Happy Boss!


By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day.
–Robert Frost

National Boss’s Day began in 1958 when Patricia Bays Haroski, then an employee at State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Ill., registered the holiday.  (And who was HER boss?  Her dad!)

“Reflecting on how my father had helped his white-collar daughters and sons many times with their problems concerning their work, I decided to register his birthday, October 16, as ‘The Day.'” Ms. Haroski hoped to improve the relationship between employees and supervisors.

At Seeds of Happiness we are lucky to have a terrific boss.  Mark Borella, “The Seeds of Happiness Guy”, is our friend, mentor, cheerleader, and also a REALLY good cook!   This one’s for you, Boss!  Share the Love, Share the Smiles!


Nothing is as embarrassing as watching your boss do something you assured him couldn’t be done.

–Earl Wilson
