If you don’t ask, the answer is already No

Written by Allison Wolf

Think about it.

What could make a positive difference for you?

What would you really like to ask for but are holding back on?

Working a day from home?

Taking a sabbatical?

Proposing a shift into a new practice area?

Getting a big bonus?

In the past months, I coached clients to ask for these things and more and guess what?

They were all successful.

They were successful because they accessed the courage to ask for what they needed.

Remember, if you don’t ask the answer is already No.

Reach for the opportunity, don’t give up before even trying.
