“If you don’t ask, you don’t get”

A lesson I learned when I was young was that if I ask, I might get a yes and I might get a no. If I don’t ask, it is impossible to get a yes. This week, this became my reality as I offered to do some pro-bono work to get in a 2-day training course worth over £1,5000. I was offered the ticket for a free as part of the scholarship opportunity for underserved communities. 
I was so proud that I took the leap and I encourage you all to as well.
Have a great week!
