Valentine's Day - A Professional Boon

Valentine's Day does not have to be for lovers only.
Nor does it need to begin with Hallmark or include a box of chocolates. While there's nothing the matter with any of these things, Valentine's Day can also be a professional boon for YOU.
Who has supported you over the past year? Introduced you to a new client? Given you business? Teamed up with you for what became a successful, profitable project? Listened to you when you were down, confused or overloaded? Contributed to a cause about which you're passionate? Applauded your efforts privately or publicly? Became a trusted friend...?
Valentine's Day is a perfect time to call, send a hand-written note or write an email thanking those people in your professional sphere for supporting you in whatever way they did.
It doesn't have to take a long time to connect, but
your heartfelt efforts will have long-lasting results
both for the receiver and the giver - you.
