I used to live in England for three years and travel throughout Europe during the early years of marriage. It was fun, exciting, and helped me broaden my perspective in life. I'm back in England for a few days to visit family, and it feels like home. Arriving at Heathrow made me think of all the relationships I have out here, both personal and professional. Then realize this: I could be doing international work one day.
Everyone grows up to be somebody. That's why it's important to never burn bridges. You'll never know who you'll be working with.
My take away: Relationships = Opportunities.
