Bidtellectuals Share Their New Year’s Resolutions for 2022

Bidtellectuals Share Their New Year’s Resolutions for 2022

New Year’s Eve is one of the most exciting and refreshing times of the year. We all gather with family and friends to celebrate and reflect on the year, maybe drink a few too many glasses of champagne (just me?!) and eat an embarrassing amount of food. But when January 1st comes around, it is time to set new goals for the New Year. Check out what our Bidtellectuals New Year’s Resolutions are:

 

 

Happy New Year! I’m trying to spread more sunshine this year by giving out little compliments, whether it’s to strangers/people you see out and about or people I know… who doesn’t love a compliment! Bringing people more smiles, that’s the goal 🙂

Katie Broussard
Senior Account Strategist

 

In 2022 I’ve resolved to keep things in perspective & focus on balance. It’s easy to forget that any given situation is only as important as the value & meaning we assign it in our own mind, I’m reducing the airtime I give to energy-sucking & joy-depleting thoughts/people/situations.

Courtney Bonkowski
Director of Finance & HR

To try and %$#@ing swear less!!

Janelle Watanabe
Sales Director

Self Care & Self Love. More Patience.

Lisa Friedman
Director, Sales East

 

Get back on my peloton – which is currently being used to hang dry laundry!

Craig Aron
SVP Growth and Strategic Business Development

To be more patient and kind to myself, which will ultimately make me a better mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend & colleague.

Tamanna Ghazvini-Sousa
Sales Director, Canada

 

Read more books!

Nick Gomez
Product Manager

One of my new year’s resolutions is to write more. Goal is to write at least one article per month (sports, creative writing, reviews of media, etc.)

Kyle Kelly
Jr. Account Manager

 

 

My New Year’s resolution is to be more mindful of my mental and physical health through reflection and journaling.

Alexander Williams
Staff Accountant

I have made a resolution to improve the overall organizational efficiency of the R&D organization.
In addition, spend more “quality” time with family and friends. Life is too short!

Michael Conway
Chief Technology Officer

 

Travel more, explore new places, and make new memories. This includes skiing! 2022 I’m going to be a big skier 🙂

Charlotte Otremba
Director of Communications.& Marketing

This year my focus is being more creative musically in my spare time. Focussing on writing, performing, and producing music whenever I can get a spare second.

Jonathon Burden
Director of Sales, West Coast

 

One-Touch Rule: Always put things back where I found it: It’s simple, and yet I sometimes leave stuff laying around the house when the stuff has a little place in the home. Benefit? It reduces the “stuff” pile and I’ll never lose things (hopefully). I can’t take credit for this, I saw it on TikTok but I love it!

Give Back: I’ve committed to spending a few hours each week working with Second Chance Initiative and helping to spread the word of a great local organization.

Reduce Noise and Focus on What’s Important: I’ve always struggled with the power of “no”. I take on way too much and lose sight of what’s really important. And I don’t mean in the office – I mean personally. I’m always helping out friends with their side hustles and I love doing it – but if it takes away from my time with my family or when I need to focus on myself, then the answer is no.

Missy Steiner
VP of Marketing

Slow to anger, slow to speak, quick to listen.

Jason Boshoff
Chief Operating Officer

My goal is to make Bidtellect the best company anyone here has ever worked for. I am resolved to do all in my power and abilities to make that happen!

Lon Otremba
Chief Executive Officer

 

Some of my resolutions for 2022:
1. Be present. I want to cut down device usage :). Less time on social media, more time with family.
2. Have photographs printed… I miss printed photographs.
3. Ride that Peloton 😀

Carolina Escobar
Director of UI/UX

What we eat and drink has an impact on everything. This year I’m making it my goal to drink more water to help clear my mind, improve my concentration and improve my physical health. Cutting out caffeine was easy (thanks to giving me anxiety!). H20 here we go!

Yeni Gordillo
Creative Director

 

 

This year I am committed to getting healthy! I’ve gained the “COVID 20” and I’m dedicating myself to this resolution with hard work, discipline and consistency! Also, now that I’ve told you, I will need to stay accountable 🙂

Stacy McElhone
Junior Software Quality Engineer

My resolution for the year is to stay on my fitness GRIND! Trying to make sure I go to the gym and eat healthy as much as I know I should!

Thomas Follis
Accountant Management Intern

Around the Industry:

  • Retail ecommerce will continue to boom in 2022! According to eMarketer, after almost 50% growth in ecommerce channel ad spending during 2020, advertisers increased those allocations by another 27.8% in 2021, and the same rate of growth is predicted for 2022. Not only that, the share of total retail sales that occur online has “jumped an unprecedented amount’ and will continue to grow. It is clear that businesses online are doing very well, so it is imperative for them to take charge of their growth by utilizing the resources available out there, from picking a supportive checking account (https://www.moneyunder30.com/best-business-checking-accounts) to building on their digital marketing strategies to reach a wider audience.
  • So keep making discovery content: eMarketer estimates that 92.6% of US internet users ages 14 and older will browse, research, or compare products digitally via any device at least once this year, making them digital shoppers.
  • Spotify has added clickable ads to their podcasts, reports Adweek. The new feature, called a Call to Action card, offers a visual, clickable accompaniment to audio ads. The cards then linger as an interstitial ad on the podcast page, the episode page and the now playing view when the episode is playing. The cards will live on those surfaces for seven days or until the campaign ends.
  • According to eMarketer, US Digital Ad spending is expected to rise 13.6% to nearly $240 billion in 2022.
  • Is this what Google was waiting for when it delayed the phase out of cookies on Chrome? The United States Patent and Trademark Office this week granted Google a patent that describes how its technology can attribute a click without using cookies, reported Mediapost.

Bidtellectuals Share What’s At the Top of Their Holiday Wishlists

Bidtellectuals Share What’s At the Top of Their Holiday Wishlists

As the holiday season is in full swing, we asked Bidtellectuals to share what is at the top of their holiday wishlist. Whether you are asking for health and happiness or an item that has been on your list since childhood, we hope all your holiday wishes come true!

"A KitchenAid mixer is at the top of my wishlist!"

It would save my arms a lot of work when I’m kneading dough or whipping some meringue.

Alexander Williams, Staff Accountant

 

"I REALLLLLLLY hope Santa remembers a reMarkable tablet for me this year!"

I’ve been dreaming of this product since roughly 2006. I’m a total pen & stationery nerd, but I’m willing to put my paper away for the ability to have all of my notes in one place: organized, searchable, and at my fingertips.

Courtney Bonkowski, Director of Finance & HR

"There are no materialistic things that could compare to health and happiness for all."

Ok, that and a case of 2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Missy Steiner, VP of Marketing

"All I want for Christmas is for COVID to go away."

I’m so sick of this s***.  And on that note, I wish for health, happiness, and safety for all. 

Charlotte Otremba, Director of Communications & Marketing

 

"If I had a wishlist, this telescope would be on the top."

As much as I enjoy astronomy there’s never really a good time to “buy” a telescope. But can you really put a price on seeing the cosmos with your own eyes? If Santa ever wanted to bring me something really cool that he never got me when I was a kid, it’d totally be a telescope. 

Nathaniel Seenarine 

And some recent photos of Bidtellectuals spending time together despite the circumstances! We are grateful for team!

Happy Holidays! We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!

Bidtellectuals Share What They’re Grateful for This Year

Bidtellectuals Share What They’re Grateful for This Year

Thanksgiving is nearly here, so we asked Bidtellectuals what they are feeling grateful for this year. Despite its challenges (a lingering pandemic, political conflicts, general uncertainty, and adjusting to ever-changing circumstances), 2021 also saw hope for recovery and a brighter future: new emphasis on work-life balance, rapid medical advancements, and travel and business reopening. Here’s what our team is thankful this year. 

"My family"

Terah Bocchi, SVP of Sales

 

"I am so very thankful for all of my family."

Those I was born into and those I was not. The family who has reminded me that no matter what happens to you, in the face of your deepest challenges – you are loved.

Lisa Friedman, Director of Sales

"I am thankful for fermented grapes."

Missy Steiner, VP of Marketing

"I am grateful for people who are experts in their field."

Specifically, my veterinarian who helped Daisy after she ate 3 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!!!!

Janelle Watanabe, Director of Sales

 

"I am grateful for adding this little guy to our family!"

Craig Aron, SVP Growth and Strategic Business Development 

"In honor of Thanksgiving, I am grateful for my health and the health of my colleagues, family and friends."

I am also grateful to be living in the United States, where we still honor the Constitutional right for freedom of expression and religion.

Ryan Seaver, Director of Sales

"I'm grateful for my family and Starbucks 😉 "

Victoria Papadimas, Director, Performance Analytics

And some recent photos of Bidtellectuals spending time together despite the circumstances! We are grateful for team!

Happy Thanksgiving! We at Bidtellect are grateful for you!
