Ever get asked that question, or its close relatives? –
- Can I pick your brains?
- Can you check for typos?
- What would you do?
- Which design do you prefer?
- You’re the expert – tell me what to do!
All that stuff, if you’re open to it, can be a lethal time-and-energy sap that leaves you exhausted and penniless.
It can be an opportunity to recalibrate your relationship with the questioner, and show them how you can support them through your paid programme.
Which is it for you?
