Last week I was approached by someone I know through one of my businesses. I don’t “know” this person like a friend but I do occasionally chat with them about things. There have been times when I have been asked some in depth questions about how I run my business – where I find my vendors, how do I market, social media advice etc. I know the Care Bears say, “caring is sharing,” but there has to be a limit.
My friend, Siri who is am amazing jewelry designer and creator shared this video by Marie Forleo with me. Siri is a business buddy and friend and she and I share a lot of tips with each other. It is so wonderful to have someone that I can bounce ideas off of and/or share with. But, I do not do this with everyone!
So, you decide who to share with and how much. That is so empowering! You work hard to create your brand and build your business. I look at it like this. My business is my house and I wouldn’t give away the bricks that hold it up )I am such a visual person that everything comes with special imagery). Take care of yourself and you can take care of others.
