Change Is Inevitable, Growth Is Optional...

"Growth is never by mere chance;

it is the result of forces working together."

Can you believe that it is 2017? The end of a year always has me excited for a fresh year with new goals, exciting projects, and growth. Plus of course, looking back at the past year for takeaways, smiles, and memories.

This year at Swazy we decided to do something we’ve never done before, and invite you, our clients and friends to take a look back at a few of our favorite growth moments of 2016 to celebrate the year we’ve had. 

While I am at it let me introduce myself, my name is Jodi and I started working at Swazy & Alexander in August. I am Swazy's link to all things Online Marketing, Social Media & Website oriented. I get to do what I love every day and share it with all of you! I actually grew up right down the street. If you had asked me over 15 years ago when I graduated from Emerson College in Boston and was living and working in Los Angeles if I thought I would ever end up in the very town I grew up in I would have answered with a resounding, No! But after much exploration and living everywhere from Boston to Boulder to LA I knew there was no place better to bring up my two boys. So here I sit every day in Newburyport typing away on my MacBook about anything and everything that makes Swazy & Alexander Landscaping what it is. My go-to "growth" moment of the year was easy to pinpoint. I joined this team and became a part of something I truly believe in and can be excited about on a daily basis. There is nothing better that enjoying coming to work every day!

So, enough about me let's talk about what the rest of the team recounted as their standout moments of Growth this year.
