A Quick Yiddish Lesson

Ian Lurie

Kvelling, in Yiddish, means ‘gloating’, ‘full of pride’ or the state of being delighted about something.

I’m kvelling for a moment: My company was chosen as one of the 100 fastest-growing companies in Puget Sound. Number 48, to be exact.

That growth is a testament to my clients, who have worked with us for years and been great partners, as well as the Portent team, who manage to stay creative, smart and efficient, all at the same time.

Thanks everyone!
