Thanksgiving, A Time to Be Thankful
Authored by Christopher Austin, President of Ardiah Managed Services
As the holiday season approaches, I find myself reflecting on the multitude of things to be grateful for, both personally and professionally. In the fast-paced landscape of today’s business environment, it’s easy to get caught up in the challenges and hurdles we face. However, this Thanksgiving, let’s take a different perspective and focus on gratitude.
Family and Friends: At the core of our lives are the people who stand by us through thick and thin. Running a small business is no easy feat—it’s a 24/7 commitment that can consume your thoughts. Yet, the support of family and friends allows for a delicate balance between work and personal life. They are the pillars that provide strength, regardless of the successes or setbacks we encounter.
Our Team: A business is only as strong as the team behind it. I’m immensely grateful for the dedicated individuals who contribute to both the success of our business and the satisfaction of our clients. Their hard work, passion, and commitment play critical roles in keeping our business thriving.
Our Customers: Without our customers, we wouldn’t have a business to speak of. We appreciate each client, both locally and nationally, who chooses us. Their feedback, whether highlighting strengths or pointing out areas for improvement, makes us better. It’s an honor to have our customers as advocates in the business community, and there’s no greater compliment than having our customer base as our #1 referral source.
Our Community: Our community is more than just a location—it’s a network of support and collaboration. We love being an active part of our community, contributing to local causes, and building relationships with fellow businesses. Strengthening our community is not just good for business; it’s a way to give back and help those less fortunate.
As we approach Thanksgiving, I want to express my gratitude for my family and friends, my incredible team, our valued customers, and the wonderful community we call home. We have much to be thankful for, and I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving surrounded by loved ones!
