As a result, I am taking inventory of all the organizations, circle of friends and networking groups to which I belong. If I leave them tomorrow, will they "paint their hair pink" for me? If not, I am not giving enough of myself to them.

Yesterday Dynamite said farewell to our pink-haired, funny, charismatic and happy employee of over 2 1/2 years, Brianna Clark. Today she is moving to Portland, Oregon to be with her fiance and start a new life. In a show of support, the entire staff at Dynamite colored our hair pink temporarily. It was a day to remember and it has caused several moments of pause for me as I think about what one person can contribute to a company in such a short time.
