A Thanksgiving Report Full of, What Else, Thanks
Like most of you, friends and family will surround the Sachs Report family this Thanksgiving. My wife will be in the kitchen for what seems like a month of prep work. Then there is the look on her face at some point later in the day that says, “I took a month to prepare this meal and you all ate it in 20 minutes!” The look only gets worse if the Dallas Cowboys have lost.
And as more Thanksgivings pass, and you age, you realize that you have indeed become your father. And for my father, who so much enjoyed this annual gathering of the tribe, I often wondered if that little smile on his face was more about the gathering or over the fact he knew all the hidden stories that went with each of the faces.
This will be the first Thanksgiving in 30 years that I will not celebrate as a member of the Pioneer Electronics family and that makes me feel sad. It does, however, also bring the joy and pride of many fond memories. This Thanksgiving brings opportunity that allows me expression and freedom. At this Thanksgiving I find freedom to do what I enjoy and to find ways to try and be of service to the industry I love and where I spent so much of my time. It does make me sad to think of all the dealers that supported the way we went to market and how that has now been abandoned.
