I was once asked what was easier than I thought it would be as I have grown my businesses.

My response, “How easy it was to connect with people I thought it would be impossible to connect with and how willing they were to help.”

It can be intimidating to reach out to people you admire.

Afterall they may say no or you may never hear a word back from them.

Nevertheless, there are far worse things that can happen to you in this world than being ignored or told no.

The flip side is that it only takes one connection to change the course of your life forever.

It only takes one mentor, coach, or tidbit of advice to catapult you to the next level.

Recently, I sent an email to an author I admired for his ability to churn out content.

I sent the email and then forgot about it because I may never hear back from him and I don’t fault them in the least for paying no attention to me.

A few days later I find an email in my inbox:

“Shoot me your questions :)”

Another connection made.

Now it is time to nurture it.

Before you think something can’t be done try it.
