TBJ 40 Under 40 Awards 2017

Today Blake and I had the privilege of attending the TJB 40 Under 40 Awards for the Class of 2017  #40U40Awards


Our close friend, Travis Wright Colopy, was one of the honorees this year and his nonprofit company, Fit & Able Productions hosted a table and invited Blake & I to join them to celebrate!   The awards luncheon was held at the Marriott City Center in downtown Raleigh.

Travis & Anna

It was so much fun to be there to celebrate with Travis & his family, including his girlfriend, Anna Garner, plus his mom & dad, grandparents from Ohio and brother, Glen, who came from Germany!  Each recipient was called to the stage to receive their award and had approximately 1-minute for a thank you speech.

Congrats to the winners!

They shared their “Personal Hashtag# with the crowd and told why it was meaningful to them.   They also had selected a song that would be played when their name was called as they walked to the stage.   I enjoyed hearing all of the fun songs and learning more about each winner through the explanations of their personal hashtags.

Travis in the TBJ

Travis said his personal hashtag was #wedontsayno and his song was Kryptonite by the band 3-Doors Down.  The publication of the Triangle Business Journal that came out today has all 40 recipients listed and goes into greater detail about the reasons they were selected.

Smith & Smith, CPA client in the TBJ

It was nice to see one of our clients from Smith & Smith, CPA listed as a winner, Matthew Leerberg of Smith Moore Leatherwood.
