I have a client who gives me a hard time whenever I use the word “help” in describing his company’s services. “It sounds too weak,” he complains. And since he’s the client, by definition, he’s right.

That doesn’t mean I agree with him. In fact, I use “help” twice in the first three sentences of my website! While some have a bias against admitting it, help is something most of us need across many different areas of our work and lives.

I’ve found that asking for help has a couple of benefits: 

  • It gives us a good chance of getting the assistance we need, and
  • It gives someone else the chance to be of servic e by lending a hand.

May 2016 be a year of helping and being helped for all of us. And by all means, let me know if I can help!
