Today’s tip is from me and it’s about knowing when to ask for help and knowing that it’s okay to ask for it.
Join the conversation below and know how to submit a tip!
This is the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. We all get stuck. We all have challenges and we could all use a little bit of help sometimes. This is something I’ve slowly gotten better at over the course of my career. Early on though, I always felt like I needed to figure out things for myself, it was my responsibility. Ironically, it’s in those early stages when we could probably use the most help, but we don’t want to look weak or unprofessional. So, don’t make the mistake I’ve made and be too proud to ask for help. It’s what your manager is there for and there’s a really good chance that the people around you would enjoy the opportunity to help you out. You just have to ask. And now I’m going to practice what I’m preaching just a little bit. This podcast is still in its infancy, which means that it can’t really do anything on its own and on occasion has resulted in some sleepless nights.
The ambitions I have for this little baby show are pretty huge and delivering a new tip every single day isn’t easy, so that’s where I could use your help. Help me source some great tips. Heck, send me your tip. Even if you’re brand new in sales, I’m sure there’s something that you’ve learned that’s helping you that will certainly help others, or even just remind the grizzled veterans among us of an important fundamental lesson. You don’t have to be some keynote presenting thought leader to contribute, of course, those folks are always welcome. In fact, everyone is welcome. Hop over to this tips page at DailySales.Tips/28 or just click the link in your podcast player and on that page, I’ll have a link to the submission page with all the details I need to turn your short little audio clip into some great exposure and personal branding.
Feel free to share this with your friends and mentors as well. Encourage them to talk about a tip that has served you in your own sales journey. Thanks for your help!
