Note: I’m writing a note of gratitude on the blog each day in November leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday. My hope is that these posts will inspire you to do the same. Write an email, Facebook post, or a text to tell people they have made an impact on you. Gratitude is contagious.
It was about five years ago, give or take, that I was working at Quantum Workplace and looking to add a marketer to my team there. I’d interviewed a number of people and was getting close to making a decision.
Then a note arrived in my email box from my friend, Stuart, introducing me to someone who he thought I should consider for this role.
I explained to him that I was late in the process and had some pretty good candidates already, but he insisted I make time to meet with this woman. He was certain I would like her.
He was right.
When Jamee and I first met for a coffee, I knew pretty quickly that I wanted to work with her. Jamee is the kind of person you want on your team. In addition to being talented and hardworking, she lifts everyone up through her positivity. She’s got a contagious smile and a legendary laugh.
Jamee is the kind of person who makes you feel happy any time you see her. She’s also strong and determined.
This year, Jamee inspired me through her strength and resolve.
It’s a joy to know her.
And, she’s a veteran. So, today I want to share my gratitude and admiration for Jamee Kugler.
Jamee, I’m so grateful to know you and to have had the opportunity to work with you. You are an amazing, strong person and you make a positive impact on others. Thank you for your service to our country and thank you for being you. I appreciate you.
