Every year, Medtronic has a company-wide holiday celebration with food, music, and a program where people that have used our products come and speak to remind us why we do what we do.
I was a very last-minute addition to the orchestra, but I'm glad I could be there to round out the orchestra! The Hallelujah Chorus just isn't the same without a French horn player.
With 9000 employees in the Twin Cities, about 3000 were on the main campus for the day's program. It was such a cool event, to hear from patients that use our diabetes pumps, our clot removal therapies, our laser scalpels. Chances are, you know someone who has used at Medtronic product at some point in their life, and knowing that makes you want to work a little bit harder.
It's a new world, everyone: you can buy a boxspring on amazon and a mattress that comes in the mail in a giant tube!
Presto chango, it's a box spring!
Magic. My parents were skeptical, but the fact that there is A, a 100 day guarantee, B, personal pickup and no-questions-asked return policy, C, they donate the used mattress to a shelter, and D, it's made in the USA---well, all of these made this a no brainer. My first mattress that I bought wasn't a great experience, and this would be $150 more for trying something new. Absolutely worth it.
