If ending the 2nd quarter with a huge bang & starting the 3rd quarter like a snowball headed down the mountain weren't enough, I got an email today from the President of my company. Not a generic, "we're doing this & that" email but a personal email – written to me, for me, and copied to the regional VP.
In a nutshell, it was a personal thank you. Last month, I had one of the 10 largest signed contracts in the company. It meant a lot to him – especially given the nature of my property (ie small resort).
That put a pretty big smile on my face. My reply went like this:
Thanks for the mad props. I'm feeling the love, bro. I'm gonna cost you a wheelbarrow in bonus ca$h, but it's cool – I'm using the dough to buy spinners on the Taurus. Kev Out
And then I hit backspace 179 times and typed a very gracious (reply all) thanks.
