I have been doing what you recommend due to trauma and loss. Three years ago I had to build a village of support. (See book Village Effect) I have people I have breakfast with once a week. I have some I meet once a week, a friend I meet once a month for lunch. I swim every day at a pool and I make a point to reserve time to chat with a swimmer or two (it is how I met my boyfriend). We have to make connections. My clients enjoy meeting for coffee. It is that chance to talk to them and by doing that you gain insight that can certainly help you, help them. Thank you for this deep article.
