It’s weird because I am already married… with children. But I just realized the other day that I have a wife, and she is The Byne Group. I have had the pleasure of working at The Byne Group for close to four years now. I am so happy to be as involved as I am here. I love what I do, but it is so easy to get caught up in the day to day demands of the job and not look at the big picture on a daily – or even regular basis.
I remember when I met The Byne Group. She was so perfect, so creative and smart and so close to home. She was everything that I was looking for. But you know how it goes… you get comfortable, things start becoming routine. The little things that you thought were so amazing, the things you loved about her at the start – you begin to take them for granted. I am guilty of this. But I am lucky.
I am lucky because I work with a bunch of talented people (the fact that they just happen to be all women makes it even sweeter). For the last couple of weeks we have been concepting for a new client. I love these times – We think, we create, I believe for this client, we have hit it out of the ballpark. And it brings me to my happy place. Back to that ‘honeymoon’ phase and it makes me remember why I loved her when I met her.
So maybe everyone should take a look at their wives (employers) and try to remember why you started dating them in the first place. Maybe it will rekindle something. …I hope it does.
Maybe Ann will get me an engagement ring.
