How many times do you find yourself apologizing throughout the day? Do you say "I'm sorry" when it takes you a few hours to respond to an e-mail? When you start to speak at the same time as someone else? When someone else bumps intoYou might not even realize when you are doing it. I only realized how frequently I was apologizing after I literally kept a tally for each time I said it in the course of one day. I found, much to my horror, that there weres everywhere. My world-record number: fifty-three.
Nicole Lapin is a total boss. The financial expert and serial entrepreneur is the star of the nationally-syndicated business competition reality show Hatched and was the youngest anchor ever at CNN, before holding the same title at CNBC anchoring Worldwide Exchange, while contributing financial reports to Today and MSNBC. Um…NBD.
On my show Hatched I meet so many women who want to start a business. What they all have in common: They need money. So do all those ladies I know who are running a race for a charity or helping their kid's class go on a field trip. Believe me: There's a right way to raise it, and it starts with saying the right things. While planning my book tour, the clearer I was about what I needed my friends to do (like "host a book party"), the more willing they were to help out.
