I’m not trying to toot my own horn or anything, but I have some pretty incredible friends.
There’s the branding and marketing expert, Maya J. There’s Brooke, the genius of knowing how to get guaranteed call backs for job interviews. Barbara has her own public relations company. Bianca has her own nail business. The crazy thing is that they’re not even half the amount of brilliant people that I have in my personal network.
Last week I called up one of my friends about 5 different times. I picked her brain about how to perfect a document I was working on. This weekend I helped the same friend with a website. We traded our skills and talents. We learned from each other.
I know we each have our own professional network, but a lot of times we forget to take a good hard look at what our own personal networks have to offer us. So ask yourself: Who are the people in your personal life you’d like to like to learn from?
