Don’t beg, rather pitch properly: Let’s face it, if you actually have a great product or event, you will not have to beg anyone to show up. Only problem is, when ideas aren’t sold properly they devalue you and will most probably make anything you send to be overlooked.
If you don’t have faith in what you are saying/ writing how can you expect anyone else to? When you are writing a blog post, a query letter, anything which you want to get results from, don’t write it unless you are feeling confident, strong and have faith in what you are writing. Take a break if you need to. Write a draft and then come back to it when you feel stronger and edit it from that point of view. Give everything you do a good chance to succeed!
