I’ve been thinking about friendships a lot over the past few days. I’ve decided that honestly, I’ve got the best group of friends that a gal could ask for. That includes my old friends, my new friends, my online friends and my biz related friends. Each and every one of them are just wonderful.
In the past six or so months, I’ve really had some awesome support from my friends. When I went through that crazy stalking shit, they were right by my side. When I started my own biz, they were there to support me. And now that my friends are going through some things of their own (separation pending divorce, new business jitters, being up for an entreprenurial award) you better believe that I’m right there for them!
I think my favorite part of friendship is when we can get together (or over the phone or blog or email or whatever) and just share ideas. To just talk about what’s going great or might not be working in our lives or our business, and share those out-of-the-box ideas…awesome. Nothing can pump this gal up more than chatting with her friends.
A week or so ago I reached out to a newish, biz-related friend (a fellow LWLer). I had a question about being an expert (Millie) at our upcoming LIVE event. When she replied to my email, she not only addressed my particular question, but she also said that I should give her a call because she had some ideas about my business. She had unsolicited ideas to help me make my business a success…Come on, how great is that?!?
I think it’s a great thing when we can all stop thinking about others as our competition and just show support when we can. There’s more than plenty to go around. I like to tell folks all the time that if they like me, they’ll like my friends. Expanding on that, if you like the way I do business and help you, then you’ll also like how my friends do business and help those they know.
There are so many little things in life to be grateful for. At the top of my list…my friends!
