What does November mean to you?

Tamala Bradham

November signifies the last month of autumn- a time when the leaves change colors and fall to the ground in the northern hemisphere. We spend our weekends raking leaves and then jumping into them!

It is a time of remembrance, an opportunity for reflection, and recognition that some things do come to an end. With Thanksgiving on the horizon, we may show our gratitude and appreciation to our friends, family, and colleagues with notes.

Currently, I'm participating in a 21-day gratitude challenge at work where we share three things we are grateful for each day. The theme seems to be centered around warmth! 

November may be many of those things I just shared, but it can also be the start of a new adventure, a time to take risks and do the unexpected.

It was the month of November when Dr. Houston shared his vision of 3C and asked for me to be a partner in the company. I've known Todd for over 25 years, and I've always been impressed with his willingness to step outside his comfort zone. He is a remarkable teacher, an incredible clinician, and a dear friend. Plus, he said I would get to work with the nicest person, Dr. Scott Palasik, he has ever known! So how could I say no?  

Lately, we have talked every day. We have been busy writing grants, producing content, and recruiting excellent, knowledgeable people to share their professional wisdom so we can all benefit. There have been times that we were uncertain about reaching payroll and even had a check bounce. However, we have been surrounded by amazing people who believe in 3C Digital Media Network through it all.

We continue to learn each day, acknowledging that mistakes are made, or things don't go as planned. But, the real secret of success is willing to fall into the leaves and not be scared or worried. 

Enjoy the journey and learn from each experience. If we remain afraid, we may miss our true calling. Mistakes happen, but life would be pretty dull if we were all perfect!

November is not the end, but the next adventure that is about to start. So what are you going to do next?

Connect, Communicate, and Collaborate. That IS the 3C way!
