Well, boys and girls…tomorrow is a big day for Well Dunne! It marks the one-year anniversary of doing this blog. In that year, I’ve had the honor of talking with so many of you…bright, intelligent, talented, creative people. My favorite kind of humans. I’ve heard your excitement about new challenges and opportunities…you’ve shared stories about wanting to move on and needing to move on. The business has changed a lot, but the people who do the marketing and weave that magic haven’t – you want to do the best creative work you can and ask that your employer respect, support and compensate you for your efforts.
Several of you have asked why I chose Well Dunne! Glad you asked. Dunne is my maiden name, and Well Dunne! is such a nice way to give someone a pat on the back. Well Bacon! is bad breakfast. The whole Dunne family has writing in their DNA, so it just seemed right, although I guarantee that if my father were still alive, he would always make a funny face when he heard the word ‘blog’.
This coming year, I’ll be adding video, more pictures, logos and news, and an exciting announcement is on the horizon that will be cause for more celebrations and toasting. Thanks for reading, thanks for sharing your ups and down, your news and views…and, with our glasses in the air, may we all share great, healthy, uplifting times in the next 365 days.
My favorite Think About This applies to us all: “The sages do not consider that making no mistakes is a blessing. They believe, rather, that the great virtue of man lies in his ability to correct his mistakes and continually to make a new man of himself. “ ~ Wang Yang-Ming (1472-1529)
