Stop Going for the Ask ⛔

The more I put myself out there the more connections I make and the more messages I receive ✉
I really do enjoy connecting with new people and I’m happy to help and answer all questions.
But at times when I’m super busy, I only glance at my messages than I divert a lot of inquiries to my team members so they can respond quickly.
The other day was one of those days where my inbox was getting flooded but one stood out and caught my attention 🙄
It was from the @therealmrmarcelle and he did something very different 👌
He led with offering a gift instead of jumping into what he needed.
It was original and caught my attention so I responded 👍
I’m not saying that you have to do this but if you’re trying to get a hold of someone that you believe can add value to your life or business then chances are a lot of other people are doing the same.
Try to be different and stand out. It goes a long way.
What am i talking about?
Many people reach out
Asking me for help on social media
Here lays the problem
Their intent is for personal gain
These inquiries go straight to my team
I ignore them
If you want to gain the attention of someone…
Offer them something to their own benefit
This will open up a conversation about how you can help them & their own mission. This person will then be willing to return the favor and help you with your own.
