Day 94: Ask a client to try something new!

September 30, 2014 ,

DAY 94

Day 94 of the 100 day challenge…asking the impossible, every day, for the last 100 days of 2014! (see the original challenge link here:

Today’s ask had to do with taking a risk. I presented a client with a new idea without any kind of forewarning or prior discussion. I put a lot of time into the presentation, based on my gut feeling that this would be a great opportunity for my client.

She might say no. That’s ok! I will grin and go on.

The point here is that I stepped out of my comfort zone: explaining myself too much ahead of time, or testing the waters beforehand. Most of all, I asked for something without being afraid of the word, NO! Bing! Bing! Bing! “Johnny, we have a winner!”

Fear, you can fuck right off.

If you weren’t afraid, what could you do with the last 94 days of 2014?

Come on, think bigger. Then act on it!
