In Praise of Allison, etc.
Anita Sharpe on Business
I've been thinking a lot lately about the amazing group of people who have come together to create Worthwhile Magazine. From the editorial/design side to the advertising/business side, everyone is highly accomplished, incredibly talented and a joy to work with. This includes our fabulous interns (I don't even want to think about the prospect of our tech-whiz, Alex Ruimy, returning to college.)
I feel compelled to highlight the performance of one of our photographers, Allison Shirreffs, who is currently in San Francisco to take several feature shots for the magazine. (I just added another one to her plate, which she is squeezing in tonight.) Our design director, Jennifer Turner, called her this morning to see if there was any way Allison could take a Friday afternoon photo in Atlanta.
Allison said she'd take the red-eye out at midnight Thursday, try to catch a quick nap and she'd be there. 'No problem.'
Imagine what the world of work would be like if every talented person had this attitude, not to mention energy.
