Foot in the door
When you put a foot in the door it can't close all the way. And that's where today's phrase comes from. It's literal in origin and the figuratively. Today there are many ways we use the phrase. We use it to indicate an introduction that is necessary, to start small and lead up to a bigger request, to learn something new that will hopefully lead to even newer opportunities, to keep a conversation going, etc.
