It’s Not Who You Know…

You know the saying “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know,”    NOT TRUE!

I believe this mindset can contribute to an unnecessarily feeling of powerlessness if you become convinced that you don’t know the “right people”.

The truth is, it is BOTH “who you know” and “what you know”; combined with (most importantly) What you DO with the who and what you know.

Do the best you can to serve the “who you know” with the power of the “what you know,” and you will find yourself beginning to know more “who’s and what’s.”

Never accept defeat! Choose to courageously serve, learn, and grow and you will discover that opportunities will find you.
