May 20, 2013

Auburn Hills, Mich. – Last Saturday, thousands of people came out for the 21st annual Susan G. Komen Detroit Race for the Cure in downtown Detroit. . A number of Reliance One employees and their families participated in the 22nd annual race. “The weather was beautiful and it was great to see such an amazing turn out. This is such a great cause and we are glad that we can contribute towards the research and the cure of breast cancer.” Says, Chad Toms, National Sales Manager at Reliance One.

About Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®

Susan G. Komen, who is the global leader of the breast cancer movement, is an inspiration who fought breast cancer with everything she had. Throughout her diagnosis, she spent her time coming up with ways to make life better for other women fighting breast cancer instead of worrying about her condition. Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer forever.

That ‘promise’ is now known as the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, which has invested more than $1.9 billion since its start in 1982. They work together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and motivate scientists to find the cures needed. Thanks to events, such as the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and generous contributions from sponsors and fellow supporters, they have become the largest source of nonprofit funds devoted to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

Be an Optimist

Have you ever had one of those moments, the kind that leave you forever changed?

You’ve heard it said before, people come into our lives for a reason. The article below details one of those scarce instances. One gloomy morning, after coming in contact with a grumpy newspaper salesman, a businessman kept a positive attitude and wished him well. A complete stranger who was also in line for this morning paper stood stunned and questioned why the man was so pleasant to someone who obviously didn’t care; the answer he received changed his entire thought process. “Why would I let someone else control what I say and what I feel or what kind of day I’m going to have?”

The moral of the story goes back to our previous blog topic, Control What You Can Control. Reliance One’s Senior Account Executive, Rob Wicker encouraged job seekers not to dwell on things outside of their control but to do the best at managing what they could. When it comes to job hunting you want to make sure you represent yourself to the best of your ability and prepare for every opportunity that comes your way.

Design Your Own Future

“Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises”, this quote shaped the theme of Avondale graduate, Marisa Aiello’s college scholarship essay. Marisa talked about her ambitions to open up an Italian restaurant and feature her grandfather’s recipe for homemade bread; Marisa’s entrepreneur spirit gave her leverage over other candidates and helped her land the $1,000 scholarship. On Tuesday, December 18, 2012 she met with Reliance One President, James Paquette as he presented her with her check.

Reliance One partnered with Avondale School district to create the Avondale Education Foundation and make this scholarship possible. Dr. George Heitsch expressed his appreciation, “The community as a whole benefits when companies like Reliance One get engaged in the education of K-12 students. We applaud Reliance One for supporting the Avondale School District through the Avondale Foundation and congratulate Marisa on receiving the scholarship,” said Dr. Heitsch. In order to be eligible for the scholarship the student must reside in the Avondale School District, have at least a 3.0 GPA and plan to pursue a business degree, preferably with a focus in entrepreneurism, at an accredited college, university or other higher education institution.

After graduation she plans on making her restaurant dreams a reality, like the quote used in her essay Marisa will take every opportunity to make her goals come to life.
