I get asked a lot if it’s possible to build REAL relationships online, and I wanted to share this story which I think is total proof that yes, yes you can…
Many years ago, very early on when I was developing my online training programmes a young woman reached out to me to share her situation - she was desperate to break out of her job, which she hated and to get her online business working for her.
I sensed such an incredible energy around her, through her words in her email and messages too.
This woman went on to develop her successful VA business and become one of my most dearest friends.
It wasn't until around 7 or so years after meeting each other online (and talking to each other practically every day!) that we met in person for the first time, when she came out to Egypt in October 2018, on a retreat I was running. During this time we sealed our friendship with matching tattoos (YES! That’s how deep the bond is!
Then in August 2019, I went on my very first ever trip to America! And I stayed with her in her home and we did a BUNCH of fun stuff, like go to a Packers American Football game, visit Chicago, and spend the weekend drunk on a Golf Course (Don’t ask!)
And we decided to seal our bond with tattoos yet again. Her name is Megan, which means pearl, and my name is Michelle (a lot of people just call me Shell) so the perfect tattoo was a combination of our names - the Oyster Shell with a Pearl, Et Voila!
So what does all this mean? It simply means that if you care enough about the other person they feel it in their heart and they care for you too. No matter how far apart you are, in many ways, you’re always together...
