Thanks, Y’all

With the holidays quickly approaching, we just wanted to write a quick note and express our gratitude to all of our partners and friends. We have so many things to be thankful for like our hands (yes, the good old left and right), old school No. 2 pencils, magic wands, G2 .38 mm fine tip pens, French Paper, Pink Pearls — the list can go on and on…

But mostly, it is the people and community we get to help and call it our “job.” So thanks, to all of you – Happy Thanksgiving!!

A Strengths Workout

As the wise Dolly Parton once said…

“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.”

Over the last few months at MCG, with the help of the strength’s experts at Throwing Words, we have been working to find out who we are at our best (and maybe-not-so-best). As we begin understanding how we’re individually wired, we can figure out how to utilize the unique skills each person brings to the table. Each member of our team took the Gallup StrengthsFinder and received a print out of how each of the test’s 34 themes ranked for us individually.
