We Don’t Get Anywhere Alone
For anyone that has owned a business or managed the hiring process, you know how challenging and yet rewarding it can be. Through all of our technology, designs, and efficiencies, we are still the human race. True meaningful work and relationships occur with great people. Adding someone new to your team is more than simply can they do the job, but do they understand our culture? Better yet can they enhance the culture with their own strengths?
At Streamline, we recently added a new team member. She was patient through many interviews, many questions, some of them the same just rephrased in various ways. I asked her for a favorite quote and she stated the following:
“You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.”
-Charlie “Tremendous” Jones
She followed this quote by saying, “I truly believe that no one will ever get anywhere entirely on their own.”

Lauren Jones: Q&A
Where are you from? I’m from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
What brought you to Nashville?My husband is a musician. Pennsylvania doesn’t offer as many opportunities in the music industry. Our end game was always to end up in Nashville, Tennessee.
What drew you to Streamline Event Agency? I was drawn to Streamline Event Agency because of their dedication to their clients, their sense of community, and their passion for and commitment to unique and exceptional work.
Tell us about your role and why clients will love you. As Project Manager at Streamline Event Agency, I’m all about the details. I work with our clients to establish open communication, to clarify expectations, and to manage logistics to ensure every project is well organized for flawless execution.
What is one thing that would surprise us about you? Something that might surprise you about me is that I’m afraid of fish. It took me a long time to get comfortable swimming in lakes. I still have issues swimming in the ocean.
Who is the most important person in your life? I hate to be that person, but I really can’t choose just one. My parents as a unit are the most important to me. My parents taught me to be genuine, offer kindness, show respect, share love, and aspire to greatness by living their lives as an example.
As you begin with a new team, what are you most excited about? I’m excited to be challenged in new ways and to learn from the experience and expertise of my coworkers. I look forward to using my skills and passions to contribute to the collaborative efforts of the team.
On a rainy afternoon you are inclined to do what? On a rainy afternoon, you can find me reading a book, writing a post for my lifestyle blog, or binge-watching Netflix. It really depends on my mood.
On a sunny afternoon you are inclined to do what? My husband and I love to spend time a Percy Priest lake, soaking in the sun. We also enjoy checking out local wineries and breweries. We try to take advantage of any opportunity to enjoy time out together.
