My mother used to say, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” I’ve always tried to take this advice to heart and create a good professional habit to ask for more. Of course, it’s hard, but if you don’t ask for more then all you get is a paycheck— you’ll never be satisfied, and it will never be enough. Ask for more time, ask for more creativity and ALWAYS ask for more money. Dream big — if you want a pony, ask for a unicorn. And when the Universe provides you with more just say, “Thank you, more please.” All you you have to do is ask.
