It’s one thing to push eight random people into a room and say, “Okay. Now bond. BOND.” But between all of the work we’ve created together for each other and for ourselves, I’ve realized how grateful I am to have each and every one of you in the room with me. I trust you, I respect you, and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Happy Valentine’s Day comrades.
