How to Answer Almost ANY Question You Get

Have you ever asked someone a question and they assume they know why you’re asking so they immediately answer and you’re left in an awkward moment of, “well that’s great, but that’s not why I’m asking.”

I’m sure you’ve experienced that before and it can honestly feel a little annoying because you instantly feel like the person doesn’t care about YOU!

Here at GUIDE Culture, we teach a little technique that helps you answer almost any question you get so that you can avoid the scenario above.
