Today began with a great way to kick off this month’s focus which is on…relationships. Valentine’s Day is this month so perhaps it’s a bit cliché, but we’re in the relationship business so the focal point is to be expected at some point and there’s no better time than now!
I (Nancy) went to a breakfast this morning hosted by our friends over at Elevate, Inc. for Because of Ezra, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting neuroblastoma and childhood cancers, while searching for a cure. (Today is also World Cancer Day.)
In the room were other entrepreneurs, executives and government officials who came to hear Kyle and Robyn Matthews’ (founders of Because of Ezra) moving and powerful story. I was at a table with marketers and FBI agents. (That’s right, my table was on its best behavior – ha!)
Watching the interactions and hearing the stories told, I could see that instant connections were made and it reminded me of the power of serving others, sharing stories and being connected…relationships. This month we’re going to focus on relationships with our customers, the media and the interpersonal one we each have with ourselves.
In the meantime, below we leave you with some inspiration, motivation and intentions that are guiding us through 2014. And please visit: Because of Ezra to learn about this organization that is raising awareness for pediatric cancers and a cure.
Plus, don’t forget that this Thursday kicks off Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Let us know which collections are your faves!
