Make a Long Term Investment in Others

Jody Maberry Show Episode 300 Make a long term investment in othersValerie Cockerell returns to turn the tables and ask me three questions. She came prepared with questions that really challenged me to reflect on some of my own experiences. The conversion ends discussing the impact of our mom’s teachings and how they have influenced the approach to our careerers. This is a great one that really hits on the impact of meaningful relationships and making a long term investment in others.

Some of the key takeaways from this episode:

  • Prepare with Purpose: Women often come more prepared for interviews, knowing exactly what they want to convey. As professionals, it’s essential to approach opportunities with a clear understanding of what we want to communicate.
  • Think Long Term: Just like raising children, building relationships and investing in others requires a long-term perspective. The effort and consistency put into nurturing connections will eventually pay off and yield positive results.
  •  Lead by Example: Role modeling plays a crucial role in shaping the behaviors and values of others, whether they are your children or colleagues. By demonstrating positive traits, you inspire and influence those around you to follow suit.

In a world that often focuses on short-term gains and instant gratification, it’s important to take a step back and consider the value of investing in others. Whether it’s in the workplace, personal relationships, or even within our families, the act of investing in others has the power to create a brighter future for everyone involved.

This episode reminds us all of the significance of investing in others, not just for personal growth but also for the collective betterment of society. Take a listen and consider how you can make a positive and lasting impact in the lives of those around you.
