The Queen Of Ask
Zoe...she’s unemployed, has food requests and in her mind, she has a personal chef. Pizza and salad ?
Zoe...just because her parents work from home, she has “outside” requests. Side note: she sings Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes during her parents work hours so they’d probably rather take her outside.
Zoe asks for what she wants. Sometimes the answer is no, but it doesn’t stop her from asking.
Don’t stop yourself from asking. If you’re not doing the following, start immediately:
1. Share your goals and solicit feedback
2. Proactively communicate successes
3. Identify why you deserve and/or need what you’re requesting (do your research, think both strategically and long-term)
4. Consider how you’ll communicate your accomplishments, value and what your next steps will be if you hear “no.”
5. PLAY BIGGER AND ASK!
