Can I help you with anything?


Giving help is easy, but asking for it is another story. I know the feeling all too well. That's why I'm reaching out in this article to seek assistance as I explore new creative direction and design opportunities.


There I said it.


Asking for help feels daunting, but I know it’s crucial to finding the right career move or project for my business. It's tough but I'm learning the invaluable lesson of embracing vulnerability and the power of reaching out. Sometimes just a simple ask reignites the spark of possibility and opens doors of possibility. Here's some tips that I've found helpful;


  1. Be Clear About Your Needs: Transparency is key. Communicate clearly what you’re looking for and how others can assist you.

  2. Extend a Genuine Invitation: Let your network know you welcome their help and input. Genuine connections often lead to fruitful collaborations.

  3. Target Your Ask: Reach out to individuals who may have relevant opportunities or connections. Targeted requests are more likely to yield positive results.

  4. Offer Reciprocity: Networking is about building mutually beneficial relationships. Be open to offering support in return.

  5. Listen to the Beatles : )


If you come across any opportunities or know someone who might be able to assist me in my search, I’d truly appreciate it if you could pass along my information or connect me with the right person.


With sincere thanks.
