Congratulations to our Deena, who was chosen Sales Associate of the Year! Each year, our Franchise Support Center acknowledges an employee within the Wild Birds Unlimited system across the United States and Canada. The employee who is chosen must demonstrate superior skills in salesmanship, customer service, the ability to go above and beyond all aspects of the position and has made a unique diffe…rence within the store. As all of you who have met Deena, know that she meets all of the criteria and then some. I nominated Deena for Sales Associate of the Year because she truly is an outstanding employee. She has a passion for birds, people, numerous hobbies, teaching almost anything and her ability to achieve the most out of life. Her work ethic is to be admired by many and her dedication to our customers is like none I have ever seen. Congratulations Deena!!
To laugh is to risk appearing a fool,
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement,
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return,
To live is to risk dying,
To hope is to risk despair,
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow,
But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow or live.
Chained by his servitude he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom.
Only a person who risks is free.
The pessimist complains about the wind;
The optimist expects it to change;
And the realist adjusts the sails.
