When you look back at your year and all of the people you have worked with in some form, are there any people that stand out in your mind? Someone that shined a little brighter, or made life a little easier? Someone that contibuted to your experience of life, in ways both large and small? We each have our favorite clients and our favorite vendors. Our favorite Fedex delivery person or teller at the bank. That one barista that never fails to smile.
I encourage each of you to look back on your life in 2014, both personally and professionally, and really think of all those people that have given a piece of themselves to your life. Maybe you have never even met this person but converse with them regularly via email. Or maybe you only came into contact with them once. But somehow he or she positively impacted your day or week or month. Or year.
May it be for these fellow humans that we feel a sense of gratitude this time of year.
To all of our clients, our vendors, our city inspectors; to our insurance agents and the people at the post office; to our logo designer in Hungary and the print shop that handles our tech gear, and to the dozens of other people that have played an enormous role in our work this year, we could not thank you enough!!!
Many well wishes to you and your loved ones this holiday season. May gratitude and good health and happiness fill your homes and your workplaces now and through the seasons!
[To the incredible members of the Seventy1 family: I am honored to have the privilege of working alongside such wonderful people. Thank you for an absolutely amazing year! This could not be what it is without each of you. ]
