Best Happy Hour Spots to Celebrate Your Wins
February 20, 2019
Let’s face it, work can be challenging at times. Whether you are in the office late to prep for a client launch, leveling up on account work or finalizing a comprehensive crisis communication plan, finding the time to celebrate your wins can often get lost amongst the workplace chaos.
As working professionals, we spend a lot of time obsessing about the future. Yet, when we accomplish a goal, we have been conditioned to immediately ask ourselves “what now?” Next time you crush a new business pitch or lead a successful company launch, take a second to slow down and celebrate yourself.
