Win or Lose - I'm Thankful to Be In the Game
I will always be a loyal Minnesotan. I complain about our long, cold winters but absolutely love crisp, cold January mornings that take my breath away. I would prefer a longer golf season, but am always a bit relieved when it is time to put the clubs away and get back into the gym. I roll my eyes at the passive/aggressive nature of Minnesota Nice, but puff my chest out a bit when colleagues from other states tout our strong work ethic and comment that we are just so darn NICE up here. And my disappointment runs deep like all hard-core Minnesotans when once again our beloved Vikings miss a chance to play in the Super Bowl, but my heart still bleeds purple.
As another year begins, I like to pause and be thankful that Creatis calls Minnesota home and for our amazing clients like UnitedHealth Group, Medtronic, Deluxe, Portico, AmeriPrise, Marketplace Events and Starkey Hearing Technologies (our newest engagement), along with others. At Creatis, we are celebrating our 20th year in business throughout 2018, and strong client relationships like these have made it possible for us to remain a thriving small business here in Minnesota and employ more than 100 marketing, creative and communciation professionals each year.
So in addition to purple, I proudly bleed Minnesota blue (the color of our flag and our lips) and Creatis orange. We are so grateful to be 'in the game' of being Of Service to our clients to help them be successful and get more work done. And we know there is always a next year. And Creatis will still be here - ready to serve (and cheer). SKOL!
