HELLO | TWELVE, DECEMBER 2019
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.
Below is a copy of what I shared when I accepted the award.
"12 years ago when I started my company, I was looking to eliminate the demands of a 9-5 commute and days spent in a cube to be present to raise my son, Nathan who is here celebrating with me tonight. Delegate was built from day 1 to operate as a 100% remote and flex work company to support that vision. Our team, now over 30 strong is located all across the country, and comprised of people who like me, refuse to make a trade-off on quality of life for meaningful professional work. Though we are distributed, we are united on our mission to create freedom for people to do what they love and have a big impact. Tonight I am grateful to everyone who has helped me achieve this incredible award! Thank you to my rock solid Leadership Team who helps me set our course, our amazing team of Associates who brings that vision to light with clients each and every day, my family & friends who love and support me personally, and most of all, to my son Nathan for inspiring the vision for Delegate. Thank you to the Chamber for your support and willingness to think differently about what small business looks like here in Philly!"
Sending love and gratitude to you from Philly this holiday season!
