  • @Regrann from @houndsgrin (one of our setters and a wonderful human being) - I've always been passionate about work, and my tendency is to find employment that is equal parts stressful and fulfilling.  My current job with @secondgearwnc is the least stressful I've had at any point in my life.  Case in point, I recently got to take our staff to @climbmaxnc to take pictures of some climbing shoes.  A few days later I got to represent the company at @rumbleclimbingcomp and spend a beautiful day bouldering with great people.  Safe to say I feel pretty fortunate to be doing what I'm doing. #passion #climbing #bouldering
