Last week I started training with our newest Account Manager.  I always get a little nervous before training someone new, I want to be sure I don't miss any details and explain things in an interesting way so that it is an exciting process.

My nerves quickly turn into excitement as soon as I start training and simply sharing the history of our company, our Vision, Mission and Values.  As cheesy as it sounds, I really love what I do and the company I work for.  As I review our company history and the path we have been on over the last 11 years, I feel so proud to be a part of the CCI Studios team!

I think what excites me most about reviewing our company foundation with new employees, is that while we continue to grow and advance, we still dedicate so much time and attention to reviewing, refining and perfecting what we do and the way we do it.  And, the reason we apply so much energy into our process is because we want to continue to offer our clients great experiences with quality finished products.

Adding a new member to our team and reviewing our continually advancing processes and procedures reminds me of our origins and the growth we have seen throughout our history.  On a day to day basis it can sometimes be difficult to realize the positive impacts of the small changes that take place, but when you have an opportunity to look back and reflect on the bigger picture of the last few years, you can see how our efforts have brought us to where we are today.

It is a bittersweet time for me, as I train a new Account Manager to work with some of my existing clients and work on tying up any loose ends before I begin my maternity leave.  I am so excited to become a mom and have some time at home with my baby but I am also a little nervous about stepping back from my career for awhile.  I am only nervous because it will be a change for me as the team we currently have continues to impress me with their intelligence, innovation and ability to work together to meet our clients needs.  I hope to keep my hand on the pulse of our company while I am off and look forward to a fresh new chapter when I head back to work in the new year.
