Jeff Hilimire

Every year, Dragon Army takes a company cruise. We usually go on a 4-night cruise out of either Orlando or Miami, so it’s an easy drive or short flight for our team members. We also pay for everyone to bring a guest on the cruise. And of course the time we’re all away doesn’t count against vacation time (though that’s a moot point because Dragon Army has an unlimited vacation policy.). Why a company cruise?

But now, I think about it differently. I view “luck” as your ability to take advantage of the good things that come your way. Everyone has good and bad things come their way.
