Earlier this month we had an amazing time at the San Bernardino 66ers baseball game. There were close to 50 of us present and we had representation from a ton of different firms and practice areas. It was a great time seeing new faces and connecting with colleagues in a wonderful environment. I was reminded of how important it is to connect with others. I, like many of you, was feeling overwhelmed with the looming Sept. 15 deadline and wasn’t sure how to fit the game into my schedule.
In the end, I hurried out of the office to attend and was so happy that I did. I left that evening feeling renewed and re-energized. I found camaraderie in the pressures of the deadline and perspective of the value and benefits we’re able to offer clients and the role we play in the IE business landscape. In that way, this event, for me, was like working out. I wasn’t looking forward to it, but once I was there, I was so glad that I had gone and even felt the benefits of having gone for a few days after the fact.
I encourage you to attend one of our upcoming events, like the ABC event. Even if time is tight or you’re apprehensive to come, give it a try. I’m sure you’ll be glad you did!
