“Whatever happened with Abbott Square?”
My cousin dropped me an email to check in on Abbott Square, a real estate property he had advised me about. I had completely forgotten to update him. Oops.
Whenever you ask someone for advice or help – whether it’s about something you need to do at work, finding a job, getting new business, or anything else – remember to keep them in the loop.
Of course, I said “thanks” immediately after Jason helped me out. I should have also followed-up after I took his advice. Everyone wants to know that you took the advice that they spent time giving you, and how it went. An update is also another chance for you to show your appreciation so they feel great about the time they invested in you.
How do you show appreciation to the people who give you advice?
