You have a powerful person on your side, so be strategic about how you take advantage of their recent generous offer. Rather than take them up on it right away, you should save it for later, when it will be much more valuable to you. And don’t worry—you’ll recognize that day when it comes! In the meantime, rely on yourself to get what you want. You can do it! Just because someone offers to do you a favor doesn’t mean you have to let them do you that favor.
