Just a little note to say
Don't be afraid to ASK.
I asked a magazine for their editorial calendar, and by reaching out I got a feature coming in October. (Don't want to jinx it, I'll post it when it's up)
I asked Whole Foods buyers to take a chance on me. Most of them requested samples.
It's hard to ask for what you want when you know it could really be a boon for your business. Let go and just ask for it.
