A New Year and a New Beginning

A new beginning can bring optimism and hope and propel us into a new season energized with a positive perspective and renewed resolve. As we transition to the new year, I hope our reflection about the events and experiences of 2023 will shape expectations for 2024.

As this year ends, I am truly grateful for the many blessings experienced, the challenges overcome, the lessons learned, and time well spent with family, friends, and the QIC family. Considering just how much our success depends upon each other, I want to express my appreciation to those who made 2023 memorable and worthwhile.

The QIC Team – thank you for serving each other and our clients with professionalism and respect. Your character and commitment to excellence are second to none.

Our clients – thank you for trusting us with your business and allowing us to serve you and participate in your success.

Our families – thank you for your unwavering support as we do what we do every day.

A New Beginning and Positive Perspective

As you reflect on 2023, be balanced in your assessment by not focusing exclusively on unachieved goals or unfulfilled resolutions. Remember, too, that there are lessons learned in goals not achieved – so be fair with yourself! This means you must regularly assess and, as life happens, adjust as you go.

A New Beginning and Renewed Resolve

A new beginning gives us the opportunity to start afresh. Just don’t go crazy – set reasonable, obtainable goals – limited to a few things instead of eight or ten. And add something fun or personal. Is there something you’ve always wanted to try or learn? Maybe learn to play a musical instrument, take an art class, or learn a new language? How about continuing education?

2024 will be full of new challenges, experiences, and lessons. With a positive perspective and renewed resolve – let’s make it the best ever!

On behalf of the entire QIC family, we wish you a healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year!

Perhaps you have heard the adage, “Nothing Happens Until Somebody Sells Something.”  It has been attributed to several people, such as Arthur “Red” Motley, Peter Drucker, Thomas Watson (IBM), and Henry Ford.  Regardless of the source, it has been a clarion call of sorts for salespersons through the years – just trying to “make something… Read more »

2020 – Roller Coaster Ride

I recall as a young child learning that a new, enormous roller coaster – the “Great American Scream Machine” – was in operation at Six Flags over Georgia, just west of Atlanta. The Scream Machine (still in operation) is a wooden coaster which, at the time, was the tallest, longest, and fastest in the world.… Read more »

COVID-19 Update

A few weeks ago, we posted about QIC’s preparedness measures in response to the spread of COVID-19. Since that time much has changed, and the spread of the Coronavirus continues to impact our daily lives personally and professionally. Many of us have friends, family, or acquaintances that have been quarantined with the virus or await… Read more »
