About this ebook

As women, we are allowed to ask for more. We are allowed to ask for different. We are allowed to ask for better.

And yet many women struggle to make requests that would help them, whether in their personal or professional lives, for fear that they’ll seem greedy, selfish or undeserving.

In The Gift of Asking, executive and personal coach Kemi Nekvapil breaks down our cultural myths around asking, and teaches:

– How to own your wants and needs, without guilt or apology
– Step-by-step processes to ask confidently for what you want or need, even if your knees are shaking
– What to do when the answer is ‘no’.

We are always worthy of the ask, and getting comfortable with it is a sure step towards feeling empowered and valued in all aspects of life.

Are you ready to start asking?

This book is very good in helping people understand that asking is about respect for self, for others. To ask is not to assume. In learning to ask right time, right circumstance, less prejudice based on past events, then answers are more likely to be surrendered. I listened to an audio version of this book on Libby: a local library app.
