I do some mentoring from time to time, helping up-and-coming professionals build their personal brands. Upon arriving home on 12/17 after a long drive north from Florida to Pennsylvania to spend some extended time with my wife and children, I opened an envelope that contained this card from a great young professional who just needed some simple counsel and a sounding board from time-to-time. This card made my day, week, month and year.
No matter your age, income, career or stage in life, we all need some affirmation now-and-then that who we are and what we do truly matters. This card did it. Know that you hold the power in your hands with a pen to do the same for someone else who’s been good to you.
