Who’s Encouraging You?
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Jan, 2011
Encouragers – they thread themselves through the needle of our lives, stitching together our tatters when we find we are fraying. In your business, your career or your life, do you have your encourager team in place, those whom you tap into regularly or as-needed, people who will resuscitate you when you drift into unconsciousness, who will perk you up when you are down, who will compel you into traction when you are inert?...
