In Short: November 2009

You know the drill. In Short this week at Outlandos focusing on, surprise surprise, thanks.

For most of us, it’s easy to remember the big things: life, health, happiness, friends and family, the end of Oprah, leftover turkey sandwiches. But then there’s the day-to-day and the people who help us retain basic sanity.

So I’m going to get all touchy-feely on you. Take a moment to thank the people who work with/for you. From your postman to your VP. Without them, you’d likely be screwed.

1. Interns I don’t know what I’d do without them. These guys do all kinds of banal stuff for me and in exchange, I pledge to give them as many free concert tickets as I can and someday plan to write them a recommendation that hopefully lands them their dream job. Mostly, I tell them how friggin spectacular they are ad nauseam. John, Jay, Elijah: I can’t thank you enough. I’m incredibly fortunate to have you on the team and am grateful every single day for the outstanding work you do. Without you, I would most certainly lose my mind (even more). I owe you like, forever.

2. Partners People helping people. Oh boy, I told you, it’s like I’m my own Oprah. But seriously, we’re all stronger together. So it only makes sense to partner up with people who get it. You scratch my back, I scratch yours. It’s all in good faith and Outlandos has some amazing partners. In part because we’re such glass-half-full, anything’s-possible, nothing-to-lose folks []
