The Thanksgiving holiday is upon us once again. We all lead busy lives with many responsibilities and interactions occurring on a daily, hourly and even minute by minute basis, and Thanksgiving is the one day where it’s customary to give thanks to all those in our lives who we are thankful for. It seems ironic to me that one day is enough to allow all of us to be thankful for the previous 365 days, but I’m grateful to have at least one day as a reminder.
We often think of Thanksgiving as a time to be thankful for our family, extended family and friends, but today I would like to take the time to thank those who I will be unable to ever properly thank for so many things this year.
First, the reason we are able to have the great company we have, our clients. We are incredibly privileged to have the clients we do today. We understand and cherish our role as a strategic advocate and advisor to them, and I’m incredibly thankful for that privilege. I know each member of our IDS team shares in these sentiments, so to each and every one of our clients irrespective of size or length of partnership, thank you.
Second, I would like to thank the many business partners who support our organization. There are so many we are all thankful for, including but not limited to our manufacturer relationships, our banking and financing relationships, our legal and accounting relationships and more. Without our partners we would never be able to support our clients at the level we do today. They help us not only meet customer expectations, but exceed them. I would like to thank each of our partners for the long hours receiving and acting on our constant requests, and always being there for IDS when we need them.
Lastly, I would like to thank all of the IDS family. I have the opportunity to work with an amazing group of caring, passionate and focused people. A family of individuals that I spend more time with on a weekly basis than my own. I could never thank this group of people enough for all that they do to propel our fast growing organization, the encouragement they provide each other, and ultimately the support and inspiration that they provide me on a daily basis. Words simply cannot express what the IDS family means to me.
On this holiday my hope is for everyone to find a network as rewarding as ours. Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks for making all 365 days of our year so satisfying.
