From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Ask

"Do you want to think bigger about who you are and what you offer the world? Of course you do. Then you need to do the work, but you shouldn't do it alone. That's why you must be able to ask. Laura's book will show you how to do so with grace and strength. Highly recommended."
?Michael Port, New York Times bestselling author, The Think Big Manifesto

"Laura gives great examples of how to make each Ask a positive experience for the asker...and the person being asked."
?John E. Möller, director, Office of Protocol,The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

"People are more involved and more passionate than ever about causes in their life and reaching goals, yet most still are not very good at the most important part: asking for what they want! This book offers comprehensive but practical advice on how to connect with, convince, and inspire people to help you succeed in your goals?whether it's business, charitable, personal, or any aspect of your life."
?Paulette V. Maehara, president and CEO, Association of Fundraising Professionals, Alexandria, Virginia

"This book is a clear road map for initiating and making the Ask in the not-for-profit and business sectors. As the president of an executive recruitment firm, I see this book as an invaluable resource for planning your career and landing your best job."
?Gail L. Freeman, president, Freeman Philanthropic Services, New York

"Laura is the wizard of strategic fundraising, and this is a guidebook for all of us to use in everyday matters?whether it's asking for a raise or negotiating with our partner."
?Donna Weaver, founder, WeaverWorks, Yardley, Pennsylvania and former corporate communications executive in the apparel industry
