What do you love about your job? Mary Beth_TBI-National-Channel-Manager

I love that every day brings something different – a new opportunity where we need to design a solution or solve a new business problem. Also, I enjoy constantly finding ways to add value to my partners! The fact that it is ever-changing keeps me interested and challenged.

What do you like about working at TBI?

Lots of things! The people, the culture, the evolution from how small we were when I started to over 200 employees today. We are large enough to have specialists and support in each category, yet still manageable . We have a culture that embraces strengths,  offers the tools necessary to enable growth , provide education and resources.  I love that my voice is heard and changes can actually be made based on employee feedback.

What is a key tidbit you give to others? 

As I have told my kids as long as they could understand - live by the golden rule and you cannot go wrong - “treat others the way you would like to be treated.”  The world could use more kindness.

Favorite vacation/getaway destination? 

I haven’t been too many places outside the US- I have a long bucket list however. I love going to Cabo with my family every summer and spending time in Canada as a kid . I really enjoyed Costa Rica with TBI and my daughter! 

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

A couple - I would like to read people’s minds and fly so I could get places much faster. I love traveling but I am very impatient on how long it takes to get places!
