Passion and Permission to Unplug

Photo Years ago, when I owned a large size contract embroidery company in Greensboro, NC- I was lucky enough to do business with the Orvis Company. Like I always do, I worked long, hard days back then, flying ( I got my first pilot's license back then..) and food were my only real hobbies outside of my growing business.

And then I met the good folks at Orvis, and memories of boyhood day trips spent fishing in the Northeast were awakened. Orvis gave me a lot of business back then, but most importantly they gave me the gift of a great new sport and the ability to see nature in a whole new way. They taught me the craft of flyfishing and gave me a hobby I could be passionate about. 

Since then I have been fortunate enough to fish Big Sky Montana, streams in New Mexico, Virginia and throughout my home state here in AZ.  Flyfishing has given me the opportunity to share the sport with my family, friends and even combine it with new business which is a fun change from the main markets I serve. 

Turns out flyfishing lodges are providing their own corporate outings... and corporations plan R& R corporate retreats to flyfishing destinations. A good reminder that we can all be passionate about an outside craft or hobby, and find a way to take our knowledge and passion and relate it to the business we are in..

Photo Yet to keep that passion for what we do alive, it's important we give ourselves permission to unplug. So tomorrow morning, I won't be doing my typical eu inc. invoicing, won't be answering the the phone at the office, and you won't find me in your email inbox. Instead, I will be recharging ...ahem,.. researching thread colors, on the banks of Canyon Creek..
