    Creating Support Systems:
    The significance of building strong, supportive networks both in personal life and business to combat loneliness and promote a sense of community.

    Reframing Mindsets: The journey from feeling powerless to recognizing one's own power and capability to make changes, including setting boundaries and learning to say, "Not my responsibility," to avoid overextension.
