Appreciating the People Who Help
March 1 is Employee Appreciation Day, and I have a great reason to observe it this year. Not too long ago, I hired my first full- time employee. I had a part-time assistant for a while, which was a godsend, but having someone working for me full time is truly amazing. My new employee, JaNai Goldsborough, has increased our productivity and decreased my stress levels in too many ways to mention here. I do a lot of work with Medicare and Social Security recipients, many of whom are 65 and up, and who sometimes suffer from disabilities. These clients require extra care, and it helps us to be more accessible when I have another person assisting with client inquiries. This also gives me time to solve unanticipated problems. For a while, there was a glitch with my message box; none of the messages my clients left for me showed up on my phone. I never would have had time to get to the bottom of that without JaNai’s help, and this realization made me think of ways other important people in my life — such as my parents, past assistants, or even our nanny — have given me the same peace of mind.
