How Can I Support You?
It’s a really powerful question right? Suppose instead of exchanging business cards, or rambling about your business triumphs, the next time you find yourself speaking to another like-mind, you ask him or her this question. Ask each other.
I picked this up at a meet-up that I went to some weeks ago. As a way to get to know the people around us, we were asked to turn around and speak to someone we’d never spoken to, and ask them, “how can I support you?”
My ask was: “I’d like to learn about, and attend more events like this one.” She now fires me a message on Facebook every time she hears of one, which helps a great deal with my development. How much better is that than just bragging about ourselves!?! It has real utility and real impact. I love it!
Consider that if you might. Next time you are in a similar situation, surprise someone and ask how you might support them in whatever it is they are trying to overcome and/or accomplish. Worst case, you will make a real connection with someone.
So today I wanted to ask you all, How Can I Support You?
Some examples might be…
- I’d like to run a business idea by you
- I need an accountability partner
- Answer a question
- Produce more content around …
I see this email list as my core people. The people I stand the best chance of making a difference for. And so if I can be of any extra utility to you, please do not hesitate.
Good luck out there!
