It can be really hard to reach out and ask for help and support. Some people have trouble with this because they want to see themselves as competent and having it all together.

Angel investor Maia Bittner joins this episode to explore why it can sometimes be so hard to ask for help and work through a few steps with Dr. Emily that we can all take to get more comfortable asking others for their help and support.
