It’s almost Thanksgiving here in the U.S. – a day where we signify our gratitude for our blessings in life (originated as a day to show gratitude for a good harvest). I’m feeling especially grateful for my own “harvest” of sorts – that of a tremendous network of industry colleagues and friends. In the last few weeks I’ve been given such selfless gifts from my business network and I’m feeling really blessed to know – and have the respect of – so many very smart people.
People have given me their time, advice, new ideas, referrals and references that have really wowed me. I only hope that I can return the favor in some way now or in the future, if I haven’t already paid it forward in the past.
Take care of your network – lend a hand, an idea, an hour to brainstorm. Give when you don’t need something. The rewards will come to you when the time is right.
Thank you to those who have helped me recently with a phone call, product review, advice, connection, referral and more. Marc, David, Kevin, Steve, Parker, Sue, Yan, Chris, Si, George, Carter … you know who you are, and I’m grateful to know you.
