team

day four (of thirty)

team
super grateful for team (my team)
i would be so very lost without them
and while this photo doesn’t include
even one eighth of who works with me
(in my various companies)
this photo of some of the ones who came
to support this weekend at the institute’s live event
has me teary and wanting to share
a few words about each of these loves
and a few about the ones not featured here
who i am especially grateful for
because there is no way
we could be here at the event
if we didn’t have people
handling the day-to-day
of the business at home

so a huge thank you to
jen and christy
who have been with us
at ipe for a few years now
who held down the fort while we
did our best to rock the room

jen you have been such a gift
i still remember your initial interview
and how i immediately felt trust for you
how much you care
comes through everything you do
your commitment to excellence
and a job well done no matter what
is impressive and has set a new standard
for what i look for in those i work with
jen runs the machine
and does so with such loving attention
i can rest in knowing she always does her best (always)

and christy you just have the best attitude
every time i connect with you
i am left with a big smile on my face
i am so grateful for your willingness
to jump in wherever you are needed
it was such a pleasure to meet you in person
last year after working together virtually for so long
you shine so bright
and that brightness comes through
in everything you do (truly)

oh and hicuni you have only been with us
a couple weeks but already i am hearing
such good things about you

i got to thank the rest of the ipe team in person today
so just a few words for those of you
who didn’t get to be in the room

stephanie your wisdom is awe inspiring
the way you support our students
has my heart resting easy knowing they are cared for
in such a pure and committed way
you have been with us the longest
and i am so grateful for how you have shown up
year after year to offer your knowledge
and love so consistently
i am deeply grateful for you and your contribution
to not only our world, but the world

tessie, you my friend are so talented
so bright, so kind, so enlivening
such a force for good, a generous soul
a truly inspiring being
i couldn’t be happier to have you
be the first point of contact
for so many of our students here at ipe
you have touched my heart
in ways i am not sure i have ever shared
such as your birthday video to me last year
so now you know, i love you
and am very grateful for you

oh sarah you know how i feel now
thank you, thank you, thank you for being
my right and left hand lately
it’s a joy to work with you

alix so glad you are with us
i love your creative eye,
honest nature and playfulness
looking forward to getting to know you more
oh and you have been so so helpful this week
making all the details happen, really thank you

megan i just adore you
from the moment we connected on social media
i have had a special place in my heart for you
i love how you go after what you want
how you express yourself
and how we get each other in unspoken ways
i am so thankful to have your support
it takes a lot for me to trust someone
with what i am trusting you with
so thank you

luke you know 😉
i am over the moon grateful for you
thank you for bringing in brian
who has been such a delight to work with
i am touched by how much heart you give brian
so thank you
and steven really you support us so well
it means a lot that we can rely on you
thank you for showing up so fully

anita i love you like a sister
you are one of the most beautiful people
i have ever known, through and through
you are one of the rare ones
whose heart I trust completely
i carry you with me always
really i do
i feel like i loved you almost instantly
i think my heart recognized you
as a forever friend
in a way i have never had to question
i just adore every bit of you

oh and angela when i think team
i cannot not mention you
there is more coming from me
for you sometime soon
but in the meantime
i want you to know that you have been
one of my greatest teachers
and most important allies
i am better for knowing you

so thank you,
thank you all
i feel lucky and happy
i feel held and supported
in ways i didn’t know were possible for me
after all, those who knew me years ago
know that running a company while nurturing a team
was certainly not a strength of mine
frankly i was horribly awkard at the people part of it
relating has never come naturally to me
loving sure, but knowing how to communicate it
through words and action
i just didn’t know
and i am still learning

i am learning
i am growing
and this team
gives me hope
butterflies and
overwhelming
gratitude

i feel so very blessed
to have such amazing
incredibly caring
marvelously creative
endlessly funny
radiant people
around me
with me
so thank you
and you
and you
