Life is dynamic and challenging! Wouldn’t you agree? It’s filled with ups and downs, joys and sorrows, successes and failures. Professionals lead incredibly busy lives and often struggle with keeping life in balance so that we can ultimately experience a sense of ease, grace and power, as well as fulfill our dreams. In order to be our optimal self, there must be a sense of order with support resources in place to help us get through it! No one can do it alone! Oh, yes, this bears repeating: no one can do it alone!
This is where building your own personal network comes in! It’s not just about going out and “networking”. Rather, it’s building a strong personal and professional network, much like creating our own personal Board of Directors. One of my friends always chimes that she is a proud member of my “Marie Team”! I am very grateful for my team or “Personal Board of Directors”. All of the answers and support I need are with me, and several have been on my team for many years. They lift me up, tell it straight, and are reliable over time.
