On Monday I asked my social media community to do the following:
“Hit “reply” and share your best business tip for 2021.”
I asked everyone to give a tip that really takes into consideration 2020 and what’s happening in the world today. I received a lot of great responses from all around the world (my favorite part) and am sharing them here with you.
Focusing on the needs of each other and showing more kindness and empathy seemed to be the primary theme in most of the responses. Take a look and let me know what your take-a-way is.
If you didn’t originally respond to my question on social and would like to add your thoughts and best tip for 2021, by all means please do so in the comments below.
