Erik frequently talks about the concept of asking for what you want. When it comes to careers, your personal life, business decisions, and everything in between, it’s important to make your needs and wants known. You never really know what you can accomplish unless you ask.
We make a lot of purchases on the American Express card because we use it to pay for all of our advertising. When it came to paying the bill Erik had to find ways to work around the daily payment limit. Sometimes he would make multiple payments, and sometimes he would pay it over the course of a couple of days. He decided to call his banker and ask if it would be possible to increase the daily payment limit, and he was happy to hear that it was – all he had to do was fill out a form. He has made other requests from vendors that we work with, and often those have worked out too.
You never know what can be done if you don’t ask.
