Today we live in a day and age where life has become a bit impersonal. You can connect with people without even meeting them face-to-face. It makes it easier to put yourself out there, so that if you are going to be rejected it doesn't have to be to your face. I have done both and doing it live is much harder and takes more guts than sending an email out into the cyber void. The reality is that some people will say yes and some people will say no. Others will challenge your inquiry, while some will welcome it with open arms. And the fact of the matter is that the more you flex this muscle the easier it will become. The 'yeses' will make you feel elated and the 'no's' will not sting as much over time. Tell me, do you have any tips to share on getting the courage to ask for what you want/need? Please share!
