Need help? Call!
Your network embraces your needs. Let them know.
When I plan for a trip (yes, PLAN!), I always wonder if my network reaches the destination. Whom I can be hosted by? Whom I can meet? Who can conect me to the one I need? Last but not least, whom I can call in an emergency? This list goes on…
However, I used to be nervous and hesitated before calling someone for support until I went to Hong Kong for MaD, met Andina, MC Indonesia. She told the group “If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO.”, lightened my way of asking. So far, I’ve asked many times, got some NO but those can’t compare to lots of YES. I always feel thankful for that.
And I say YES to many calls as well. 🙂
