celebrate 100 years.


In 1912, my grandfather traveled by himself from his native Lithuania to New York. Eight years later, on this very day in 1920, my grandmother arrived at Ellis Island with their four children.

Nine months and approximately twenty minutes later, my dad was born, making him the first domestically produced member of the family.

Milestones are important in your business, too, whether that means commemorating anniversaries, framing important accomplishments, or taking a day off to acknowledge reaching a particular goal.

Big companies love to celebrate. It helps make things feel more real. There’s no reason we shouldn’t too!
