A walking-talking conversation about business, life, and personal development!

I had a business walking and bonding meeting with a friend this morning. It was fun, entertaining, and offered us a deeper connection and foundation to build relationships and business.

I enjoyed walking and listening to Life Leadership Personal Development audios.

This morning, I had an opportunity to walk, and listen to a live talk from my friend who told me her success story, her dreams, her struggles, and victories.

She is a great speaker, and I am a good listener. This made our walking exercice an exceptional moment.

“Walking is the best thing for human bonding since the smile,” said blogger Melissa Balmain from the Leadership Platform, a feature of the Total Personal Development program offered by Life Leadership, a premier leadership and personal development company, I presented to my friend.

It was cool this Saturday morning. Kids were everywhere. Walkers came and went in a debonair atmosphere. And we walked, talked, sat, watched the birds perching on the ripples effect of the pond.

This walking meeting loosened our tongues. When I asked my friend “what’s a perfect day for her?”

She poured her hands gestures into the air to tell me “A day with no worries, with no pending transaction.”

The oxygen-induced brain boost we’re getting from exercise (which has been studied, and reported by Melissa Balmain) helps get our words rolling.

My friend wants to keep her mind with her up to her 90’s. That’s why she said when “I feel stressed and overwhelmed, I interrupt myself, to laugh, to sing, to dance, and get back to my problems with renewed energy.”

This walking and talking moment was a form of travel. It built a fantastic rapport up to a point my friend told me she is so grateful in her life above all for her daughter that she’s not afraid of death.

“My daughter is there for me to see myself, to finish what I have started,” she said adding “I’m like Moses.”

This was an ordinary walk, but an extraordinary talk. It required no money, but just our presence, and care for one other.

It was just two people enjoying many perks of a shared conversation in an ambiance of interesting sights and sounds.

That’s why I like what I do for a living as a connector, and LIFE member. I make friends, find needs, and transfer feelings.

I help my friends, with their permission, to live the life they’ve always wanted by connecting them with a community of like minded people who enjoy having fun, making money, and making a difference.

That fires me up!

God bless,
