I never in a million years could have imagined that my 1 year anniversary at Intuit would come in the middle of such a world changing event (if you had even put “global pandemic” on my Bingo card, I would have called you crazy).
But, it is indeed a time of both celebration and reflection over the last year and the work our Community teams have done.
I am very thankful to work with such amazingly talented team members whose passion, intelligence and grit have been tested during these tough times and an organization who has truly looked out for the best interests of their employees in keeping us safe.
I am so very proud of the work we have done and continue to do to help our customers.
Some years ago, I wrote a post about the feeling we were left with after 9/11, and imagined that time would be the most challenging, defining and symbolic event in this New Yorkers life. Just 19 years later, we against are faced with an event of even bigger scope, and we, like the world continue to fight on. It’s the kind of spirit that makes me proud to be a New Yorker, but can weigh heavily on my mind at times.
With that in mind, I’d like to take a moment to pause and offer a reminder to take care of each other – now and always – and when the days are darkest and when they are brighter. I have no idea how this is all going to turn out, but here’s hoping the future we will build when this is all over will be filled with even more love, compassion, respect, and thoughtfulness than the world we have now. We will survive, but we will only thrive if we do it together.
Cheers and love to you and yours. Stay safe.
