Director of Sales and Marketing for The Retail Observer
The tried and true adage, “family comes first”, is something we’ve all heard, and even I have repeated from time to time myself. But sometimes we let our work consume us and we become unbalanced in other areas of our lives that are just as important to grow and nurture—namely, our family.
Family is defined as any group of people, closely related by blood, such as parents, children, uncles, aunts, and cousins. “Family” is also used metaphorically to include your community, nationhood, global village and humanism. In some cases, we even consider our employees or business partners a part of our family.
I am planning to take more trips this year, but this time not for business. I will go see my children and their spouses, and to spend time with my grandchildren. It’s about time that I make time to stay connected with the people that mean the most to me—my family.
As I keep my family in the high priority that it deserves, I will, of course, continue to take passionate care of my business, as many of you have now become part of my “other” family.
