Absolutely love it!!!!

276 Networking

It’s my first time listening to this podcast and OMG I just want to say Thank you!!!!! I currently do a lot of networking it was a challenge at first getting out of my comfort zone.Special after COVID we all basically became introverts. Listen to this particularly episode is exactly what I need to hear. I recently found my purpose. And well sometimes it gets difficult because I feel like my 9-5 interferes with it. I am an accountant for a small industrial company & I love fashion. I currently started getting involved with helping other designers backstage in fashion show’s and doing that makes me feel like I’m home.♥️
