Buckeye BBC - Monroe TAKEOVER PART 1: Brought to you by Chance, the eager learner

    We are on our way to Michigan! Joe, the DJ. Sean, the guy I trust to keep me alive if I happen to be bleeding out. Austin, the guy that knows every person in Columbus. And myself, eager to learn about everything this trip can offer. We set out early in the morning, stopped only twice for food and restroom breaks. Not knowing what Michigan has to hold or how people would be compared to Columbus, Ohio.       

    When we got to our hotel later that night the thing immediately we all seem to do systematically was finding how to squeeze our things into 1 room. Without knowing the people around me very well things could get awkward quickly. Luckily for me, we all got to know each other with minimal effort because I enjoy sharing unimportant information which is why I have a blog now. But we all took turns sharing information in the hot tub. WHAT HAPPENS IN THE HOT TUB STAYS IN THE HOT TUB! 

A week later we all left better people the end.
Stay tuned for the next episode. This blog was brought to you partially in part by Chance.

Buckeye BBC Travels: Boise and Gatlinburg

After an amazing year full of growth, expansion, and awards the Management Team at Buckeye BBC has taken some time for a little fun!  Our work hard, play hard is something we truly do live so even though we enjoy what we do we like to take some time to get away as well! 

Our first trip was to Boise, ID.  Account Manager, Brad also earned to go along on this trip for all of his hard work in his short time with Buckeye BBC.  Because we believe in no seniority and everything is earned based on effort not time, even though he has only been with us for less than six months he has proven himself as a top leader in the company and has moved up quickly.

While in Boise we visited some local favorites in the Meridian for great food, enjoyed the beautiful mountain views, and had a fun field day full of events and competition!  The weather was great for our trip and it was a nice getaway from our everyday life in Ohio!  We were sad to head home but excited to get back and continue to grow and apply what we learned from the managers from all across the country!

A few short weeks later the Management Team was at it again traveling to Gatlinburg, TN!  They stayed in a gorgeous log cabin in the Smokey Mountains and really had a chance to unplug and relax! While in Tennessee they visited Ober and rode the ski mountain coaster as well as had old fashion photos taken.  A trip to Ripley's Odditorium and a haunted house were also part of the agenda.  Our trip was during Oktoberfest so we enjoyed some great food and a moonshine tasting! Check out more pictures in our youtube video below! 

Traveling is something we love to do and we are grateful to have the freedom to get to do some of the things we have always wanted to do!  We set big goals here at Buckeye BBC and when we hit those goals we reward ourselves!  We plan to continue to love our work hard, play hard lifestyle and travel the country and beyond!
