This is for Leigh, who at this moment has just a few hours left before she leaves work to join me as a partner in the business. It’s going to be a mixed bag of emotions, the wrench of leaving a job she loves, and (hopefully!) looking forward to more time with the family, as well as evolving and growing Hicksdesign into new areas.
I just wanted to take time out to say publicly how much I admire her for taking this brave, hard decision, and I hope I can as supportive to her as she was to me when I started freelancing. I couldn’t have made the leap without her encouragement, now it’s her turn to make that leap.
I really hope you enjoy your last day at Harcourt, Leigh, I’m so lucky to have you as a wife and a partner. I’m looking forward to what we can do together…
