    Key Points

    It’s essential for us to recognize that the most successful people ask for (and receive) help all the time.
    Say less initially in your interactions with influencers so that you can meet them where they are as the conversation progresses.
    When someone offers to help or to make an introduction, take immediate action to follow up.
    It’s important for us to have both mentors and advocates in our careers.
    Be memorable in a genuine way by making a human connection to the other party.
