What if the only thing standing between you and your goals is ASKING?

What if you felt bold and courageous asking for anything–from funding to getting your partner to take out the garbage?

~Why we struggle with asking

~How to separate your value from your ask, and,

Like Oprah said, “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for,” so let’s explore impactful invitations that the world needs you to make!



In this episode, you will learn:

~The two types of value competing when you ask (11:59)

~Where and how the fear comes in (14:05)

How to Ask for What You Want [Podcast]

Love the insights shared in the How to Ask for What You Want podcast. As women, we are often hesitant to ask for our worth because we aren’t sure of our self-worth. We have taken on this passive, submissive role in our personal and professional lives that diminish our confidence to ask and ask big. One thing I’d like to add is we each have asking styles based off our personalities, so it’s a good idea to be aware if you’re an introvert or extrovert, if you’re a go-getter or mission controller, etc. to best understand how you approach and execute asks.

So insightful to consider the various personalities types and where we thrive in asking! Most importantly, there is no one-size fits all approach or execution, nor is there necessarily an advantage to any specific personality types. Thank you for the loving words, Brit!
