One of the 5 P’s of Life is “Personal Relationships” – your relationship with others, including your spouse, significant other, parents, other family members and friends. To build and strengthen these relationships, it’s important to dedicate time to them – no matter how busy life becomes for you. Below are personal relationship tips we tweeted last month on Twitter. Please share these tips with those you love.
