ML Internal Team Highlights from 2021!!

M / L

What a year!!! 2021 you were quite an adventure and here on the Lane, we couldn’t be more grateful for each of our faithful clients, passionate Laners, and supportive families!! Thank you for a beautiful year! Mustard Lane staffed 630 Activations with 81 Clients creating a total of 12,208 shifts! Our internal team members are taking a moment to highlight something from the Lane in 2021 that stands out to them. While there are too many wonderful moments to highlight, it’s easy to see that our internal team is so grateful for the relationships we’ve built with each other and with YOU! We wish you all a very happy and healthy 2022!!

“My highlight was seeing and feeling the event world come back to life was the best part of 2021. I am so lucky to be able to work alongside the internal team we have at ML and for our Laners that are out in the trenches with their Mustard Hearts. I am ending this year with a grateful, thankful and full heart.”

“My favorite part of getting to work on the Lane in 2021 was getting to be a part of the resurgence of the events industry. I had the My favorite highlight of 2021 was that through it all… we did it! We made a very hard year happen, staffed amazing events, hosted beautiful parties at Meaux Space and created amazing memories!”

“Don’t stress over the little stuff, don’t forget to connect with family and friends and LIVE IT UP!” – Jillian Schiralli

“Toward the end of 2021 I had the privilege of working onsite and managing a team of about 15 Laners for the NYC Marathon Event. For me, working onsite and being a part of the team is always a true highlight. I have also been doing this event every year since I first joined ML, so it’s always great to see what fun new thing TCS brings to their booth and what familiar faces I will get to work with!”

Note to future self:

“Hey future Deven. This is past Deven. I guarantee wherever you are right now it is so much more appealing and exciting than where past Deven was at the time of typing this. Anything good to watch on TV in the future? Heard good things about Yellowstone, but my parents watch that, so how good can it really be? Do I owe anything in taxes this year? That’d be good to know now. Is Crypto currency still a thing? Did you get a new roomie? Still the opposite of the TV show ‘Friends’ I assume… Are most people generally still being dumb or is there hope?” – Deven Anderson

“My favorite part of getting to work on the Lane in 2021 was getting to be a part of the resurgence of the events industry. I had the privilege of joining and being a part of a team that provided work opportunities for hundreds of staff across the US (and a few in Canada), many of whom had been largely unemployed for the better part of a year. After a year of fear, loss, uncertainty, mass unemployment, and a whole lot of other not so great things for so many of us, it meant so much to me to be a part of the ML internal team as we made a major, masked comeback in the industry.”

Note to my future self:

“Don’t underestimate how much can change in a year, two years, etc. If you find yourself in a moment that’s tough, remember that life is ever-changing and you are ever-evolving!” – Susie Gannon

“My favorite highlight of working on the Lane in 2021 was just seeing it thriving, growing, and back in action! And I’m so proud of the core team and all of our laners for their hard work and dedication.” 

Note to my future self:

“Remember to practice flexibility in all things. Schedule, work, availability, plans, they can all change. But the constant is how you creatively approach challenges with patience and imagination.” – Kelly Klein

“Working on the Lane allows me the gift of working with people I love and respect…even when I’m across the country from them! I love being a part of such a passionate group and thrilled with all the growth the Lane has had over the last year!”
