Last Week TeamBonding Celebrated Giving Tuesday in a Big Way! David and Wendy Goldstein, the owners of TeamBonding, decided to encourage donations by matching every staff member’s individual donation. As a result of David and Wendy’s generosity, and the generosity of our incredible team, we were able to raise $2,000 for a variety of charities.

I’m Michael Carroll – business enthusiast, student and currently TeamBonding marketing and sales intern. This fall as part of my internship I will be focusing on increasing SEO traffic and analyzing sales processes. In my posts, I’m going to be sharing some of my young, but wise expertise and bringing you behind the scenes.
