As the year winds down, it’s time to thank everyone for being a part of my journey with a year of overcoming new challenges, helping others, and continued growth personally and professionally.
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 and move forward in a positive and successful direction. There are many great people to thank, including my business partners; Ali, Liqaa, 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, thank you!
BALANCING WORK AND THE HOLIDAYS
How do you balance work and the holidays?
This year, the month of 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?
We had our company holiday dinner after three years and it was enjoyed by all who attended. It is wonderful to continue this annual tradition of enjoying the AlphaKORians and significant others in a social setting having dinner and good conversations.
Finding the right balance between work and holiday commitments can be challenging. When clients and suppliers invite you to their appreciation events, it is important to make the effort to attend. Don’t forget to wish them a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
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 Christmas Eve with my family. My sister is hosting this year. Everyone brings a dish, so no one has to prepare it all.
Christmas Day is spent with Carmela’s side of the family. Another big meal and too many sweets and desserts and of course espresso. It is always a wonderful time and we enjoy playing cards after the big meal in between naps.
Happy balancing during the Holiday Season!
SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
To everyone who supported Wednesday Wisdom virtually and in person, we will continue this monthly event to connect and network with others next year. Thank you for following the Building Circles blog and appreciated all your comments, feedback, and support over the years.
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 safely. Enjoy your holidays and all the best in 2023!
