Fighting childhood poverty, providing pet-assisted therapy in nursing homes, and memorializing a lost friend by creating a charitable foundation that improves the lives of children through healthcare and education are just a few of the causes some of our employees volunteer their time for and it’s not to be overlooked. These members of TurboNation are making an impact in their communities, on their own time, for causes they care deeply about and it’s incredibly humbling to read the stories of those who are finding ways to give back.
Life is better when you bring excitement to what you do and if you're passionate about everything you do, you do those things with a positive attitude, a sense of purpose, and with a level pride. When I first got into the information technology field in the late 90s, I found that an old saying I once heard suddenly was applicable to me: “if you do a job you love, you will never have to work a day in your life." I had taken a passionate hobby of mine, information technology, and turned it into a very satisfying career that paid me very well. Having said that, it wasn’t my only passion and I knew that I had to find a work-life balance that allowed me to follow these passions.
