This week I've had the opportunity to get to know a few group members a bit more over coffee. Having these conversations has reminded me that there is so much more to all of us than just what we see on the surface, on social media, or even in our day to day interactions.
The barista at your favorite coffee shop, the receptionist at your office, the agent on the other side of the transaction ... everyone has a story that is uniquely theirs and worthy of knowing.
It is easy when we are so busy rushing from this to that to miss out on the simple joys in life, the greatest of which is other people. Take a little time each day to get to know those that you are interacting with a little better. Ask an extra question, invite that agent to coffee or lunch after the transaction closes, say "hello, how are you" and really wait to hear the answer.
Let's start here. Share a bit about your story here in the comments. Be sure to tell us about your business, but tell us about YOU too. Where did you come from, where do you live now, what have you learned, what is most important to you. What do you love, and what drives you crazy.
Looking forward to learning a bit more about everyone!
