Many spent 2017 drowning in a lagoon polluted with angst, opposition, and fear --
For myself, 2017 awakened me from my frollick in the valley of stagation sparking me to begin my climb toward a career.
Emilia's Acrobatics and Gymnastics Club, what was and oh, what was becoming of my part-time passenger ride to make ends meet.
Whent the owner's son, Yuri, took me aside for a chat, he shook me from my secretary position in the doldrums to honor me wih a license to steer --

-- and I was ready.

The heat, passion, and talent harboring within Emilia's were in ample supply
But something was missing; for 20-some years, business drudged in the fashion that most would declare as "dry".
Poor record keeping, advertising, and program quality left phrases like "okay", "decent", and "good enough" to compose our unwritten business model.
Yuri was driven to madness by just one simple question: why?

Plans to revamp EAGC swirled around the office, which suddenly became my office, as the title of office manager was granted to me,
New promotions, businss methods, and organization in action for our loyal customers to see.
We reinvented, rebranded, and reshaped EAGC, motivated by hunger to reach the summit
Equipped with an excess of elbowgrease and ideas, our trek up the mountain was steep, yet exhilarating and steady.

Along the strenuous trail, the familial bond between our team swelled through and through --
My tight-knit relationships with the coaches, office staff, and management fostered a comfortable warmth as they grew.
From valuable skills learned and genuine human connections acquired, to the achieved milestone of doubling monthly revenue upon our eighth month of efforts,
The last three-hundred-sixty-five saturated me with fulfillment, and demonstrated the limitless extent of what we can do.
