True Story: in 2006, Micha, Nick and I were throwing the football around the office at 6760 University, talking big thoughts, thinking big talk. We came to the consensus that accolades are great and all, but the biggest award that we could ever strive for was to be considered as the BEST place to work in San Diego. To be considered the best among your team was the pinnacle of success for us and earlier last year, we set out to accomplish this goal in 2009.
Fast forward to today (4/7/2009), we received a letter stating the following from San Diego Business Journal:
"Congratulations! Out of all of the companies who participated in the San Diego Business Journal's Best Places to Work Awards, only 50 companies have qualified. We are pleased to announce your firm is one of the San Diego Business Journal's 50 Best Places to Work in San Diego and will be recognized at our upcoming event."
It goes on to read, "Hor d'oeuvres will be served and beverages will be available. Parking is complimentary." Needless to say, as people with a blog called BoostStrapping, we're feelin' the free. Who's with me?
To say we're stoked about this would be an understatement. We've set out to be a company made up of best friends who have fun, laugh and beat up on our clients' competitors. Thank you San Diego Business Journal. But really, more importantly, thank you to everyone who makes up the eBoost family. In no order: Katita Banana, Alli G, Killer Kill from Deville, Dee, Jen "Quick & Dirty", Nick "Rainmaker", E-Sauce, F-Bomb, Ambah, Geakerson, MC Lite, DJ Lokal, Torres, Tat, DJ E-Dobbs, Petar Pablo, AP, Early B, Neil "Hearts-a-Flutta" Dutta, CK1, Justin Credible, Kolb Stone, Steph Infection, Mini Micha, Doody, East Bay, TP, THE Jason Kirby, Beau-dacious, Ed-vard-son, Nicole, Special K, Marcel Marcel, Nickel, and Big Euro Sexy Micha. I have no qualms with saying, this award is because of us.
Pop the play to see a vignette of Preparing for the Upturn and a quickie retrospective of a few events that helped shaped eBoost. You know what time it is.
P.S. - Coincidentally, we will be out of office tomorrow on a team-building exercise in Julian. Alls we know is that there will be an obstacle course. The interns may or may not make it back... That wouldn't nullify our award, would it...?
