Asking sounds so easy - but for most of us difficult to do. If you are one of those people I hope this post helps to help you learn to master the skill.
I had no formal sales training, but early on I learned about the art of asking and why it was a skill to be mastered.

With the political season in full swing, #socialmedia   can be a source of community or a source of anxiety. Shutting it off periodically as I did last weekend when I was out at the beach is an option. So is understanding vetting, #trolls and the implications it all has on your #personalbrand  . Which is what I offer in this week’s edition, plus a few other items - just because I can. Your thoughts and feedback are always appreciated!

What you share on social media says something about your personal brand. So what happens when you don't vet the information you are sharing?

I used to believe in straight lines. This is what I know now.
I was raised to believe in straight lines. There were clues that straight lines did not really exist, but it took me a long time to realize they are a myth
