We started 2010 with uncertainty. The economy was weak and we ended 2009 having experienced a softer-than-normal 2nd half. We didn’t know what to expect as we planned for the New Year, but if you read our blogs from late 2009, it is clear that our faith was being tested.
But God always finds a way and he certainly did with us and with the clients we serve. We’ve had a wonderful year, filled with awesome experiences, working with bright and talented colleagues, and driving firm growth and cultural change. We’ve had great fun traveling this magnificent United States of ours, reconnecting with friends and meeting new people. Our team has grown closer as we’ve seen both personal success and loss, and we’ve grown even more committed to our mission and our Maker’s grand plan for us each individually and as a team. Best of all, the testing of our faith has made it stronger.
We are grateful for your part in our continued growth and development. We look forward with real enthusiasm to the bright New Year ahead, where our nation will continue its healing and recovery and where we will continue to develop leadership in every person we meet and every corner we reach.
We wish you, your family and colleagues the most peaceful and joyful holiday season possible.
P.S. To celebrate the joy of this season and honor our hard-working team, we will close our offices from December 24 through January 2, reopening for business on Monday, January 3, 2011. We look forward to being of service to you in 2011!
