How to Ask for Help


From starting a new business to getting donations for non-profits to needing a reference, we all look for formal help on a regular basis. Actually getting such help is crucial, but it’s hard. This presentation will cover ways to improve your odds of getting the help you’re asking for, such as choosing how to phrase your requests more specifically.

I routinely get requests to write about products, to help new freelance writers get started and to even to write for free. I’ve also made my fair share of requests. This presentation will be based on those experiences.
