Some people might give you carte blanche, but you have more chances when it is support you ask.
Support happens when you have a plan, a target you want to achieve, some ideas on how to achieve it, and you need somebody to be there with you, along the way. Support is somehow conditional. Not conditional on you getting there, rather conditional on you staying the course.
Carte blanche lets you wander, support gives you focus. Always be mindful what you are asking for and whom you are asking to.
