I can’t believe the time has come to say goodbye to ROI Online. I feel like Miss America doing my final walk on stage. I mean, does it really surprise y’all that I made that reference?
As I complete my journey at ROI, I wanted to write a letter/blog to my coworkers, clients and other people I have formed relationships with through this company. Honestly, it’s not a "goodbye" — it’s a "see you later!"
Maybe I should rewind a bit.
A little over two weeks ago, I accepted a position in Fort Worth. It is going to be an awesome step professionally, and I couldn’t be more proud of myself for achieving something this great so early on in my career.
That being said, I could not have done it without the relentless pushing from Steve Brown. He has believed in me the past three-and-half years. It’s crazy to think about how much you can learn and grow in that amount of time.
When I joined ROI, I was a meek 23-year-old straight out of college. Now, I’m happy to say I’m a strong 26-year-old with the confidence and skills to do anything I set my mind to. I can easily say that is because of all of the coaching and mentoring I have received at ROI.
To my clients, both past and present, thank you all for growing with me. You have been a part of the journey as much as the people I work with.
To my coworkers, thank you for always making me laugh and enjoy coming to work every day. Y’all were one of the best parts about working at ROI. We have all been through so much together and we will always have an unbreakable bond. Thank you for all the amazing memories!
To my office parents, Steve and Tiffany, thank you for always believing in me. You two have helped me get through so much, and become a stronger, better person for it. Y’all have made such an indelible impact on my life that I can’t put my gratitude into words.
I am sad to leave ROI, but I am excited that I was able to have the opportunity to grow and learn so much throughout the past few years. If you want to keep up with me once I’m gone, make sure to follow me and my blog, Pieces of Ash, and on Instagram @ashleyagodfrey.
