I am at the stage in my life and career where I'm starting to spend a little more time thinking about legacy. With triplet 12-year-olds still at home, and two boys currently in college, I am not yet ready for retirement. But the realization that I'm closing in on retirement sparks new ideas about how to finish strong and gets me dreaming about the best plan for the legacy of this small family business. It’s fun to look back over the last quarter of a century (wow!) we have spent growing a business, but I am starting to get more excited about looking forward.
Our second son, Joshua, recently began officially working for Sundog as a customer support team member, while attending an online college boot camp for web development. And, our very own Monica’s son, Jacob Whitt, is starting as an intern customer support team member this month as well. It’s truly becoming a family affair. Next year, Jeni’s daughter Lily will be coming on as an intern as part of a high school program. Apparently, that program has to be without pay, so after some negotiation, we decided we could afford that :)
I'm excited about the next generation and look forward to working together as a company to share the depth of knowledge our team has with the new up-and-coming team members. We are building a legacy (and some great skills) together.
Thanks to all our amazing customers who trust us with their websites! Be sure and say "hi" to Joshua and Jacob and let us know how our team can serve you.
All the Best,
