Networking on the Job

Are you among the 132 million* USA adults holding down a full time job? Or perhaps you are in the mix of 27 million* with part time jobs? Or maybe you are self-employed? Whatever the situation, congratulations you have a job and an income stream. But this is not the time to get cozy and feel secure. You need some insurance to protect your career and your financial future. I’m not talking about life insurance. I’m talking about professional networking.

A Letter is Better

Southworth Supports “A Letter is Better!” Campaign

When I think of Valentine’s Day, one of the first things that come to mind for me is the cards – the racks upon racks of greeting cards that start pouring into the aisles of retail stores immediately following New Year’s.

We live in a digital world. We communicate digitally every day don’t we? Can’t we just email or, better yet, text our loved ones on Valentine’s Day to tell them how important they are to us? Well I guess we can, but does it really mean the same? Isn’t it the effort that makes it meaningful, the idea that someone took time and put thought into it that really makes it special to us?
