How I Got a Celebrity to Record a Birthday Video For My Mom

Kimberly Rich
Any time you give someone the opportunity to tell you no, you also give them equal opportunity to say yes.

Don’t you love that? It shows how much opportunity and possibility you invite by just asking people for what you want. 

Let me give you an example.

Last week was my mom’s birthday, and I wanted to do something really special for her. The standard jewelry, flowers, card, blah blah blah, it just wouldn’t do. Not only is she my mom (bless her) but she’s also been one of my biggest supporters since launching The Bold Life Movement. 

No. A regular gift wouldn’t cut it. It had to be something unique. Something bold.

Then I thought of the one thing that she couldn’t go out and buy for herself. And once it came to me, I knew I had to make it happen. That "thing" was a personal birthday message from one of her favorite actors. Preferable format? Video.

To explain how I ACTUALLY pulled this off, I recorded a short Facebook Live earlier this week and laid out the whole thing. The intention behind the video is to show what is actually possible WHEN YOU JUST ASK for what you want. People will often surprise you.

This concept is so near and dear to me, that I have an entire chapter dedicated to it in my book

Whether it feels like a "big" ask or a "small" one (this obviously varying person to person) there are so many ways in which you can politely, and elegantly ask people in your life for what you need, or what you want.

Be it your boss, your spouse, your friends, or the flight attendant, typically you're imposing far less than you think.

I hope this message inspires you to go out and GET what you want this week. I’d love to hear about it! 

So go ahead, leave a comment below!  And tell me:  

What is something in your life this week that you can ask for?

Or in other words, how can you let people help you?

Where can you give them the opportunity to say yes?

Leave a comment and let me know!

Hugs & Love,
