Ask and You Shall Receive

I've written a lot lately about my need to get more aggressive with my business.  To stop giving things away for free, to be more assertive about selling, to commit to it 100 percent.  And in the past week, I've learned a very valuable lesson: just ask.

It's really that simple.  Set your intentions clearly.  Speak them aloud to the universe.  And then go forth and DO.  ASK.

You can't sit around and wait for opportunities to fall into your lap.  You have to create them.  You have to get out there and ask, sincerity, graciously, but without fear or apology.

You'll be amazed at the results.


  1. Absolutely, Laura! What's the saying? "A closed mouth never gets fed." Great post.

  2. Fear is hands down the biggest thing that keeps people from moving forward.

  3. Hi Laura,

    Came via Allison's site! I'm a comment fairy. Love to drop in and leave messages. Yes, this is a biggie for small biz owners giving their "gifts" away and often to people who have good paying jobs but are starting a side business and expect the struggling small biz owner to give them a break.

    Makes no sense.

    You deserve to be paid!

    From my experiences, it's easier to sell products for a price that reflects your expertise and years of awesomeness than one that's underpriced.

    Good luck!
