There's simply nothing you can't do if you're armed with patience and perseverance. Other folks have found success by pressing hard, but you don't need to do that to get what you want right now. Instead, sit back and wait for things to come to you. If they're taking too long, get out and ask around. Find out what promises might speed things up. But avoid confrontation or pressure tactics. After all, it's like the old saying goes: You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
