Seven-Year Cycles

Seven-Year Cycles

I had a conversation recently about “seven-year business cycles”, and while macroeconomics is not my jam :o) it got me thinking about whether or not every seven years in one’s personal life could be looked at similarly. It is an interesting scenario to contemplate....

Acrostic

Acrostic

I learned a new word today, thanks to my brother. :o) I wasn’t sure how to do a Google search for my question, so I sent him something I’d written whilst in the throes of 2020 and asked, “is there a 'name' for this type of writing, when you use the first letter for a...

Relax and Restore

Relax and Restore

Does anyone feel as though they need a vacation after a very busy July? :o) I personally consider July to be the best month of the year, as it is filled with many celebratory days: Cadre’s anniversary, my birthday, my wedding anniversary and several family reunions,...

Half My Life at Cadre

Half My Life at Cadre

Today represents a personal milestone:  I have officially spent half of my life at Cadre! Even though it is hard for me to believe, it is true.  Cadre has been a part of my life for half of my life.  We opened our doors in 1994, when I was 27! Cadre (then known as...

Embrace Life’s Commercials

Embrace Life’s Commercials

Most of you know by now that I am a huge Marvel / superhero nerd. :o) My husband and I recently decided to re-watch Deadpool. Early in the movie, the title character says the following: Life is an endless series of train wrecks with only brief, commercial-like breaks...

The Premier Philosophy

The Premier Philosophy

When I wrote our last blog, “Delight the Customer”, I typed the words “never lie” and it jogged my memory; I remembered similar words on a document we used to include in our sales folders when we opened our doors as Premier Staffing in 1994. The lessons are as...

Delight the Customer

Delight the Customer

I recently saw the phrase “Delight the Customer”, and I thought it would make a great blog topic. I couldn’t wait to dive into some reading on the subject and I had all these great ideas and thoughts I wanted to write about! ? That all changed after a recent...

Candy

Candy

As the Easter Bunny comes in just a few days, isn’t the kid in each of us thinking about candy? ? What comes to mind when you hear the name “Hershey”? Chocolate bars? Reese’s? KitKat? (Did you know Hershey is responsible for over 90 different candy products?) I...

Because it Bears Repeating

Because it Bears Repeating

On 3/23/21, we published a poem my dad wrote 25 years ago. Blink of an eye, another year is behind us and a favorite season is upon us; it bears repeating his spring poem: We rejoice – winter has waned and spring at last is near.   The cold winds, with their...

30-Second Throwback Thursday

30-Second Throwback Thursday

Join me in a trip down memory lane … Cadre was coming up on its 10th anniversary, and in February 2004, (almost 18 years ago and before our Madison office was conceived), Team Cadre filmed a promotional video for a string of local television ads. :o) The intent of the...
