With Thanksgiving almost within reach, it’s hard to think of anything but turkey, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and warm homemade rolls. Actually, for me, my mind is on my aunt’s chocolate pie and my grandmother’s macaroni and cheese.
But regardless of the type of food item occupying your thoughts right now, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what we have to be grateful for. I, for one, realize I have a lot to be grateful for, considering the people I interact with on a daily basis and the work I’m tasked with each day.
Having been a part of the TopRank Online Marketing team for 4 months now, I’m thankful for my fellow team members who have patiently shown me the ropes along the way and made me feel welcome.
And as a brand-new Minnesotan, I’m also thankful for my team members’ recommendations on the best restaurants in Minneapolis, directions to the neighborhood post office, insight on the area speed traps to look out for – you name it!
In the spirit of such thankfulness, I asked some of my fellow Online Marketing Blog contributors here at @TopRank to share what they’re thankful for this holiday season:
“This Thanksgiving, I am especially thankful for TopRank clients. 2009 has been a great year of achieving new heights and celebrating success, whether it was attaining that sought after 1st place ranking for a competitive term, increasing inquiries or launching a blog. I am also extremely thankful for the TopRank team for their dedication, and my friends and family who keep me laughing all year long.”
“I’m thankful for being a team member of an industry leading digital marketing firm like TopRank, writing for Online Marketing Blog, working with high-quality clients and the marketing community as a whole for being a great group of people. Additionally, as a (relatively) new Minnesotan, I’m thankful that it is nearly December and I still have not had to use the ice scraper provided to me by Dana.”
“I’m thankful to work in a company that is open to new ideas, new media, and that is ever evolving into new and exciting spaces. I’m also thankful for my coworkers who keep me entertained with their witty, and sometimes strange, stories.”
“I am truly grateful for the amazingly talented and hard working team we have at TopRank and the clients we are fortunate to serve. There is a real spirit of collaboration, problem solving and work quality here that a lot of other agencies don’t have. The heartbeat of our company is Susan Misukanis, and her dedicated long hours keep our team running smoothly – I am forever thankful for her leadership and commitment.
“I’m also thankful for the TopRank community of blog readers, Twitter followers and IRL friends at conferences, in the industry and the media that have been so generous with their participation and attention. I only hope we’ve provided as much value to you as you have to us.
“Last, but not least, I am thankful for my 3 little ‘munchkins’ who make me proud, make me laugh and remind me of what’s most important of all.”
“Since I began working with TopRank, the thing that I am most thankful for on a continuous basis is the ability for each team member to help each other out when necessary. No one hesitates to lend a helping hand, and we all maintain a positive attitude. Working as a team ensures all ideas are heard, and we all pitch in to benefit the company as a whole. I am also thankful when our TopRank team members help out coworkers outside of work, such as when I am moving next month *hint hint*
Now it’s your turn. What are you thankful for this holiday season?
