Overcoming request shyness

Worship tells us a lot of her clients are reluctant to message people who they don’t know or haven’t met yet. “But if you take that approach you miss out on an opportunity to connect in ways that could be valuable for both of you. Don’t count yourself out of the game before you even get in….The worst-case scenario is that they don’t respond to you. Then you’re in the same position that you are now.” She adds, “When you’re sending cold messages, you may not always get a response, and that’s okay – don’t take it personally. So long as you’re approaching it authentically and connecting with people who you have a genuine interest in, you can’t go wrong.”
