TAG: Holiday Cheer

by Deb Andrychuk

27 December, 2012

The words “holiday season” mean different things to different people. For some, it means gift giving and for others it’s deeply spiritual. For others it simply means sharing time with family and loved ones.

For me, it has always been a time to reflect on the year and to give thanks for all of the gifts bestowed upon me throughout the year. This year in particular, I have so much to be grateful for. Outside of having a family that I cherish, I work with an amazing team of folks here at The Arland Group. Yeah, yeah … I know you hear this Hallmark type sentiment all the time, but I am being FOR REAL! Our team is truly like family. And, without question, if you asked my fellow TAGers they would affectionately acknowledge that I am the slightly dysfunctional person in the group (sort of like the crazy aunt who comes to visit without the weird hair or strange clothes.) You know we sales people can be a bit quirky, right? We have the unwritten responsibility to bring life to the party (OK, drama). But, I think what’s great is that my peeps recognize that my flair for the dramatics is just part of what makes me who I am (yes, you got it—CRAZY). I enjoy making others laugh and smile. It’s an essential piece to my job and to enjoying life in general.

So, to my awesome work family, I raise my glass and I toast you! I thank you for the long hours and amazing work you produce. For every amazing piece of creative and all the inspiring content that you have come up with, I salute you! I thank you also for no complaints even when you had every right to cry, especially when I asked for the impossible and then said, “I need this ASAP!”  And, I hope that my craziness has not worn you down yet, because we have lots to do in 2013! Last, I appreciate you for accepting me, even when I’m in desperate need of a home visit from Jerry Springer or maybe Dr. Phil. I will try to curb my kookiness for the New Year.

And, as we close out a hugely successful 2012, I wish you all much peace and happiness for 2013!  Here’s to our best year ever!
Happy New Year!
