Trust but Verify
by Alex Charfen
One of the hardest things we do as entrepreneurs is ask for help. I know that for our personality type, asking for help is one of the hardest things we do because we need far more help than the average person. But any time we ask for help, it leaves us feeling vulnerable and exposed. That's why when you finally do go out and try and get help, I want you to trust the person that you're talking to. I want you to trust that they are who they are, but do everything you can to verify. In this podcast, I'm going to share with you the process that I use to go out and help get help from consultants and coaches and product suppliers from my company that I want you to use too. Because far too many entrepreneurs today are getting taken advantage of by people who claim that they can help in ways that they actually can't. And I think it's one of the biggest issues we're facing as entrepreneurs.
Far too often, entrepreneurs share stories with me of going out and trying to get help with an issue in their business and almost immediately feeling like they let themselves down.
One of the hardest things we do as entrepreneurs is ask for help. Even though we know we need more help than the average person, any request we make for help leaves us feeling vulnerable and exposed.
Over the past few weeks, I have had at least three friends tell me stories of consultants or coaches they have hired that have let them down, exaggerated their capabilities, and made up their backgrounds and credibility.
When it comes to getting help, let me share with you a process that will allow you to trust but verify and have confidence you will get the help you need.
