This month, we caught up with Consultant, Jacob Watson, to learn more about what he does at NEOS and the best advice he has ever received.

Tell me a little bit about what you do for NEOS and our clients.

I like to say that my job at NEOS is to exceed the goals and expectations of the clients we are partnered with. This is because the specific role that I play can vary depending on client need, even from one day to the next. 

What is the one thing you couldn’t live without?

I would have to say family. Among all of the uncertainty that this year has brought, it has been amazing to have such a solid support system to fall back on. My wife and I are also expecting a new addition to our growing family and couldn’t be more excited to welcome her. 

What is the best advice that you have ever received?

One piece of advice that really stuck with me was that “no one has ever said they regret spending too much time with friends or family.” For me it is a good reminder to never pass up an invitation. 

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives and why?

Although I would suggest doing this more than just once, I think everyone should look to give back to their community. Beyond helping those around you, volunteering can also get you outside of your comfort zone and experiencing new people, cultures, and ideas. 

If you could choose one word to describe the culture at NEOS, what would it be and why?

It is impossible to describe the NEOS culture in just one word, but the first word that comes to mind is synergy. The idea of “the whole being greater than the sum of its parts” defines both the collaboration within NEOS and our relationship with our clients.
