A Championship Team
What a year for the City of Cleveland! I am filled with pride. Hasn't it been wonderful to watch the rest of the country and the world learn what we already know: Cleveland Rocks!
Yes, I am aware the Indians did not win the World Series. In fact, my family and I enjoyed a true Cleveland evening: Finding Neverland at Playhouse Square was spectacular, and we then walked down to Gateway Plaza to watch our team battle in Game 7 of the World Series. Thee energy was amazing, and we just couldn't help think: How lucky are we?
Success. What does it mean to you? Is it always coming out on top? Is second place only the first loser?
Does success look a little less obvious sometimes? Is it celebrating the team's effort to reach common objectives? Is it reveling in the small wins that remind you why you are in business at all?
I think the reason I'm feeling so proud of our town is that we really seem to be pulling together. Not just in sports, and certainly that does not mean we agree on politics.
We are pulling together to show up. To talk about the challenges we face and discern what opportunities we can create to move forward. To celebrate the collective victories that come when we worry more about who benefits and less about who gets the credit.
Congratulations, to all of us. Let's keep it going through this season of giving.
Please enjoy all the important news and opportunities listed in this month's newsletter. I promise, it is worth your time and attention. As always, please be in touch to share what is happening with you.
Now let's get busy...there is much work to do!
