This is one of those milestones that provides you with a "proud moment." A moment that you want to share with your whole team, but also your friends, family and colleagues. It's a badge of honor that validates that you've surrounded yourself with some bright people who are also passionate about the same things as you from a professional standpoint. It's a reminder that you are DOing what you love. When you receive this big packet and open it, you get a bit caught up in all the things that brought you to this point. They include a piece that goes like this:
As an Inc. 5000 honoree, you now share a pedigree with Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Clif Bar, Pandora, Patagonia, Oracle, and other notable alumni. The 2015 list added such powerhouses as Fitbit, Smashburger, Bowlmor AMF, Planet Fitness, Giftcards.com, Radio Flyer, Box and Mindbody. You are in good company - which is exactly where you belong.As you read the above brands and companies, you know you're sitting in great company. I want to say I'm proud of our team and again, like I've already done on Facebook, thank each and every friend, family member and colleague who has supported Digital Operative on this journey. And oh yea ... it's not over yet. We are going to continue to do great work, solve the challenges that come our way and introduce new team members into the DO family, as we've always been DOing. Thank you.
