It’s not easy to ask. And a lot of artists have a problem with this. Asking makes you vulnerable. ~ Amanda Palmer ~
Often when I post my Ted Talks I will change the title to reflect what I see as the main theme of the video. This week there is no need to do that. Amanda Palmer’s message is simple; learn to ask without qualifying the reason, learn to ask without making it a demand, learn to ask without shame and you never know what great things will happen.
Thanks to mi amiga Kris for suggesting the video this week.: And read more helpful articles about how to ask for help: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/07/business/07shortcuts.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0 http://tinybuddha.com/blog/how-to-ask-for-help-from-people-you-respect/ http://v1019.cbslocal.com/2014/06/12/the-power-of-the-question/ http://denadouglashobbs.com/2014/06/09/practicing-asking-for-help/ http://studio5613.wordpress.com/2014/06/05/not-really-at-all/
