Personality Development

Being a student of the personal development industry most of my life, I’m always on the lookout for the latest and greatest resources to not only implement into my own life but to also share with those around me. Since I’ve been running my own business I’ve fallen more and more into the well of personal development and self-improvement and I absolutely love it! With the internet now a common place for everyone and the ‘free economy’ being born, it’s amazing to know that what was once hidden from the majority of people and limited to a select few people paying $5,000 to access information at a weekend seminar, this information is now mostly widely available for free on the internet or at least at a much more affordable price.

I realised how much virtual communication has overcome distance and become a very positive part of our lives. People can meet without the time and cost of travel. Most of our daughter’s generation of parents have one parent working virtually so they can manage child care more easily; all around the world, many teams can meet despite being very far away from one another; people can join stimulating international communities in their areas of interest, all through virtual meetings.

Yes, it does remove the direct human contact we all crave, but with care, we can overcome much of this disadvantage. If you manage your virtual communication so that it pulls people together, you can make the most of the technology without losing the personal connect.
