Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help

You don’t know it all. Seriously. You don’t know it all and neither do I. That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with people you admire.

These are people who can point you in the right direction when you need help. I try to surround myself with people like this in multiple areas, and I’m never surprised with how it pays dividends.

The most important person is my wife, Katie. She’s flat-out the best. I turn to her for advice on pretty much everything.

When I need some shooting, editing, or storytelling advice, I turn to a pair of videographers… Murrow Award-winner Jeremy Nichols and Emmy-winner Mike Loomis.

Finally, when it comes to marketing and public relations, Gini Dietrich, Stephanie Krol, and Dyana Flanigan.

I started thinking about this after lunch last week with Gini. Her blog is a must read, but as good as she is in cyberspace she’s even better in person.

An hour later, I left with my head spinning… all sorts of great ideas! It really made me appreciate all the great people in my life who are willing to help.
