Winning second place in a parents swim race might seem insignificant. That may cause many to shrug their shoulders and say ‘Yeah, so what?’

But, if you knew this parent had only learned to swim six years ago could you be any more impressed?

Yep, that was me, I wrote about my drowning experience in my Inc Magazine column few years back here.

What I learned this weekend was the incredible value or lack thereof of OTHER PEOPLES OPINION. As I was competing against other parents it occurred to me…

Have you felt something today has shifted? Tolerance, social connection, and spontaneous conversation has all changed. 

It is time to reset the communication expectations and reality. Going back to the office has caused a shift. Going back to socializing face to face has caused a shift. It requires a new reset for how we communicate. 

I’d love to hear what praise or recognition that  you are receiving. 

It isn’t all about the trophies…

Dedicated to growing your business,
