Gratitude is such an important part of business. I’ve found that telling people how grateful I am for the role they played in my success is very important to me. It allows me to appreciate how grateful I am to the smart people in my life.
Over this past year these wonderful people have been kind, generous and supportive and I thank my lucky stars that they are in my life.
There is no particular order. I know I’m leaving some people out and this isn’t on purpose.
