Article SummaryX

Asking for help is easier if you can articulate your needs. You may want to make a list of what you need help with and rank the importance of each need by assigning a number from 1-10 to every item. Next make a list of people who could help you and match each person with a particular need that they are best suited to aid with. When asking for help, clearly state your need in a positive, self-confident way. Finally, when you do receive help, thank those who stepped up in a sincere and specific manner.
