Today’s Career Tip of the Day: Contact one person you don’t know and ask for help.
Trying to make your career or business goals happen by yourself can be tough. There are many challenges, from learning new systems to understanding your market to figuring out how to break into a new career field. It isn’t easy, but you don’t have to do it alone.
I fully believe that networking is the absolute best way to find your dream job or build your business. But it can get overwhelming, which is why I suggest talking to just ONE person to start.
The best investment I ever made is when I reached out to a coach who was where I wanted to be someday. My career and business transformed almost overnight when I got the right coaching and mentorship for myself.
My coach made me dream bigger and really made me see all that I was capable of. That is why I highly recommend that you also get the support you need to help you become the woman that you are capable of.
Challenge: Reach Out to One Person You Admire & Ask for Help
Send an email, reach out on LinkedIn, or ask them in person. However, do not assume they will be willing to drop everything to help you for free. Ask them to dinner (and pay!) if they are local, seek them out at a networking event, or ask if they offer consulting calls if they are not local.
Learning from someone who has been in your shoes may give you the insight you need to level up and get past roadblocks in your career or business. And, you might just make a new friend in the process.
So, what are your career goals and who can you reach out to TODAY to ask for help?
