I'm that reliable, invisible friend, when you're working at 5 o’clock in the morning; you don't see me but behind the scenes there is someone that has thought about the resources, the materials and anticipated the issues in any given transaction to make your life easier.
I stay connected to my former colleagues because they are a wonderful resource to tell me what resources they need in their daily practice.
