So Much to Give Thanks For

Entrepreneurs are typically half-glass-full types of people and I’m no exception. I have much to be thankful for and Thanksgiving is a great time to reflect. One of the best parts of being an entrepreneur is that there are so many opportunities everywhere you look.

I’ve mentioned most of these before but it is important to give thanks as a company. Here are a few of the things we do to give thanks and celebrate our success:

  • Thanksgiving pot-luck lunch the day before Thanksgiving
  • Weekly catered lunches (free food Fridays)
  • Monthly heroes ($100 cash plus a cool lawn ornament for the month)
  • Quarterly celebrations (e.g. Braves game, bowling, Piedmont Park picnic, etc)
  • Quarterly community service projects to give back (e.g. Junior Achievement, clean a park, etc)

I think it’s important to give thanks and we’ve incorporated it into our corporate culture.
