How can I help? It's a question that often swirls in the back of my head whenever I meet with someone and it's probably the single biggest reason that I've built so many powerful relationships in my life. I don't just sit idly by, I help when and where I can and I like to think that I do it often.
You see, I am a problem solver by nature. I like hearing about problems. In fact it's what stimulates the old cabeza to kick on, throttle up and start working. It's what I do best and I would like to think that my approach to brainstorming and creative problem solving adds value to the people I want to help.

Whether you have a friend that is struggling with some area in their life, maybe it's trying to find a job, dealing with a horrible boss or a troubled relationship, you can help. Maybe that person is trying to figure out how to take their business to the next level, get more customers or attract more talent to their team, you can help. There's literally tons of ways that you can add value, lend advice, offer your own solution and help someone with a problem or issue they are struggling with.
The question is, will you?
You certainly can't if you don't continually ask yourself and the people in your life..."How can I help?" The answer you receive just may be the Ripple that person is looking for.
