Have you ever had someone ask you, “Can I pick your brain?”
Oh boy! I have been crazy busy wrapping up my 30 days Bootcamp, IGNITE! Your Digital Marketing, I just opened the doors to The Sassy Entrepreneur and now I’m getting ready for my next program launch.
Not long ago, I had someone ask if I could meet them for coffee, being in a new town, I was more than happy to. What followed was a series of questions about how they could manage their social media. How do you do Reels? Can you take me step by step? What should I do…?
Do you get it? It had nothing to do with what I thought the intentions were, it pretty much a long consultation session and if you’re wondering, I didn’t share everything. There’s a fee for that!
This brings me to today’s topic on The Sassy Girl Entrepreneur Show…How to respond when someone asks “Can I pick your brain?”

You’ve gained a lot of expertise through your trials and errors and now that one question starts to be ask.” Can I pick your brain?”
