“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” ~ CS Lewis
Let’s face it, making friends as we get older is tough. Where do you find them? How do you strike up a random conversation that blossoms into a long-term friendship? Plus, with so little time available how do you keep up with those good friends you already have?
Going after any big goal requires the support of good friends to be your support system and route for you each step of the way. Today, we’re talking about how to make and keep friends in the midst of a busy schedule. We’ve providing tips, suggestions, and tools you can use to make and keep up with your friendships no matter how busy you may be.
We are delighted to be joined by Carlin Flora, the former features editor of Psychology Today and the author of the book, Friendfluence: The Surprising Ways Friends Make Us Who We Are. She’s appeared on Oprah, The Today Show, CNN, and now on our show, An Action Plan for Dreamers, meaning she’s totally made it.
