You’ve been sitting on this draft for months. You want to hit send, but now you’re second guessing yourself… Why does reaching out to someone you respect and admire have to feel so awkward?
Maybe you’re asking for a job and you’re afraid you’ll get turned down and the relationship will suffer as a result.
Maybe you’re reaching out to someone who has the job of your dreams and you want insight on how they got there, but you don’t want to inconvenience them with trivial questions.
Either way, you’ll leave this episode with confidence to not only send the email but assurance that you crafted a clear, concise message that the person you’re reaching out to will respect you for.
In this episode:
- How to do your research prior to writing the email
- How to create a clear ask so your message is unmistakable
- How to choose the appropriate medium: email, phone, text, etc.
- The 3 things the person you’re reaching out to wants to hear
- A sample email you can use a template for your next introduction
