Building Connections

Life is all about relationships, personally and professionally.  Lately, I’ve been giving life and career transition workshops that focus on how to ease through change. The most frequently stated fear by my individual clients as well as men and women seminar attendees is loneliness. People are afraid to be isolated or cut off from others.

* Join groups, clubs or associations where you are likely to meet like-minded people.
