Why You’re Not Asking For Help

“I was too embarassed to ask for your help.”

That’s what this person confessed to me after I asked why she didn’t ask for my help earlier.

The crazy thing is that this person KNEW what I do.

She knew that I help highly ambitious professionals sell their skills so they can get paid their true value.

Yet, she didn’t ask for help.

This paradox about Human behavior drives a lot of sales people crazy!

The Reason Why You’re Not Writing Your Cover Letter and Resume

I help highly ambitious professionals sell their skills and get paid their true value.

I do 30 mins strategy calls with them and often they tell me that they’ve been delaying writing their cover letter and their resume… for days (sometimes even weeks)!

First, credentials are important because it allows the hiring company to filter the job candidates (saving time) and just focus on the ones that have the “right” credentials (degrees, certifications, etc…).

Join This 10 Second Research on Cold Calling

I’m running this research after hearing so many people complaining about getting “cold calls” and having to deal with it.

Think about it – you get interrupted only to wonder who the hell is calling you.

Then you notice that you don’t even have that number on your contact list…

Please share it with others so we can get as many results as possible!

Thank you!
