It is commonly said between people who share a connection that they “have each other’s backs”. While this kind of a relationship is great, it is far more important for people to have their own back. This is not as difficult as it sounds. There are some really simple steps that can be taken to put this in place.

One of the most important things is to maintain a public presence. When other people are aware of your existence they are more likely to seek you out.This can be done through social media and more importantly by establishing long lasting professional relationships at work.You may be thinking that this all well and fine but what does this have to do with having my back? Well, people who feel as though they are connected and visible to others have more confidence. They are more likely to find solutions to their problems not by relying on others but by asking other people for advice.

By actively seeking solutions you might just discover some hidden talent you were not even aware that you had.
