As the year is ending, I have been thinking a lot about F.E.M and the direction I am going or want to go. I feel that everything is falling in place and since I am solo at this time, I am not dragging anyone down with the inconsistencies. Once everything is in place or closer to that place then I will start building more connections.
Connections are important for me because I learn from other people and it ways those connections become my mentors. I see what others can do and I know that I can do it too. I see successes and it makes me want success too. I’ve never been one to just be happy with where I’m at, I always want more. Of course, my budget and schedule and family life have other plans, but I still strive for more.
Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful for where I’m at and I am only moving forward, but I see more for my future and for those around me. That is why it is so important for me to build those genuine connections so I can offer the best services and to really find the voice of my client and to hone in on that voice. Everyone is so unique and special it’s easy to do.
How important are connections to you and your life or business? I dislike the saying, “It’s not personal, it’s business.” That couldn’t be farther from the truth. I understand the sentiment for larger companies, or corporations, but it is personal. Even my 9 to 5 job is personal, that is where I am able to support my family, build working relationships and learn processes and leadership skills. F.E.M is personal all the way around, a startup surrounding the unique individual-ness of people! I would say that is very personal, wouldn’t you?
