Don't be afraid to askA number of books and my own personal experience have taught me not to be afraid to ask for something.
I've acquired a number of new clients just because I've asked for their business. Yes, the possibility of rejection is scary but like the homely looking guy who asks scores of beautiful women out for a date, it just takes one yes to make it worthwhile. Now I'm not promoting dating in this line of logic just the idea of persistence and courage.
That brings me to my next favor. If you are a reader of my blog and value its content, would you ask people you know to read my blogs for a couple of days. Hopefully, those new readers will enjoy the content too and perhaps even consider the possibility of becoming a new client. O.K., enough of the shameless plug.
Asking for something can really improve your quality of life. From asking for something at a restaurant to negotiating the price of a product or service, you don't know what you might receive in return if you don't summon the courage to at least ask.
