I ran into a situation the other day, where I decided that I would not make a request to someone I do business with. We only recently began working together and I felt – in my mind – that what I was looking for was too much to ask for and too soon. It’s the Canadian in me… we can be very complacent, I’m told.
Funny enough…a few days later, through one of our conversations, this person offered up exactly what I had been looking for. It was by chance. Once it was out there; I told her that I would love it and that I had been contemplating asking her the same thing, but decided not to …the bit of advice she gave me was:
The answer is always no until you ask! The worst answer you will get is no, which leaves you at the same spot…odds are, you’ll get an answer to push you further towards your goals in life.
Great advice from a great business woman! Something I will definitely keep in mind as I continue on my path of running a successful Virtual Assistant business.
