It paid off.

I cold contacted two people, two BIG people. I asked if they could be my thought partner for just five minutes while at SXSWEDU this week.

The chance was slim at best. I assumed they would never respond, that is the easiest way to deal with unsolicited requests.

They both said yes. I met both and they helped me think through a big idea.

Because of it this idea has grown and will be more impactful.

I was nervous as hell but had some notes so my stumbling would be less obvious.

One even told me to slow down a bit, I was talking too fast

What struck me most was there are so many who are willing to help, we just need to ask. Good ideas should be shared and worked on together. We need to stop eating our own dog food much.

Now I am searching for my next thought partner!
