I'm thankful for an uninterrupted week with my family, no travel, and the fact that the good people at Whole Foods will be doing all the cooking.

Chip Castille

I'm thankful for family, friends, colleagues and clients.  I'm thankful I live in interesting times and that I enjoy my work tremendously.

"Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, but the realization of what you already have". I have a wonderful and supportive family, a terrific place to work and amazing co-workers. I am thankful for them and very content! Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers!

Dodd Kittsley

I am truly thankful for my colleagues, who set a great example of teamwork and for sure One BlackRock.

Nelli Oster

I'm thankful for a year rich with experiences from zip-lining a Costa Rican rainforest to launching a behavioral finance series on the BlackRock Blog - where my thanks specifically go to all the fantastic people I've had a chance to collaborate and share the fun with!

Between work and getting my MBA , I've been a little overwhelmed lately. So I'm thankful for coffee… and my husband. Besides doing all of our laundry this year, he makes me laugh and keeps me sane. I couldn't have gotten through the last year - or even yesterday! - without him.

Sue Thompson

I am thankful to work with wonderful colleagues and clients and having seen an advance copy of the 2014 RIA Desk Reference. I'm very thankful for that as well!!

Matt Tucker

I am thankful to welcome Alessandra into my family.  I am also thankful to learn that having 4 kids is crazy fun, but not overwhelmingly crazy.
