Our next interviewee for this series is with Director of Finance and HR, Teresa Stonelake. Teresa makes it rain here at Balance Interactive and has been with the team for over 2 years. She is an avid hiker and keeps us all on task and budget when it comes to money being spent. She always has a smile and a warm greeting when you speak to her!
- What’s on your desk right now?
Pictures of my kids. Photos my daughter has taken. Pens, Markers and more pens, the more colors the better! Oh and far to many sticky notes!
- What's the best advice you ever got?
Hmmm thats a hard one, but my favorite quote is "whether you believe you can or believe you can't.....in either case your right". It's all about how you think about the situation you can be defeated or inspired, I try to always be inspired.
- What do you do when you're not at work?
Some of the things I like to do when I am not at work are to explore, whether it is a new city, a new trail to hike, a new golf course to play, or a new book to read. I love going to historic buildings/sites and to think about the people who walked here so many years before and what their lives must have been like.
- Describe something you did at work that you are most proud of?
The part of my job that I really enjoy: Keeping in mind that the money that comes into the company is our clients money, ensuring we are always working with that in mind, our clients do great things I want to ensure we always remember to respect that and provide the best quality work in an efficient manor as possible.
- How do you think Balance Interactive stands out from the crowd?
What makes Balance stand out from the crowd, we put ourselves in our clients shoes, really get to know their goals and objectives and bring them every tool possible to reach those goals.
