Excellent article on lobbyist and lawyer, Yolanda Cash-Jackson:
Networking is a skill Jackson, 51, has honed in her evolution from a litigator to a lobbyist, a big reason she wields unique power both at her law firm in Fort Lauderdale and the Capitol in Tallahassee. She has created this Sister to Sister group to give African-American women of influence a place to renew friendships and make connections. She's also taken some members of the group shopping -- or rather, ``relationship building.'' ``I use every opportunity because my work and my social life are intertwined,'' Jackson tells me.
I am intrigued. For anyone who sees only the negative in making life about work, there's Jackson to prove them wrong. Hearing this woman enthusiastically describe her jam-packed schedule makes me rethink my whole concept of work-life balance. Jackson has blurred the line, and she's having a ball doing it.
