If robots came into our office, froze all of us (even Scout) with ray guns, hacked into our website, and rewrote the content, it would probably sound something like this:
Honestly, the last five or six days at work have been exhausting. I'm not complaining-- I have it good, and I love my clients, but man, have you ever just had one of those weeks where you're perpetually humbled by everything? I'll tell you about it if you want to keep reading.
This has been a cool week at work, but no thanks to me. I'd like to give a shoutout to the following people:
1. Cole Cano.
Cole kicked more ass this week than I could ever expect from anyone. Thanks for staying up late to design something that couldn't have been super fun. Thanks for fixing my truck and Kat's bench in our office. Thanks for being the most hardworking, genuine, solid employee imaginable. Seriously, Cole. Thank you.
2. Pete Francisco.
Pete is our web designer, and a great one at that. He can also Photoshop wrinkles out of pillows and make me laugh with his sarcasm until my face hurts. Thanks for getting shit done and decoding the fragmented thoughts in my emails.
3. My best buddies in Montana, Mike Brodie and Elise Davis.
Don't tell anyone, but I actually had fun bowling. Thanks for getting me to step out of the ways I've been set in.
4. The students in my Photoshop Class at FVCC.
You guys are hilarious! This is going to be a fun semester.
5. Heidi Van Everen and Carla Belski from Whitefish Legacy Partners
You two provide me with the ultimate creative freedom and allow my job to be ridiculously fun.
Thanks for trusting my vision and ideas and for generally being the most awesome client I could ever dream of working with. I can't wait to see the Learning Pavilion take shape.
Last week, one of my new clients called me and announced she was finally ready to start the business she had been thinking about for a year. I was so stoked for her. Months ago, we met in my old office and talked about her business idea and threw some ideas around for the design and branding. She held off for a while, but now she's ready to launch her business, and I couldn't be happier for her. I drove out to her new building to talk about the space, how she wanted to use it, and how we could use design to make the space as effective as possible for her and her clients. She was excited, and we talked through options and ideas and colors. She had the fire. Her enthusiasm spread to me and lasted for the rest of the week.
For me, this interaction reinforced that entrepreneurs get to do the things that set them on fire.
