Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
While other holidays are riddled with expectations and exaggerated meanings, Thanksgiving keeps it simple: family, friends and food. Gathering with those you love, sharing quality time, and eating yummy food is something like heaven!
But more than anything, it’s about thankfulness, one of the most important attitudes we can infuse in our lives on a daily basis.
No matter where we live, what we do, or the circumstances of our present situation, there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for, and I believe it’s crucial to keep our eyes on those things.
So in the beautiful spirit of Thanksgiving, I asked the ARCH Specialists to name three things that they’re thankful for this year.
Blake Jamieson, Facebook Ad Specialist
1. The amazing business connections I’ve made over the past year. Many of which were once my idols, and I now can call friends.
2. The tremendous support I’ve received from my friends and family to pursue my passions.
3. My physical and mental health.
KP Kelly, Twitter Organic Growth Specialist
1. I am thankful that, though my year hasn’t brought me more wealth or fame, my year has brought me unquestionably closer to God.
2. I am thankful for the people in my life, and specifically, that in this past year, I’ve found my relationships with each of my closest friends have strengthened.
3. I am thankful for coffee.
Dave Perrotta, Copywriting, Sales Funnels, and Email Marketing Specialist
1. The internet. I always seem to forget this, but if it wasn’t for the internet, I’d be trapped in a cubicle somewhere. We live in an amazing time, and the internet gives us possibilities we never had before. And of course, it makes great social media marketing possible.
2. My network. In Vietnam, I’m surrounded by entrepreneurs who are passionate and determined about their businesses. It pushes me to work harder and keeps me disciplined. When you’re surrounded by successful people, you don’t want to be the anchor who lags behind.
3. Cafes with free wifi. Of course, I love the cafe culture in Saigon. I usually hop around to 2-3 different cafes throughout a day, and they all have free wifi, and most have a great work environment as well. It’s hard to focus when I work from home, but when I go to a cafe, I’m able to sharpen my focus and get a ton of work done.
And me, Ahna Hendrix
1. Tough times. This year was full of tough days that taught me to re-evaluate the most important things in my personal and profession life, leading to some of my life’s greatest blessings and lessons.
2. Family and friends. No matter how jumbled our family can be, we must be supremely thankful for the people who love us no matter what. And thankful for the friends who are devoted enough to be like family.
3. My faith. Nothing compares to the awesomeness of my God and His blessings. Everything I have is a gift.
Annnd, I get an extra for being me 😀
4. My new ARCH family!!! Very, very excited and honored to begin this new chapter of my business with hustlers who share the same values, passions, and drive.
