Life out of Death

Well, this is a left turn for me as far as a blog posting goes... but it addresses something that happened very close to me that has been on my mind a bit.

Girl’s clean water wish takes off after her death - US news - Giving - msnbc.com

Rachel was only beginning her life and had only turned the first few pages of what promised to be a truly amazing story to tell. Tragically, that book was closed only a few chapters in.

She began with a huge heart and a tiny wish. What sprung from it has only begun to touch the lives of thousands of people throughout the word. Both in her story, AND for the 15,000+ people (at the time of this writing) that will directly feel the effects of her kindness. I did not know her beyond a passing in a hallway, but for those that did, the impact of her untimely passing is beyond words.

I just wish that this world had the opportunity to read what awaited in the coming chapters.

First attempt at linking an article through a Chrome Extension... and to my blog. Let's see how this goes...

However, I found this article to be a great read on the importance of investing a little time in yourself and building out YOUR personal brand. Not your company, but YOUR brand. The company value will increase in parallel, and will appreciate having a strong asset on the team, but remember to take some time for yourself too!
