1. Just Ask. Often. For Anything And Everything.
This is the most important step: Ask for what you want. Otherwise, how would you get it? Every step of the way, ask people for favors, discounts, freebies, advice, resources, introductions, and help of any kind. Ask for the sale.

Make your own opportunity — don’t wait for it to appear.
3. Follow-Up. Again. And Again.
Persistence always wins out.

5. Do Favors
