Saying goodbye is never an easy thing. You want to hold on to people and memories as strongly as you can. I think about the various moments of goodbye that I’ve had in my life: the deaths of loved ones, graduations, or making a move to a new town or a new job.
As an employee of a few different casino companies, I’ve had the pleasure of saying hello to new properties (either newly opened or acquired) and the people who give them life. Today, I start a new process: saying goodbye to one of our properties. For a variety of business reasons, the company I work for has chosen to a sell this property to a new operator, one that I hope will love and care for it and the wonderful people who inhabit it.
In the five years that I have worked with this team, I’ve had great fun working together with them and making new friends. I’ll miss them, but I’ll hold on to some great memories. The good news is that these transactions take time. So, we have an opportunity to create more memories.
You never really know when it’ll be time to say goodbye. Take advantage of every opportunity to create lasting memories.
