It's so important to take the time to celebrate your accomplishments. Big victories, little victories, things you've just started working on, or things you've been working on for YEARS, they should all be celebrated! So grab a glass of wine or a cocktail and "cheers" to what you've done.
For our dance studio it was definitely Time to celebrate! I knew I wanted to reward our staff for all of our studio's accomplishments in 2017. We had a record year and it was finally time to take a tiny break and look back at how hard we all worked.
We started the night at Breakout Waikiki for some great staff bonding. If you've never been, you get locked in a room with clues and you have to figure your way out. It was a BLAST and we will definitely be doing it again. We didn't make it out within the allotted time, but we were really really close! Maybe I shouldn't have chosen the room with a 13% success rate... oh well!
After that, we walked over to Eating House 1849 at the International MarketPlace for an amazing "farm to table" experience. The food was delicious, the drinks were delicious, the company was extraordinary, and the staff were appreciative. Every year we do a Secret Santa too, and that's always fun to try and guess who gave what. It's also very telling of how well we know each other.
2018...we are coming for YOU!
