My friend Rozanne Gates is not afraid to ask for help. As the Director of Development for the Fairfield Theatre Company and a naturally gifted fund-raiser, Rozanne lives by the credo that we're here to use others and be used in return. "The only way we get to prove who we are and what we're made of," she explains, "is when we're asked to step up to the plate." With every molecule of her being, she believes that she's doing people a favor when she reaches out to them. She's giving them a chance to "strut their stuff."
As someone who has always been timid about asking for help, I'd love to be able to adopt Rosie's attitude.
