Ask, Ask, Ask


My awesome business coach, Dr. Linette Montae, posed a question on Facebook that I want to pose to you.


Question of the Day: What’s one thing you could learn from your high school self?


The thing that I can learn from my high school self is to ASK questions. I have always been very independent but as a teen I asked more questions than I do as an adult. Not just the “how does this work” type of questions but the “can I” and “will you” type of questions.


I have been procrastinating on sending emails and letters explaining my services and “asking” potential new clients for their business. I am a serial procrastinator but not in this area. Before the advent of the internet, I mailed many letters “asking” for a job and/or internship with positive results.  What happened?


Action Step:  Send at least 5 marketing letters (by email or snail mail) by October 7, 2013.


Training Topics:

  • Positive Youth Development
  • Foster Care
  • Life Skills/Independent Living
  • Transition/Preparing For the Future
  • Leadership and Advocacy
  • Academic Empowerment
  • Career Exploration and Workforce Development
  • Volunteerism/Civic Engagement


I would love to hear your recommendations on youth service agencies, schools, mentor programs, and churches that can benefit from my services. Thank you in advance.
