Chuck- there is a lot said for doing one thing at a time. For most people the 'personal' part comes first, then the 'professional'. And seeing that no one is handing out prizes at the end of the day, how you go about the matter is as individual as the person or person's involved. There aren't any rules to follow- except- perhaps one. And that is to be yourself.
As others have said: I think you are doing great.
Be the love you seek.
