  1. Asking for money has always been an issue with me - a big reason why I gave up self-employment. I've been hassled a lot at work in the last 2 years to assist my European counterparts, which means more travel away from my wife and kids. The sub-boss of Europe has asked to meet with me tomorrow. I know he'll be pushing for me to increase my travel range outside the UK and expects it to be inside my current job setup. My equivalents based in Europe take-home salary is roughly double mine, but I hate confrontation and know I'll ask followed by a diatribe of useless information including some important points put across in a factual manner that will come across as demanding and arrogant. How do I do this successfully? Any and all advice would be appreciated note: they do not know I have ASD.
  2. Hey I'm Jacs and I work for Yimby - we help people to raise money to make good things happen. More and more people are using Yimby to raise funds for all sorts of autism related causes. A couple of recent ones include, raising funds for a full year of weekly private therapy for a child with autism, and raising funds to buy a dark den for a children’s autism group in north London. Seeing the success of these projects, we're thinking about how we can best use Yimby to really support the autistic community. Are there any particular financial challenges that the community faces? Might there be some autism support organisations that could particularly do with fundraising support? These are just a couple of questions we’ve thought of, but I'd love to hear any thoughts you have on this. Thanks! Jacs
