Intelisys Green Team Raised Over $2k for Human Race & BBQ

 

Have you heard of the Intelisys Green Team? We are a group of Intelisys employees who work hard to make a difference in our local community.  We participate in projects to educate our colleagues on the importance of being environmentally friendly while having fun at the same time!

One of our latest endeavors was a fundraiser for the Human Race & BBQ in May. Our goal was to raise $1500, but thanks to all the generous donations, we raised $2170.37!!! This was the second highest amount raised, so great job everyone!

Below are some pictures we took at the event:

Thoughts on New Year’s Resolutions for Telecom Sales Agents

promises that telecom agents make in the new years

Approaching the end of one year and the beginning of the next, it’s common for us to think about our New Year’s resolutions or goals. We often have a renewed sense of energy and purpose with the beginning of something new, and that energy is easily channeled into our goal setting.

According to About.com, the top four New Year’s resolutions are:

  1. Increase exercise
  2. Be more conscientious about work or school
  3. Develop better eating habits
  4. Stop smoking, drinking, or using drugs (including caffeine)

What’s interesting about this list is it focuses almost entirely on our physical selves with no mention of our “other” selves: mental, emotional, or spiritual. The goals in this list don’t involve your heart or passion – but rather seem quite restrictive and well, boring.

Perhaps that’s why resolutions have a 97% failure rate after 30 days. So perhaps it’s time for a new approach to goal-setting.  The late Steve Jobs once said,  “We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life.”

With that in mind, we encourage you to consider carefully your goals for 2012. Yes, the practical goals have their place too, but why not make 2012 a year for taking risks, expanding outside of your comfort zone, and doing what makes you feel the most alive?

As for us at Intelisys, our passion is and will continue to be providing the world’s best support for the world’s best Partners – YOU! Thank you for continuing to provide us the opportunity to do so.

Whatever your goals for 2012, here’s to wishing you health, happiness and success. Happy New Year!

P.S. We’d love to hear about the goals you’re setting. Please share with us on our blog (we can insert a link here).

 

 

Telecom Sales Agents: Do you have “Unfinished Business”?

An old proverb says, “Every end is a new beginning.”  As 2011 draws to a close, it’s a great time to reflect on the last 12 months and take care of any “unfinished business” you may have so you can enter 2012 with a clean slate and renewed energy.

What is unfinished business? It’s anything, business or personal, that nags at you or gets put on your “should do” list. On the business side, it could be that meeting with your accountant or those updates to your website. On the personal side, perhaps you still need to write those thank you cards or call your old college roommate.

Whatever it is, unfinished business slows us down and makes us less productive because it clutters our minds and can often produce worry, guilt or both. By taking care of these things by the end of the year, you will begin 2012 with a clear conscience and increased confidence, since accomplishing even the smallest of tasks is a great boost for the ego.

As a matter of unfinished business for Intelisys, we want to express to you yet again how much we appreciate you and your hard work. We are honored to serve you, and look forward to an amazing 2012 in partnership with you.

We wish you and your families a very Happy Holidays!
