There’s no “I” in team, but the “me” makes great things happen

As we roll on with our month of thankfulness, I am reminded of something that happened in the car last week. While I was driving my nine-year-old daughter, Yael, home from hockey the other day, she was complaining about a teammate who refused to pass her the puck during a practice drill. “You know mom,” she said, “there is no β€œI” in team.” She paused and then said, “But you can get a β€œme” if you rearrange letters.” I laughed at her observation, at the time, but have been thinking about it since. No, there is no “I” in team, but each individual is so very important that each “me” on the team really does matter. With that in mind, I would like to express my gratitude to the individuals that make up the Spring Insight core team. I am so grateful for them and not only can I not imagine running the company without them, I wouldn’t want to.

Thank you - Spring InsightMaria – My project manager, Maria, not only makes sure that every web development project is running on time and that everyone knows what they are supposed to do, but she does it with a sense of humor. Her dedication and tech savvy is evident in everything she does and I am so thankful for the day she agreed to come work at Spring Insight.

Bret – My developer, Bret, has been a part of Spring Insight since our second site. He is endlessly patient and proves how essential he is every day not just by building the sites we envision, but also by asking smart questions that guide us in better directions.

Brittany – When my marketing department imploded in the spring, my hope was only to replicate what I had lost. Instead, I found Brittany, my marketing manager. She was such a vibrant resource for Spring Insight that I immediately knew I had to share her with my clients. From that, a whole new service line was born helping clients with ongoing marketing support!

Emily – Do you know what it is like finding a copywriter that can capture your voice so well you sometimes aren’t sure where your writing leaves off and hers begins? That is the way I feel when I read Emily’s writing. The magical thing though is that while I can really only write well in my voice, Emily manages to capture all of our clients’ voices as well.

Angela – Our newest team member Angela, our designer, hasn’t quite had enough time yet to show her super powers, but I already am ridiculously impressed with intelligence with which she approaches new projects and the depth of the questions she asked.

Next week, way more thankfulness. It almost makes me teary. πŸ™‚

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your
    blog. It appears like some of the text within your posts are running off
    the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let
    me know if this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.

    Hi cellfoods! Thank you for looking out! I’ve tested it on several browsers/computers and I can’t seem to replicate the problem. What browser/version do you happen to be using?
