In 2010, I had the pleasure of being involved with a home makeover for a very deserving family in Savannah. The home, located in Ardsley Park, was a great one to work with, not to mention being in a great neighborhood on Abercorn Street. They Extreme Home crew literally remodeled the home in a week, and I was there to perform any repairs needed to the furniture before the reveal. I had done set work for TV commercials before for another large retailer, but it was nothing like this.
Havertys furniture provided all of the furnishings for the home, and as a former employee of the company, I was excited to be among friends for the lead up to handing the home back over to the owners. Everyone owes it to themselves to find meaning and purpose in their work, and this was an occasion that allowed a multitude of people to find it if they had never really looked for it before.
Fortunately for me, there always seems to be the opportunity to do kind things for people. Restoring an inherited table, repairing a broken lift chair for an elderly client, or even just telling someone how to care for a precious piece of furniture brings me happiness because I’m able to help others. I’ve found that if your work is more about making a positive difference in other people’s lives, you benefit as much or more yourself.
