Happy Friday and welcome to the start of a whole new decade together! I hope that you enjoyed some much-deserved downtime with your friends and family. December is always a crazy time for me, because it's my son Nathan's birthday! This year he turned... 13...!!! I was also able to spend some time with my family up in the Poconos for a full-family trip with my parents, sisters and their families relaxing together.
Do you ever find yourself thinking you should show your clients some appreciation in the new year, but can never come up with any good ideas or plan of execution so you just give up? Or you start off strong at the beginning of the year only fizzle out by second quarter? Well, you aren’t alone. You are very much like most of our clients.
Don’t worry, we also have a plan for this too!

Happy Friday and happy end of 2019! It has been a blessed year for me personally and professionally and as I reflect back I am always filled with nothing but gratitude!
As you've seen me share, Delegate had 2 big award wins this fall; we ranked #52 on the list of Fastest Growing Companies here in Philly AND, I personally won the Philly Chamber's Small Business Person of the Year Award! It was one of the highest honors of my life, and my son Nathan was there to share it with me. He was the star of the night for sure, and was super proud to be part of it. Even my team, though distributed was sharing in the love and made the sweetest video congratulating me from their home offices across the country.

Happy Friday! Wow, it has been such a busy fall, right?! Like head-spinning busy- for me both personally and professionally. As we've shared, Delegate has won some pretty great awards this fall- we grabbed the #52 spot on the fastest growing companies in Philly (woot! The Philly 100!!), and I won Small Business Person of the Year with the Philly Chamber (a high honor! for me personally!).
This combined with the challenges of a growing company along with a whole bunch of big shifts in my personal life equals a lot to manage! With all of this swirling around me, it's hard to stay focused week over week towards the game-changing work.
