My gratitude post came a little later than I would’ve liked, but as the saying goes, better late than never. I will try to keep this brief…if I tried to list everything and everyone I am grateful for I know I would miss at least one.
First and foremost, I am grateful for all of the mentors in my life. These are people who have guided and encouraged me either academically, professionally or personally. A few that instantly spring to mind are Terry Greene Sterling, one of my college journalism professors who taught me what true journalism is (and continues to show me), my mom of course, my grandma, J.C. Gobins, for instilling a good business sense in me, Winston Mitchell, who took me under his wing, toughened me up (well I still have some work to do) and let me see what it was like to be an on-camera reporter in one of the toughest cities…NYC. Today, I consider Patrick Harter and Brent Spore my mentors. I admire the way they see the world and their genius marketing minds. I’m grateful beyond measure for each one of these mentors, as they have helped me get to where I am today.
I am also grateful for my clients…for the mutual trust we’ve developed, the new adventures everyday and the opportunity to continually learn and grow with them.
Finally, I am thankful for my wonderful family, friends and amazing dogs who bring so much laughter to my life. Thank you for everything and thank you to @JayBaer for keeping #tweetsgiving going!
