What APT is Thankful For in 2020
APT is taking the holiday season to reflect on the past year. As crazy as this year has been and continues to be, it reminds us to celebrate what makes us thankful.
First and foremost, the health and happiness of our TEAM at APT. While challenges arose in the workplace due to COVID-19, it offered us the opportunity to streamline our remote working environment and maintain positive momentum forward. Learning how to work together remotely has been an easy transition for us at APT. Blessed with a self-motivated and dedicated team, we remain confident in our ability to face any challenge 2021 will bring.
A Note from Our Owners
Andy Taylor CEO
This year I am incredibly thankful for the steadfast commitment demonstrated by my family, friends, and coworkers. Like many parents, I’ve watched my children attempt to deal with considerable changes in their school and social lives. The immense mental and physical health impact surprised and worried me in ways only a parent can understand.
My internal reflection on the challenges we all face underscores my faith that I live in an “illusion of control” of my life. In reality, I cannot control anything but my actions and reactions to the changing world. With that in mind, I am thankful that our federal government provided disaster relief programs that were a lifesaver for small businesses like APT.
I am grateful that our customers have stuck by us and continue to seek out APT’s help for next year. My coworkers at APT believe in each other, and we can get through this tough year together. Every day I am blessed with a patient and understanding wife who inspires me with her strength.
Finally, I am thankful that my children know that they can count on their parent’s unconditional love – no matter what. A national Thanksgiving holiday is an excellent opportunity to reflect and come back strong in 2021.
Scott McGaugh CRO
With the end of 2020 approaching, I realize how blessed I am with my family and career. While stress is a part of everyday life, my time here at APT has proven that stress does not have to be all-consuming when surrounded by the right people. I am so thankful for my wife and son’s love and support in allowing me to take a leap of faith from a secure position and enter the unknown of being a business owner.
Andy is not only a friend but the ideal business partner for me. He positively challenges me in so many ways while remaining humble enough to allow me to challenge him. As we reboot in 2021 with a core team at APT, I am fortunate to have this team beside me. We look to grow our business into something we can all truly be proud of for years to come. Thank you to both our new and existing clients for your support.
Thankful for the Future
At APT, we are a family. We value our clients and employees and enter into the new year with an unwavering commitment to their health, happiness, and safety. What sets APT apart from our competitors is our dedication to providing solutions for our customers, tailored to their specific needs. We intend to honor this for years to come, constantly learning and growing from our experiences.
The coming year offers new opportunities as we all adapt to our changing world. While the holidays may look different for many this year, it is more important than ever to take a moment to be thankful for what we have. So from our family to yours, happy holidays. Stay safe and stay healthy.
The APT Family
