With February whipping past as though it was a tornado, I literally am left a little dizzied, and a lost for words. But what we haven’t forgotten to do is to find time for play. I’m a believer that nothing is worth doing unless there is some fun or joy in it and why work if you can’t play?

From week to week, I see the growth and synchrony of our team members. It fills me with a sense of pride and accomplishment that I have the ability to work with young professionals, in a field that we’re passionate about. It excites me to offer them the exposure, experience, and sometimes guidance, that I hope will follow them throughout their careers.

As a small Agency, our team’s dynamic is the heart and soul of our business and something we keep a constant eye on to ensure it’s health. Some of the little things we do seem to really help keep the dynamic loose. We do a weekly lunch out on the town as a team, we’ve gone to imax movies and played pool at our local billiards hall. We play darts in the office almost regularly as well as chess, which I am the reigning Queen of.

Besides those things, we talk about dream projects, our get rich ideas, politics and a lot about gaming. Our families come through for office visits and sometimes the surprise FaceTime from my family in Hawaii. That being said, we’re a different type of family. Somewhere between a family and a platoon. We share in each others successes that happen away from the office and have each other’s back from 9-5. It’s a beautiful thing really. It’s something that’s always in the back of my mind. It’s something that I think about first thing in the morning and something I reflect upon before I head out the door to my other family.

I don’t really know where I was going with all of this, but maybe it’s just something I needed to say out loud. We’ve had some amazing talent start here with us who have gone on to various agencies. But there’s something about this group that’s just special.

Maybe I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for making my dreams possible. This lady is forever grateful!
