We have a culture where the act of asking is looked down upon. From folklore like ‘it costs nothing to ask’ to feeling less of oneself when asking.

We’d prefer postponing important work, betting on our luck or even abandoning projects rather than taking the initiative to ask!

Instead, let’s create an environment where asking has a connotation of increased respect, increase in capability ( 1+1>2) and a chance to allow others to support you!

This culture would be supported by embracing rejections and celebrating failures.

It all starts with you. Go, ask.
