As the year winds down, it’s time to thank everyone for being a part of a terrific year. Saying thanks and really appreciating so many for being a part of my journey. Both professionally and personally. On the personal side, thank you to everyone for all your love and support and it was greatly appreciated and helped.
It Just Keeps Getting Better
Every year just keeps on getting better. In reflecting on all the good things and the challenges we had, it is exciting to see how we continue to grow, move forward in a positive and successful direction. There are many great people to thank, including my business partners; Ali, Mazen and Shawn, our spouses, who are always there for us, the incredible AlphaKORians’ and our clients (the extended team).
Thanks to our families, friends and associates who play a role in our successes. I thank each and every one of you for making 2019 a terrific year!
Balancing Work And The Holidays
How do you balance work and the holidays?
The calendar in December is filled with holiday company events, customer appreciation events, holiday networking events, friends and family holiday events and many other gatherings. How many events can you attend and how many do you want to attend?
Finding the right balance between work and holiday commitments can be challenging. When clients and suppliers invite you for their appreciation events, it is important to make the effort to attend. Don’t forget to wish them a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays in person!
Unplugging With The Family
Looking forward to this Holiday Season with some time off to enjoy unplugging for a bit while making time for the family. We seem to forget this as we get swept away by all the activities and invitations. Our annual tradition is to celebrate on Christmas Eve with my family. My sister is hosting this year. Everyone brings a dish, so no one has to prepare it all. We are welcoming the 4th generation with his first Christmas season, Atlas Abbruzzese, as my parents, the great grandparents, are just thrilled and still learning how to pronounce his name.
Christmas Day is spent with Carmela’ side of the family. Another big meal and too many sweets and desserts and of course espresso. Always a wonderful time and enjoy playing cards after the big meal in between naps. There will be a lot of love this year as we cherish the memories of loved ones.
Happy balancing during the Holiday Season!
See You Next Year!
Looking forward to seeing many of you soon and in the New Year! Thank you everyone, have a great holiday and all the best in the new year. Merry Christmas and enjoy the moment. Be responsible and take care of your loved ones to ensure everyone gets home safe. Enjoy your holidays and all the best in 2020!
Happy New Year!
