They say it’s networking, rightfully so
With cellphone, texting, LinkedIn, Zoom in tow
Paying-It-Forward has been the motto of most
Weighing in my favor, not to boast.
I do give back, don’t get me wrong
But your words of encouragement are a melodic song.
Bouncing ideas off you gave me thought
As to where I might go to connect that next dot.
A core group of network buddies, I consider friends
Sharing your ideas from a different lens.
So, so important to have your own “tribe”
Providing a unique, focused but creative vibe.
Too many “yes” people a good business does not make
Laying the truth on the table eliminates the fake.
So back to my team, I want to thank you profusely
For always being present and talking in truths to me.
What a challenging world! We’ve had to cope.
You especially have shown up with smiles and hope.
Thank you! Thank you! From the bottom of my entrepreneurial heart
Here’s to this upcoming year heralding all a brand-new start.
