It’s OK to hope that you’ll get a response.
You wouldn’t be contacting the recipient if you didn’t.
But expecting one is different.
You might not add enough value for that person.
It might not be the right time for that person.
That person might not see what you see.
That’s why you’ve got to give way more than you receive.
Because if you give away 10 great ideas, you’re lucky if 1 person acts on 1 of them.
But it’s not textbook math.
It only takes 1 to work.
