@jmcade01 (Joanne), has asked me to make this announcement. I am pasting her email to the OALs.

I have been giving this a lot of thought over the past few months and I am sad to say that I feel the need to step away from the challenges.
My evenings and weekends have been filled with both work and family obligations and I just don’t feel I am giving my team and the challenge the attention they should get.
I wanted to give you time to locate someone else.
I will miss the challenges and hope to be back on a team in the future. I am available for any questions going forward if you need me.
Thanks for all of the support and friendship.

Joanne and I have worked closely together for 11 years on this challenge. She will be missed! Please do send her your best wishes!

    @jmcade01 I am sorry to see you leave, but I know how hard it is to balance the challenges with work and family. I was a WL several times on the SP 5% challenges, and I enjoyed working with you. I wish you the best and hope to see you again at some point. -Leslie

    @jmcade01 ,, Dearest Joanne, I am so sorry to see you go, but totally understand it. Indeed we do need to put family first. Work life no doubt is so very different than it was before COVID. I can't even begin to imagine (Well I was working retail, but an office job YO!) I wish you the very best Joanne!! You know we'll always have a seat here for you. It's on permanent reserve "just in case." Hugs hon!

    @jmcade01 ~ Wishing you the best as you made this decision. You WILL absolutely be missed. I agree with @Dianedoessmiles1 ~ you know there will ALWAYS be a seat here for you, either as a community member, leader ~ or back to an Overall Leader. We'll miss you and we'll probably survive without you but it will be an emptier Overall Leader's 'compliment' without you! Best, BEST wishes!! ~ Heidi (hicim705)

    Joanne. You will be sorely missed. I have enjoyed working with you (from the Determined Daisies) to being on the Tenacious GR8ters on MFP. You are very efficient and personally, I do understand your needing your time at this point. Hopefully, the OALs can find someone just as efficient as you. Hugs. Lise

    You will be missed, but you are doing the best thing for you and your family. Life is not all about the 5% Challenges. Kudos.
