Mother's Day Top 10? Nah - let's do 12!

By Adrian Cavlan

Mother’s Day arrives next week and, as always, it is a time to be grateful for our moms and all they do for us (as if carrying us around for nine months and bringing us into this world in a… er… “less than comfortable” way weren’t enough!).

I have two incredible moms in my life: my mother Nancy and my wife Shawn (we have three wonderful kids!).

Amazingly, both of them have worked or are working here at Sound In Motion. Shawn, of course, is one of our rock star sales and event planning consultants (not to mention a very in-demand wedding day makeup artist), and Nancy was our bookkeeper and contract manager for many years. In fact, as the former contract manager and negotiator for Yahoo! back in the day, she still lends a hand when corporate lawyers get involved with our events (whew - thanks Mom!).

Here’s me with my Mom…
