The Art of Asking (Part 1)

(AN ADVANCED LISTENING LESSON)

Is it difficult for you to ask for the things you need? If you’re anything like me, then asking for help isn’t exactly … easy.

Amanda Palmer is a musician and performer, and she famously had the most successful musical Kickstarter campaign ever! She asked her fans to support her when she needed it, and they did.

She believes that we need to change the way we think about asking for help.

This lesson is based on her TED talk, The Art of Asking.

I hope you enjoy this lesson and think about how her ideas might apply to your own life, and reaching out to the people around you for the things you need.

Enjoy!
