I’ve never met him
Whenever you start in a new role you meet so many great people and they tell you about great people you have to get to know. I’ve seen Blake in all the stores I’ve worked in but never had the guts to actually speak to him. My team has told me how amazing he is, how approachable he was and I still was anxious about it. What a great leader to have left such a great impression on not only management but sales associates as well. Definitely to this day one of my biggest regrets was not introducing myself to him and telling him my story/what I stood for. My condolences to his family, friends and everyone who was fortunate to know him.
