Don’t have time to watch? Here’s a RECAP:
1. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want.
“The worst they can say, is no.” Ask others for what you want and need–you’ll be surprised at how willing they might be to help. But remember, don’t just think about WHAT you want–think about the HOW behind implementing what you want.
2. Use your contacts to make more contacts.
“Someone you know probably knows that person.” Take advantage of your network. Each member in your network has a network of their own. Your contacts will be able to help you make new contacts. Like #1, don’t be afraid to ask those in your network if they know anyone who… or if they know a contact at… You’ll be surprised at how quickly your network will grow when you use your existing contacts to make new contacts!
3. Be consistent.
#1 and #2 are more likely to work in your favor when you are consistent in what you do. Be consistent in:
– Creating and delivering your product or service
– Building and maintaining relationships
– Branding yourself and your creative business
