Giving Thanks All Month Long

At Kalli Collective, we’re thankful for a lot of things. Things that get us out of bed in the morning. Things that motivate us to provide the best possible service to our clients. Things that bring us joy.

We figured, since November is the month closely tied to giving thanks, we’d show gratitude to the people, places and things that give us raditude, one day at a time. This list barely scratches the surface of what we’re thankful for, but that just means we’ll have more for next year and the years to come.

Day 1: Our Team

Day One: Our Team

We are incredibly thankful for our team here at Kalli Collective. Team work makes the dream work after all. We are so lucky to be working with TEAM players. We're not just coworkers, we're friends working towards the same goal. Life is always a little sweeter when the work environment is full of friends, even if it is digitally.

Day 2: What We Get To Do

Day 2: What We Get To Do

Every day we get to do what we love doing best! Helping advisors connect with their clients through our work. What more could we ask for?

Day 3: Our Clients

Day 3: Our Clients

We wouldn’t be the rag-tag crew of dreamers and doers we are without the trust and support of our awesome clients. They’re the reason we fill our coffee cups in the morning and why we have so much fun every day. For that, dear clients, we thank you.

Day 4: Our Referrals

Day 4: Our Referrals

A HUGE thanks to our clients who refer us to others. While we specialize in building your brand online, we always appreciate the return by word of mouth.

Day 5: When We Get A Compliment

Day 5: When We Get A Compliment

There’s nothing that makes the blood rush to our rosy cheeks more than receiving a compliment from our clients. We appreciate the compliments thrown our way. It tells us we’re on the right track!

Day 6: The Internet

Day 6: The Internet

We’re thankful for that universe of information in the palm of our hand, the internet. Without the internet, we wouldn’t have the resources to create content, the means to connect with clients, or the ability to watch a video of a corgi in a cowboy hat instead of writing a social media post about how we’re thankful for the internet.

Day 7: We Get To Go To Bed Earlier

Day 7: We Get To Go To Bed Earlier

We’re thankful we get to fall back…into bed. Here’s to Daylight Savings Time, giving us a guilt-free excuse for hitting the hay a little earlier.

Day 8: Ashley's Birth

Day 8: Ashley's Birth

We couldn’t devote the entire month of November to the things we’re thankful for without mentioning the birth of our rockstar, super-powered, esteemed, nigh-invincible, wizard-esque, creative wunderkind, Ashley Garland.

Day 9: Our Friends And Family

Day 9: Our Friends And Family

Whether it be by blood, or by choice, we know who our families are. Their support, love and affection hasn’t gone unnoticed and we’re forever grateful for them!

Day 10 Our Pets

Day 10: Our Pets

Furry or not, we love our pets dearly and we can never repay them for the love they show us, even if they do knock stuff off of our shelves or steal food directly from our plate. We are forever grateful for their presence in our lives.

Day 11: Our Veterans

Day 11: Our Veterans

Without the brave efforts and selfless sacrifice of our veterans, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy several of the liberties we sometimes take for granted. Thank you, vets!

Day 12: Office Windows

Day 12: Office Windows

Completely transparent, but with enough mystery to keep us captivated, they whisk us to another world without having to move a muscle. No office space would be complete without a window that allows us to break from the workday doldrums and stare at a chubby squirrel, or wonder what those suspicious kids are doing with that stick. Thank you for bringing the pane.

Day 13: Working From Home

Day 13: Working From Home

The Kalli Collective crew consists of talented folks scattered across the country. Without the ability to work from home, we wouldn’t be able to assemble our dream team and create amazing content for our clients. Getting to do meetings in sweatpants is also a bonus.

Day 14: Flexible Schedules

Day 14: Flexible Schedules

Dolly had it right about working 9-to-5…it’s all taking and no giving. That’s why we’re thankful for flexible work schedules that allow creativity to happen whenever. So if you’re 6-to-3, 9-to-5 (am), or even 8-to-10 then 2-to-5 then 10-to-midnight, it’s all good.

Day 15: Adobe Software

Day 15: Adobe Software

Where would we be without Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects or InDesign? All of this Adobe software help us get our jobs done each and every day.

Day 16: Our Health

Day 16: Our Health

The beating heart of any great company is the beating hearts of its employees. At KC, we’re thankful for our health and encourage healthy habits to live the best lives we can (we do eat lots of tacos, though).

Day 17: Medical Advances

Day 17: Medical Advances

Medical advances are the reason we are here today. Whether we be healthy or otherwise, the medical industry is working around the clock to make sure we live better and longer lives.

Day 18: Financial Advisors

Day 18: Financial Advisors

Without financial advisors, many of us would be lost about what to do with our money to ensure a secure financial future. That’s why we’re thankful for their vast knowledge and skilled advice. Also, without financial advisors, we’d be out of a job…so that’s nice too.

Day 19: Our Business Partners

Day 19: Our Business Partners

People like Charesse Spiller at Level Best, Laura Garfield and Sharon Gottatula at Idea Decanter, Brian Hart at Flackable and our Event Consultant Angela York, we’re raising our glasses in your honor. We feel so gosh darn lucky to serve advisors side-by-side with people like you. THANK YOU for all you do for us. CHEERS TO YOU!

Day 20: The New SEC Rules

Day 20: The New SEC Rules

We're thankful that the Securities and Exchange Commission finalized an amendment to the Investment advisor Marketing rule this past May. With it comes the ability (depending on your firm’s compliance regulations) for an advisor to be able to enable comments on their social media accounts, collect endorsements, receive ratings and add testimonials.

Day 21: Our Savvy Advisors

Day 21: Our Savvy Advisors

We appreciate out Savvy Advisors more than they know. From clients to people in need of our handy, dandy resources, we thank you.

Day 22: Investors

We’ve talked about where we’d be without ADVISORS, but where would advisors be without INVESTORS? Cheers to you, investors, for taking the risks, calling the shots and controlling your futures!

Day 23: Financial Advice

Any advice we can get we’ll take, especially financial advice. We are very grateful for all of the financial advice we are able to provide to our client’s clients.

Day 24: Nature

Day 24: Nature

From the hummingbirds that flutter in our gardens’ to the vast Red Rock Canyon, nature provides us with so much. Great views that make our eyes widen and the big smiles that come with them. We appreciate all nature has to offer.

Day 25: Time To Gather

Day 25: Time To Gather

Whether we’re gathering around the turkey, table, fire or grandpa for story time we’re always thankful for the time we get to share with our loved ones.

Day 26: Leftovers!

Turkey sandwiches, turkey casserole, turkey and green bean mega-morning breakfast scramble. Any way you slice it, we LOVE leftovers.

Day 27: Holiday Decorations

Day 27: Holiday Decorations

From broomsticks and jack-o-lanterns, to colorful leaves and pilgrim hats, to mistletoe and holly, holiday decorations always put a smile on our faces. We’re thankful for them and the people that take the time to put them up every holiday (about time you guys got some recognition, right?!).

Day 28: Warm Drinks

Day 28: Warm Drinks

Whether you’re a hot chocolate champ or praise the power of pumpkin spice, this season’s all about the warm drinks that melt away any and all bad vibes.

Day 29: Cyber Deals

Day 29: Cyber Deals

We’ve already talked about how grateful we are for the internet, but we’re especially thankful we get to do our holiday shopping online instead of bulldozing our way through fellow shoppers on Black Friday. We’ll take shopping in our slippers over bruised elbows any day.

Day 30: Non-Profit Organizations
