit to long-term contracts. This encourages larger purchases and fosters ongoing relationships with clients.

7. **Free Trial or Demo Package**: Offer a free trial or demo package that allows potential clients to test out your assessment tools and services before committing to a paid package. This gives them a chance to experience the value you provide firsthand.

8. **Clear Pricing Tables or Grids**: Present your pricing structure in a clear and visually appealing format, such as a pricing table or grid, that outlines the features included in each package and the corresponding price.

9. **Transparent Pricing Policy**: Clearly communicate your pricing policy, including any additional fees or charges, upfront to avoid confusion and build trust with potential clients.

10. **Tiered Pricing Based on Company Size or Industry**: Adjust your pricing tiers based on the size of the client's organization or the industry they operate in. This ensures that pricing is fair and competitive while still reflecting the value of your services to different types of clients.

By implementing these pricing and packaging ideas, you can make it easier for potential clients to understand the value of your skill assessment services and choose the package that best meets their needs.

Job placement

Job placement services can be sold in various forms, depending on the business model and the preferences of the service provider and clients. Here are some common ways job placement services may be sold:

1. **Packages**: Job placement services can be sold in package form, where clients purchase a bundle of services for a fixed price. These packages may include features such as resume writing, interview preparation, access to job listings, career counseling, and personalized job matching. Packages can vary in terms of scope and price, catering to different needs and budgets.

2. **Subscription-based**: Some job placement services operate on a subscription basis, where clients pay a recurring fee for ongoing access to job placement assistance. This model often provides continuous support, including regular updates on job opportunities, networking events, and career coaching sessions.

3. **Commission-based**: In a commission-based model, the job placement service charges a fee based on a percentage of the candidate's first-year salary upon successful placement. This fee is typically paid by the employer who hires the candidate. This model incentivizes the job placement service to find high-paying positions for their clients.

4. **Lump Sum**: Job placement services may also be sold for a lump sum fee, where clients pay a one-time payment for a specific placement service. This could include services such as executive search for senior-level positions or specialized recruitment for niche industries.

5. **Pay-per-Service**: Clients may have the option to pay for specific services à la carte, such as resume writing, interview coaching, or access to job databases. This allows clients to tailor their investment based on their individual needs.

6. **Retainer-based**: In this model, clients pay an upfront retainer fee to secure the services of a job placement agency exclusively for a specified period. The agency then commits to dedicating resources to fulfill the client's recruitment needs during that time frame.

7. **Performance-based**: Some job placement services offer performance-based pricing, where fees are tied to specific outcomes or metrics, such as the number of successful placements or the time taken to fill a position. This model aligns the interests of the client and the service provider towards achieving mutually beneficial results.

Each of these forms of selling job placement services has its own advantages and considerations, and the choice of model may depend on factors such as the target market, industry norms, service offerings, and the competitive landscape.
