Flexible lifestyles require flexible work arrangements. Fortunately for me, I have been able to secure this sort of work. I recently looked through some archived business tips, that addressed how to get the most out of short-term work arrangements. So, with the benefit of hindsight, I thought I should review the advice!
Networking with integrity creates a greater willingness of all parties to be part of a human conduit to serve as energy and resource to one another. Sometimes you will give more than you receive and sometimes you will get back more than you give. It’s not about keeping score.
~ Chris London
In a world where the way business is done is changing all the time, business structures reflect this. Nothing is certain. Everything is open to tender, selection processes and agile responses. There is a greater emphasis on relationships between the people who make things happen. To that end, networking becomes a core competency. Do I hear you groan? Well, you can learn to love networking – and maybe it’s high time you did!

Recently I had some web-hosting issues that resulted in access problems – for you and me. One day I was merrily blogging away, the next I couldn’t get in and couldn’t work out what the problem was or why it occurred. Many hours of “online chat” and contact with the Support centre and I’m back. What surprised me was how much I missed it!
Truth is, I’ll never know all there is to know about you just as you will never know all there is to know about me. Humans are by nature too complicated to be understood fully. So, we can choose either to approach our fellow human beings with suspicion or to approach them with an open mind, a dash of optimism and a great deal of candour.

I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.
