January 8, 2008. The Other Hardest Question: How Can I Help You? I was about 18 months into my business and networking like crazy. Meeting lots of people, becoming a “power connector,” and having fun.
But people would ask: how can I help you?
And my response was usually something like “nothing for now, I’ll let you know.”
It was a bad answer, because people wanted to help me, but I wasn’t letting them help me! Crazy, I know.
Here’s my post about it, where I actually answered in a much better way: How Can I Help You?
My advice to you: figure out how to best answer that question (and it’s variations). And maybe you, too, can find out how close you are to Mr. T (read the post for more :p)!
