In 2010, I am proud to say Articulate is growing. So far, we’re on target to be up 50 percent over 2009, and it speaks to the great team we’ve got here and the long-standing relationships we’ve built along the way. But there is another metric for growth of which that I’m perhaps even prouder: The growth of the Articulate family.
It’s hard for a small business to not feel like a family sometimes – the good and the bad, the comfortable relationships and the dysfunction, we’ve got it all. But the birth announcements and Christmas card greetings on the Articulate refrigerator are my favorite reminders of the family we’ve built.
• Megan Garnett’s daughter Siena, just born this February – her mom’s return to work last month was not a moment too soon.
• Bonnie Biggee’s third child and first daughter, Paige, born in March – sons Ryan and Ethan and dog-bro Leo are all smiles, and we’re still trying to coerce Bonnie into moving back to Manhattan from the wilds of Connecticut.
• Shulamit Gershenson’s son Eitan and daughter Gaia, all moving to Florida – though it’s hard to imagine Shulamit there.
• Jennifer Buchhalter’s son Harrison and daughter Marley – Mom Jen is going like gangbusters internally at Cisco up in Boston.
Articulate the business is healthy and happy (most of the time!), and I’m delighted to report the same thing for all the Articulate babies!
