Celebrating 20 YEARS

Happy sparkly SMILEY DAY! And the sun returns here in VA just in time to solar power this SigComm 20 YEAR anniversary. Started May 1999 with credit card & my first Big Mac Apple and Epson America Inc. and Adobe products (Photoshop version 2) & rotating jokes on my fax cover sheets & penny candy in my zip disk FedEx packages to vendors.

What started as Significant Communication shortened to *SigComm*. Meanwhile, signy went to Signy and grew to be SIGNY. Ahhhh the changes of life. Soaking it up. GRATEFUL.

HUGE THANK YOUs to all my wonderful customers over the years. Here's to LIFE & celebrating!

"WORK SHOULD BE FUN" —SIGNY =) CHEERS y'all!

how great is this ad? Your creative has to be arresting. First & foremost. I have no idea about this service. Yet. I will check it out. But just had to share. Go for the unusual. Make people smile. Work + life should be fun = )

These days, I barely find time to make my own bed, much less give the oven a scrub down. After a long work day, I come home to cook, help the kids with homework and indulge in any little "me" time I can find. While I try to tidy up here and there, it seems like the list of household chores never e.....

That's what I'm talking about... =D LOVE RITA

That's what I'm talking about... =D LOVE RITA

Dear Head of Security,

I love Ed Sheeran. I have seen him in concert multiple times and every single time, he captivates me with his looper pedal and out-of-this-world guitar playing abilities. But the other night, I was more captivated by something else—someone else, I should say. It was one of your security guards dancing joyfully as she monitored her area with observant eyes, fancy footwork, and incredible energy.

This very special security guard radiated so much joy that every person who walked by stopped to soak her up. It didn’t matter what these passerbys looked like, where they came from, or where they were going, the smiling security guard embraced every single one like a long-lost friend.

Throughout the concert, I noticed the people in our section watching the security guard with pure delight. Her joy was contagious! She undoubtedly brightened the mood and outlook of hundreds of people that was then carried out into the world.

After the concert, I made a beeline for this beautiful human being. She immediately took my hands in hers and leaned in close.

“What is your name?” I asked.

“Rita,” she said beaming.

“Rita, you are love. You LOVE like it’s your job, and you enhanced the experience of an incredible concert by just being you. Thank you,” I gushed.

“Oh, my goodness!” the beautiful woman exclaimed, embracing me. “Tell my boss!” she laughed.

And so after much digging, I hunted down a name and address, and I’m hoping my letter reaches you.

You need to know the profoundly positive impact your employee had on a large number of guests at your venue.

I’m absolutely certain there are only a few people in this world that could outshine Ed Sheeran.

Rita is one of them.

And she is the reason I will be coming back to this venue — but only to section E & D where Miss Rita protects with abundant joy and makes all us want to love like it’s our job too.

Only love today,

Rachel Macy Stafford
New York Times bestselling author of Hands Free Mama, Hands Free Life, and Only Love Today

--------------------------------------------

Friends, I don’t have to tell you the world is hurting in so many places, in so many ways. But Rita reminds us that one person can GREATLY enhance any moment, elevate any mood, and offer hope that sticks to us as we travel through life.

Who’s in your section? Look around as you work, live, and travel in the week ahead. How might you bring acceptance, love, positivity, and delight to others? Let’s all be like Rita. Let’s love like it’s our job. Thank you for being part of The Hands Free Revolution.
