I have learned that it is important to nurture your friendships and to always help others whenever possible.
This may not sound like a game-changer but supporting my long-time friendships has helped me in the running of my company in many ways.
For example, when I travel to speak or to attend conferences, one of my close friends is willing to check on my home and gather my mail while I am gone.
If I need to discuss a possible legal matter regarding the wording in a particular contract, I can call another friend who is a lawyer.
If I need someone to review a training document or article for publication, my best friend who is a ‘wordsmith master’ is always willing to proof my work before submission.
We women are fabulous at creating and nurturing relationships and building collaborations. Are you willing to help others so that someday they will be able to help you or someone one else – pay it forward!
