April is shaping up to be an incredible month for all of Generation V! From a business perspective, most have been positively impacted by the new comp plan enhancements and one of our most exciting new markets is just weeks away from launching. There is a buzz in the air, and the seeds of hard work and dedication are coming into full bloom. The timing is quite serendipitous as we are seeing this exact process happen in nature with the arrival of spring and one of my favorite months in ViridianóAprilís Earth Awareness Month.
If you are new to the Viridian community or have been in hibernation, now is the perfect time to come out and meet all of the amazing Gen Víers. Through the efforts of the Sustainability Council, corporate, and a team of dedicated Associates, Aprilís calendar is chock-full of local sustainability events right in your backyard. The goal of the council this year is to have monthly sustainability initiatives and two events in each of our markets for April. It was a challenge everyone was eager to undertake. We will see ongoing communications going out with details on the time, date and locations of these events. From beach and river cleanups, to tree plantings and even a New York City rooftop project, there is certainly something that will appeal to your interest to volunteer at and attend.
So whatís the big deal in attending these sustainability events, anyway? Well, if you truly want to get to the heart of what Viridian is, I say you see it by meeting its community of heart- and service-centered people; people who are dedicated to taking action to leave this planet better for future generations. It is also a great opportunity to invite your customers and show them the Viridian mission in action!
My first Viridian sustainability event, a beach cleanup almost three years ago, is forever time-stamped in my heart. The day marked my very first one as a fulltime entrepreneur and helped to reignite my personal passion for creating a sustainable family lifestyle with my husband Jay and our children Audrey and Miles. The day before, I had worked my very last day in corporate America and I was turning the page on a new chapter in life. As we picked up endless amounts of garbage off a local Connecticut beach that day, I looked around and realized that I was among some of the most fascinating and forward-thinking people I had met thus far in life; people Iím sure I would have never gotten to know well if I had not attended.
My hope is to see a sea of faces at these events to support Viridianís Earth Awareness Month. I know that after attending, someone just like me will have a story to tell about the huge impact thatís been made on their life.
See you there!
