First and foremost, I’ll be thanking Hillary (Boucher). See, back a couple of years ago she kept sending me messages letting me know about TheCR lunches in my area. Well, I finally went to one and met Jim. Then, I went to another a few months later and met Rachel. Next thing I know (a year later), I’m part of this fantastic team of community gurus…all because Hillary was persistent, authentic, and cared about the experience of each individual in her community. So thanks, lady! I’m happy to be part of TheCR!
Next, I’ll thank Jerry Green of H&R Block. I’ve been working very closely with Jerry over the past few months to help get their community ready for the next tax season. I hope all of you get a chance to meet Jerry someday as he’s just the nicest and most laid back guy I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Even when the worst of the worst is staring him in the face, he remains positive, upbeat, and knows there is light at the end of the tunnel. And man does he know where to eat in Kansas City, MO. I’m so thankful Jerry considers me a part of his team and I’m looking forward to more!
Finally, I’ll have to find a way to say I’m thankful for an entirely different community. I focus mostly on Lithium forums so the folks who spend their time in the Lithium Lithosphere make my life so much easier with their energy, experience, and ideas. I’m thankful to be a part of it and I’m thankful they are there for users like me!
