Two months ago, I stood outside the doors of the 9-year relationship that defined a large part of my adult life. With tears in my eyes, a suitcase in my right hand and my dog’s leash in my left, I looked behind me to see the closed door and even knowing I was making the right decision didn’t make the path in front of me less scary. I knew that closing that door would forever transform me – but again, that realization didn’t make it easier.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: why is this marketing person talking to me about breakups? Why should I care and how does this affect my bottom line?
