Thank you Sharon Wheeler!

Thank you Sharon Wheeler!

In the week that Americans celebrate Thanksgiving I wanted to take the opportunity to share this post originally published on my LinkedIn Page. You can view it here.

For the last few days I have been searching…

but I regret to inform you that I have failed in my search.

I was searching for the first person who took a chance on me and gave me my first permanent job in Marketing.

Months after my appointment I remember her telling me that she had fought for me. There were other candidates being considered.

I was filled with so much gratitude then as I still am now. To have someone believe* IN YOU is a wonderful feeling.

My plan was to thank her again via LinkedIn.

UPDATE: This afternoon I have found her, here on linkedIn, courtesy of advanced search. The person I want to say thank you too is Sharon Wheeler – Picture above.

Thank you Sharon Wheeler!

Who was the first person to believe in you professionally? If possible, name them in your comments below.

So often we are pushing forwards chasing the next goal or objective. We don’t always get time to reflect and express our gratitude. Have a great day everyone!
