Gail and I have, from time to time, recommended that people consider forming a Personal Advisory Board. The Board is meant to be a few people that can support, advise and challenge you.

At first this might sound corny. However, you probably have the loose form of one already. There are probably a couple of people you speak with for counsel as issues arise. It may be a mentor where you are currently working. It may be a mentor from a prior job, or a college classmate, or a friend from some other walk in life.

Read this article on how to build and use a personal advisory board. Linda Gravett wrote this article answering some questions you might have on setting up your board.

Everyone I know who has done this, really enjoys speaking with their personal board members. And, this may surprise you, the members of the personal advisory boards consider it an honor to be asked and really enjoy helping out.

Try it and let us know how it works.

Cheers, Mike
