Seeking advice is humbling and it takes courage but the end result is a collaboration of people working together to achieve the same goal. Today, I want to encourage you to seek advice from other people at work that can help you be successful at whatever you are trying to accomplish. Below is a devotional from my book Devotions for Working Women.
