Your Most Overlooked Resource?

It’s your healthy business relationships, boss.

Relationships Matter

Building and growing your business can feel lonely at times. That’s why we have always believed that community is an important ingredient to success. Surrounding yourself with the right relationships of every kind can have a huge impact on the work that you do and how you feel about it. From your business besties to your vendors, team, and customers – each kind of relationship you have needs to be built and nurtured so that you can be supported in the way you need most.

But have you actually thought about the relationship you have with your business? In this week’s episode of the Being Boss podcast, Emily discusses this very important relationship and how to tell if it is healthy or toxic. This week’s round-up of resources highlights all the different types of relationships you have in business and will give you tips for making the most of them.
