How Can I Help You? A Very Hard Question!

Friday I wrote a post about my biggest mistake when going to network meetings.

Inevitebly, once I fixed my mistake, I got this question:

“How can I help you?”

My answer? I didn’t know!

I didn’t know for months.

And then I realized I was leaving opportunities on the table. ¬†There were people who wanted to help me, but I didn’t know what to tell them so they could help me!

I started to come up with a better answer.

Check out this awesome post from January 2008 titled The Other Hardest Question: How Can I Help You? In it you’ll see my response, in an email, to that question.

How do you answer the question?

If you answered like I did, I invite you to think of a better answer.
