Happy Thanksgiving

Updated: Aug 9, 2022

Hope this email finds you well.

I wanted to take a moment to write you and let you know how grateful and thankful all of us at Redfish Capital are for your friendship, your trust, and your business.

As many of you are aware this has been a tremendously busy year for us. The rebranding, the new office design and move, the new hires, and COVID, among other things. There have been more than a few times this year when I would finally get home, sit down in my recliner, and ask myself what in the world am I doing!

During the frenetic and busy times, I sometimes find it tough to sort through the day-to-day task list and reflect on what is really important in life. I have had an amazing reminder of this lately that I wanted to share with you.

The previous office location was directly above the building’s gym. About the same time every day, there was a person or a couple of people, that would go in to work out. Whenever they did, they liked to turn the music up pretty loud. Now I do not have an issue with music...I often have music playing in the office when I am working...but what they listened to while working out was not quite office background music if you will. In addition to that, these people were workout grunters. If you are not familiar with this type of person, they are the ones who enjoy grunting and screaming with every rep they do. If you are a baseball fan, simply picture Zack Greinke playing catch below you loudly grunting with every pitch he throws. Not quite the atmosphere I prefer when working or conducting client meetings.

So much of my excitement in moving was to rid myself of “grunt fest” that occurred daily. I quickly learned that my new office came with its own set of noise. I now find myself directly over a different business that tends to get loud as well. But this noise is completely different than before.

The business below me caters to children with special needs and specializes in children with autism. I am not an expert on autism and can only tell you what I see and hear. I do see kids with various levels of function...some walk in, some are wheeled in, and some are carried in.
