Favorite Article of the Week II

Like many weeks, there are always opportunities for multiple FAWs. So, I will do a part II this week.

Shockingly the article “The Power of Your Network is the ‘Ask'” comes from the Harvard Business Review (HBR) blog section.

Reading the article, I was reminded of:

  • If you don’t ask, the answer is always “no”.
  • Asking exposes one to the possibility that the answer will be “no”
  • My time working in retail office and computer sales, ahh those sometimes awkward sale closing attempts.
  • The importance of providing value to people in my real, online (online only connection)  and blended network (real and online or online across multiple social media platforms).
  • It is okay and normal to ask. It does not make one a beggar, lazy, or incapable. If no one ever asked then where would the world be?

Happy Thursday.
