Refirement Network :: January 2017


Dear Refirement Members

Welcome to 2017. I hope that this will be an exciting year for each of you. This excitement to a large extent will be designed and created by you personally. I hope that this year you will take responsibility and challenge yourself to grow, adapt and transform. We are never too old to learn new tricks.

I ended my last newsletter of 2016 with some personal news of my own journey, traveling to see both my children to celebrate my 60 th birthday. I am still away and will be back in South Africa by the end of the week. I have enjoyed two months of building memories, working while traveling and spending special family time.

I have met with some international business associates and even managed an extra trip to visit my sister in the USA for a few days. Part of this journey was to test my ability to travel and work. I am delighted to say that this was an exercise I certainly will be repeating in the future.

Thank you for being part of this community and adding value to my life and those you engage with daily.

I look forward to meeting more of you this year as we journey together. Watch this space for many exciting new ideas and stories.

Warm regards

Lynda Smith
Founder of Refirement Network. Wisdom Preserver and Connection Specialist.

Read the new article I have written about the assets in the bank and make sure you start this year by adding your skills and details. Remember that you are building a personal brand. Read more.
