Hey, would you take a quick look at my #Linkedin Profile?

I get this request all the time. Flattering, yes, but I do not dispense my secret sauce for free.

secret sauce

It reminds me of a great article a colleague once sent me, “No, You Can’t Pick My Brain. It Costs Too Much.”

I can, and will, make the decision to offer my brain pro bono.

But if I turn your request down, (and sorry, treating me to lunch or dinner will not work, but nice try!), I hope you will now better understand.

It’s not personal.

The article is almost 4 years now but still rings true. It’s worth reading and implementing.
