I Wanna Pick Your Brain


I Wanna Pick Your Brain

You do? Really? You’re in the helping profession. You charge for the services you provide and they want to pick at your brain for free? Really?

When was the last time you heard someone say that to you? What exactly does it mean? Does it mean that the other person thinks they have a right to get your expertise because they suddenly befriended you? Does it mean that they think that since they’re only “picking” that it sort of like taking a bite or a lick or a taste that you offer for free? Well guess what – a taste of ice cream or truffles or Peter Lugers steak can add up to a LOT of calories and a huge expense. Are you leaving that money on the table by providing a basket of free bread and butter and then getting stiffed on the tip?

Of course you can pick my brain. But be sure to bring your checkbook because I don’t take credit cards.

Because it took you years to acquire what you know. It took time and effort and dedication. And you don’t give it away unless you’re getting something significant in return. Like getting paid.
