I was chatting with two friends recently. One was really struggling to connect with individuals in her field and receive the help she wants as she changes careers. My other friend has the opposite experience. He was moving from a tech to a strategy role and had an abundance of advisors sharing great insights.
So what’s the difference? As it turned out, my first friend asks for fairly big favors from the start, while my second friend asks for easy, little things and builds from there.
Something to think about as you approach your next potential connection.
Have a great day,
