Teamwork makes the dream a reality.
Have you ever heard of a raft of otters?
Sea Otters live their entire lives at sea and they are the ultimate team players.
When they need to rest, the Sea Otters gather together on a bed of seaweed and hold hands to stick together while they sleep.
Sea Otters! Holding hands! Forming their own raft!
Cutest thing ever, right?
You may be asking right now, “Super cute, Trish, but what do otters have to do with planners?”
Otters aren’t the only ones who need each other to get ahead.
Our best work happens when we are working together and supporting each other.
“Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.”
I know you have heard this quote.
BUT HAVE YOU ACTUALLY LIVED IT?
Society wants to tell us that bold, confident, successful women go it alone.
We get to the top on the backs of other people.
We must be strong and unflinching in the face of challenges.
Fun can be had and friends can be made after we have conquered the world.
And above all...don’t ask for help!
I don’t know about you, but that sounds exhausting.
I told you in my last email that I learned the hard way.
I tried to do it all on my own and I failed.
So I reached out. I outsourced, I networked. I asked for help and gave some in return.
Networking has catapulted the success of my business.
I now have a network that makes my business stronger and my work more fun.
I have people to ask questions to.
I am constantly learning new things.
I work out of my strengths and know who to refer others to, so they can work out of theirs.
I don’t have to say, “I can’t help you”. I now say, “I don’t know, but here is someone who does”.
Networking enables you to find the sweet spot of doing your best work, cheered on by others who are doing the same.
It’s a win/win all around.
