Last week we asked players to nominate their Club for the best “Life Lessons Through the Club Experience.” There were a number of wonderful nominations, but the two that stood out were both related to the recent flooding in the Carolinas. Congratulations to 👞ONE STEP BEYOND👡 and ☕Let’s get perky☕
From ONE STEP BEYOND:
Life’s Lessons is a great way to describe the experience on my team, One Step Beyond. Although the team is not yet a month since it’s inception we have proven to be cohesive, and supportive of each team member. Our team represents many places over the globe including countries in Europe, Australia, Canada and many different States in the USA.
Many of our team mates live in the South/North Carolina & Virginia regions. During Florence the team was able to give support and remind them the importance of friends and family. We have several people who are currently dealing with severe illness. The team applauds our successes when we achieve a milestone or lends a sympathetic ear when we have had to face yet another hurdle.
he most important Life Lesson I think we’ve learned is that we are more than just team players, we are people who are important to each other. Someone is always there for us when we need a friend to chat with or listen. We cheer each other on. This is what makes a great team. The common goals, the thing that makes you smile, the feeling of friendship and knowing that someone has your back. This is what makes a great team. Watch out Tripeaks, we are One Step Beyond !
And from Let’s get perky:
When I read that you guys wanted Life lessons through Club experience the first person I thought of was my Club’s fearless leader Becka Mclamb or BECKA NC USA as she’s known in our Club (Let’s get perky). Becka let us know through Club Chat that she might have to be off line for a little bit because of Hurricane Florence and our whole Club of course wished her well and we all kept a check on her until the storm was over.
But that wasn’t the big lesson I learned. After the storm passed Becka had lost power, but when she got back on line she sent a message to let us know that she would again be offline for a bit because she was going to be helping the clean up efforts for others who were hit harder by the storm than she was. The lesson I learned from her was that just because things don’t affect us in a major way, it doesn’t mean it didn’t affect others and we should always try to help people in their time of need.
