This month's Fthisplace Story features @nickgato , we met at work 6 years ago and I can vouch that he is the most intelligent human that I have had the pleasure of working closely with. Nick's expertise in global corporate finance is overshadowed by his talent to manage and lead. Anyone who has seen him present knows the power of his presence. Not to mention that he can conduct business fluently in 4 different languages! However, Nick was not valued appropriately for the effort he poured into his job and combined with bad news from an application into MIT, he was at a crossroads. Five years ago, he left his job for a new company which gave him a renewed spirit and confidence and empowered him to use his full potential! Today, Nick is graduating with his Executive MBA from MIT! Congratulations Nick!
I hope stories like these can motivate people to be in a work enviornment that values them and that sometimes "no" doesn't mean "no" forever!
