Last year, I arrived for my interview at C&A Industries 45 minutes early, worried that my car would spontaneously break down or I’d be delayed by Omaha’s bustling mid-afternoon traffic. Aiming for, “Wow, she’s prompt and responsible!” rather than, “Is that girl still sitting in the lobby?”
The few weeks before Christmas are my favorite time of year. I love that people are full of cheer, the city is beautifully lit, and classic songs and movies play around the clock. Best of all is the atmosphere of giving and spirit of service.
I landed the job of a lifetime when I was thirteen years old. As the founder and CEO of my own company, I handed out sparkly purple business cards and established a local clientele for weekly babysitting jobs. The hours were flexible and the benefits couldn’t be topped.
I recently attended a friend’s outdoor wedding. Maybe it was the heat or my hunger I’d saved up for the free reception dinner that got to me, but as soon as I sat down at the ceremony, I snobbishly began insulting the whole affair.
Once we announced Zumba classes were coming to C&A, it didn't take long for registration to fill up. 40 employees registered for an eight-week Zumba program that is held Thursday evenings at the corporate office.
Lately, I’ve become really fascinated by what brings people together. You know, that sense of community you have with people you may not know well or even not at all simply because you’re connected by a common thread.
