It's Time for a Change

From time to time I write a blog and I wonder if I’m being too real. I’ve learned that people respect perfection and I’m constantly sharing things to confirm that I am FAR from perfect. I want my clients to feel safe and confident in my ability to assist them so sometimes when I write a blog…like this one…I experience a bit of intimidation.

How to Make Friends as an Adult

My daughter is 12 and quite the introvert. She values relationships, but does not perform the commonly acceptable actions to initiate and maintain those relationships. I’m always encouraging her to reach out to people and express interest in what they’re doing. I want her to have friends, associates and later in life, a professional network. 

Today I was having a conversation with an old friend and she was telling me that she struggles to meet women as an adult. Once you’re no longer in school or playing outside with your friends, she asked, how do you create new bonds? Great question!!!! I gave it some thought and came up with a couple of ideas.

She just couldn’t understand how her flesh and blood could turn her down when she wasn’t asking for them to invest anything but their time.

This is such a familiar conversation. I’ve had it a million times. I myself have observed my family and friends sharing other coaches content, events and products on social media while not sharing mine. I’ve created campaigns and asked friends to share my posts or hashtag my events and received very little support. I used to get really upset about this, seemingly lack of respect, for me and my business until I stopped and really thought about why people don’t support their family and friend’s businesses. Here are the five reasons that I came up with:

I am a lover of pretty things. I’m not sure what it is, but being surrounded by color, design and gorgeous details increases my productivity. I am a collector of journals and notebooks. This is not something to brag about. I really need help. I LOVE journals!

When I show up at a meeting with pretty pink and gold planners and other necessities I get tons of compliments. People love that professional is no longer boring. I’m always asked where I find my cute office décor and stationary so I put together a list of my top stores for office and organization products. Here is my list in no particular order:
