For an entrepreneur, connections are everything. There's nothing more powerful for building those connections than a personal, warm introduction. But asking for that introduction can be tough. You don’t want to come across as needy or annoying, but you do want to get a response.

At GrowthLab.com, where entrepreneurs go to launch and grow their online business, we get asked about this a lot. Often, instead of asking, many tip-toe around the question, trying to drop hints. (“So great you know so-and-so, I’m a big fan of his work.”). While, others say nothing at all. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Here’s a simple email combination you can use so your contacts will gladly open doors for you. The key is making the process as quick and painless as possible. You’re going to do all the work… all your contact needs to do is say “yes” and hit the forward button.
