I am sure you have received this question before:

“Can I pick your brain?”

How do you answer?

This one has been hard for me since I LOVE helping people. I WANT to help everyone.

Above my desire to help is a bigger desire to make a freaking difference. That is what changes things.

My little rule of thumb for this is :

if I am talking to you already, pick all you want since I love this stuff. I also don’t expect you to carry threw on any of it. I know you will have the best intentions in the world, but in my experience only about 1% will do anything. If you are that 1% I will help you for free since I care about the changes you are making. Action > words

If you want me to take time out of my schedule and put on hold other things that I am doing to help others, you need to pay. It is not about the $$ it is about the commitment that involves paying money.

The above applies to people I don’t know. If I know you and we are friends, I will do whatever I can to help you as much as possible since there is a history there.

You know how to reach me
