Lucas’s Question or Topic
Lucas is a photographer. He has a Youtube channel where he documents his process. The main premise of his channel is called Value Shooters where he goes to a thrift store, picks up an undervalued camera, takes pictures with it, reviews it, and then gives it away to one of the people in the community after it’s all done. He also purchases things and flips them on eBay. His question for Gary is if it’s too early to go for the ask, given that he’s very patient and not in the rush.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Given Lucas’s mentality, Gary said yes, it’s too early for him to go for the ask. The longer he holds out for the ask, the better. Him picking up stuff and flipping them on eBay is almost paying for his ability to not go in for the ask.
