Save Your Asks: Evolve Your Networking Currencies. Grow Your Influence. Triple Your Business. (Paperback)
Save Your Asks helps people navigate the art and science of building mutually beneficial relationships in business.
The title is designed to address one of the biggest problems with business networking--people ask others for too much too soon instead of identifying the highest values they can offer to others and taking a patient, strategic approach to networking. In Save Your Asks, Chris Tuff features exclusive stories from interviews with some of the country's most notable networkers, including Nike's Alex Molden and Lydia Wickliffe Fenet, Vice President of Christie's. He's brought myriad perspectives to the "art of the ask," spending time with pro surfer Raimana Van Bastolear; diversity marketing consultant Kerry Klassic; and super-connector Quincy Jones, among others.
Save Your Asks goes beyond traditional networking advice, dismissing the events where time and money are wasted and instead focusing on the relationships that build a lifetime of wealth. Inspired by his own "ruthless pursuit of passions," Tuff explores how shared experiences and vulnerability can take readers to new levels in their careers and side hustles. It's a never-before-seen look on how to tap into the power of people to create meaningful connections for work, life, and play.
