I Am One In A Million


I received a surprise this morning and was honored in a work meeting along with a few other people.
I am in sales and received an award for generating over a million dollars in earned premium for the department that I work in.
I had also earned over $500,000 in another department but they didn't count those figures.
I received a nice plaque that says:


Million Dollar Club


This certifies that
Rachel G
has not only reached the
One Million Dollar Milestone
but, by doing so, has confirmed that
She is one in a million


It was signed by the V.P., A.V.P. and my supervisor.
I also received $50 in American Express gift checques to spend however I want.
I do get regular sales bonuses but this was in addition to that just as a small thank you.
So, today I am no longer bitchy but am feeling pretty good because for the first time in a long time I actually feel appreciated at work.

Excellent Rachel!! Just what you needed :-) I remember receiving my 1 year certificate from work and I was flying high, just because it's the first job I've ever had where I felt like they knew their employees and cared enough to say hey we know you've been here for a year, we wanted to say thanks, etc. It's a fabulous feeling - have a great day Rachel!!!

Congratulations on your achievement. Recognition at work is OK, but I still like cash better. Have fun with the gift card....

Congratulations Rachel! We already knew that you were one in a million, but it never hurts to have official confirmation.

And a belated Congratulations!

I hope it's not so late that you've already spent it all. But if you have, hope it was fun for all involved.
