I typically hate starting with “To Whom It May Concern”, but when I don’t know who I’m writing and the person is asking for a general letter of recommendation from me, I work with what I got. And when writing a letter of recommendation, it’s those only salutation aptly appropriate.
To Whom It May Concern:
Over the past eight years I have had the pleasure of knowing Nicholas —- in both a
collegiate and professional setting. I have been his classmate and his co-founder. I have
worked alongside him, I have worked for him and I have worked in opposition to him. All of
which has afforded me an insight to how Nicholas works, builds and conceptualizes.
Nicholas has always been an advocate collaborative efforts never shying away from taking the
leadership role. Nicholas takes great pride in perfection, even scrutinizing a process more
carefully and taking more time. There is something about having his name associated with a
project that fuels him to the overall project a reflection of the best f himself. Nicholas is about
contributing more than what’s expected of him and strives to raised that standard each time.
While establishing BestBuds, which would later be aptly name America’s Best Farms, Nicholas
had a vision of taking the current urban lifestyle during the 2008 economic toil and pairing with
the idealism of local nutrition via community gardens. His goal for the organization was to help
those that would be suffering most financially have access to organic foods to aid in the
prevention of illnesses that can be staved off through proper nutrition. And Nicholas hit the
ground running. He made contacts with local government officials, interested investors, and
the general public through networking and social media marketing.
Any organization looking to include Nicholas —– among their fold, will find more than a
member simply looking to blend in. They will someone who has no qualms about taking the
role of leader, continually producing more and connecting with like-minded and proactive
individuals. They will find that Nicholas is someone who has high standards and aims to deliver
on them every time.
