This right here - This is our top ‘why’. There are others - but this absolutely sits at the top.
Thank you, Nancy, for being so vulnerable and providing this encouragement to me and others. It was hard not to get emotional when I saw this!
I know many of us are balancing all the wonderful end-of-school year activities AND our work schedules (not to mention other important areas of life). There is a reason there are actual university level courses focused completely on ‘work-life’ balance (and I was first in line for them!). I know we are not the only ones navigating our paths forward here and doing our best to build a healthy, centered life.
To our amazing HIHR LLC Clients, Partners, and Team….we are doing this together!!!! Because of YOU, we are able to do what we love, be here for you and your teams…and for our families! We have extremely high trust and work closely as a team to make this happen.
We might not get it perfect every day, and there are seasons when things are more manageable than others…but I believe It IS possible. Myself, Nancy and a few others on our team are living this reality. I truly believe it spills over into our work, our families and our community!
What Nancy shared really touched my heart and gives me even more motivation to keep going and growing!!!
I too had the opportunity to volunteer and spend our kids ‘Sports Day’ with them. It was hot, crazy, chaotic, fun and amazing! (I may or may not have been the unqualified soccer/football coach for a team called the Raiders - watch out haha!) My 10-year-old literally sat on my lap when he saw me (almost never happens)…and my 6-year-old daughter would not stop smiling and waving - it was amazing! :)
In addition to this, there are a few key people (though the list is longer) that have absolutely inspired me personally and professionally to pursue this reality. Thank you for trusting us, hiring us, mentoring us, referring us, showing kindness and encouragement AND believing in the future we are building together for work, our families and communities!
