2. Ask for help
Don’t be afraid to ask for advice. I feel this is a really important point. It doesn’t matter how long you have been in an industry or how successful you are – asking for other people’s opinions is a positive thing.
It is not a weakness and doesn’t mean you don’t know what you are doing. Sometimes it is helpful to get another person’s point of view on a situation. Even if it’s having a chat with your group of girlfriends over a coffee or organizing a meeting with colleagues to discuss an idea, people on the outside of a situation looking in may make points and highlight things that you have not noticed yourself.
Asking questions and taking in different angles/points of view on a situation is a good skill to have and you can build even better ideas.
You need to build up your knowledge as you can’t be an expert on absolutely everything, so asking for advice, particularly from industry experts, can come in very handy.
