5 minute favors

I’m a big fan of the 5 minute favors rule. Basically, if someone asks you for a favor that is only going to cost you five minutes of your time and doesn’t compromise your values, do it. It is sort of an automatic pay it forward policy.

Usually in business, this 5 minute favor involves some form of networking. “Hey, can you introduce me to so and so?” “Do you know the hiring manager at a company you used to work for?” etc. I’ve done many of these requests and will happily do many more.

Today, however, I’m asking you for a five minute favor. My Marketing Foundations class has created a ten question survey that will take about five minutes to complete (see link below). Will you please do me a five minute favor and take the survey?

Shopping Survey – thank you in advance.

One more favor, and this one will take less than five minutes. Please like and share so that we can get as many respondents for my class to analyze.
