I love my girlfriends. They come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it’s not easy to detect what we have in common, but be assured there is a strand that connects us. And just like a loose thread on the hem of your dress, relationships need to be carefully trimmed and not pulled.
I’m quick to say I can’t handle any new friends. It’s a lot of work building and cultivating new relationships. But just when I say that, I meet someone and discover a new “thread” I never knew was in my dress. And that’s what happened during my trip to NYC a couple of weeks ago. I met some new girlfriends. Actually they are business owners, Carol of Graphic Image, Mary of The Printery, and Jacqueline of Mrs. John L Strong. What a dynamic group of women! I didn’t have a chance to see Lauren of Dempsey & Carroll this trip, but Jenine stepped in to make me feel right at home on Lexington Avenue.
I don’t think I have to tell you the common thread that connects us…but in case you can’t figure it out…it’s fine paper and leather goods. Meet my new GFBs, Girl Friends in Business.
