The Bold Ask

Jim was a new Athletic Director at a university that was building a new stadium. Jim lined-up an appointment with a past donor to the school, known to be a crusty oil and gas executive.

Jim charged in with an aggressive pitch and boldly pronounced, “We need you to give us $1 million!”

This executive said, “Who in the world are you, again?” Although Jim only received $100,000, this executive told the Dean he loved Jim’s courage, and to send him again next time.

Jesus taught in Matthew 7:7, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

Although we need to be sensitive to the needs of our sales prospects, a bold ask can be effective.
