Inspirational Quotes from Our Sales Manager

Managing any group has its high and low points.  I am lucky in that I work with a positive and team oriented group at Maxons.  When my team does need a pick me up I often say  the following two quotes.

Respect your fellow human being, treat them fairly, disagree with them honestly, enjoy their friendship, explore your thoughts about one another candidly, work together for a common goal and help one another achieve it.  ~Bill Bradley

 Life is not about waiting or the storm to pass, it’s about learning how do dance in the rain. ~Anonymous

These two passages remind us to stay connected with one another and that we can weather any challenge if we adapt to it.

Keep up the good work folks!

Seeing our Network Partners in Action!

Recently our Director of HR Kelley, had the opportunity to work with ARS in New Hampshire as her mother Cecile, had a bat infestation in her eaves there.  ARS did a wonderful job of keeping both Kelley and Cecile up to date on progress and discoveries in the project as they happened.  Tom, the Project Manager, was very patient and prompted Cecile to say the following to Kelley:

“He was absolutely a sweetheart. He told me that they would take care of everything and I was not to worry.  He explained what they were going to do and I’m feeling better already.”

We tell our Project Managers here to treat every customer like they are your mom.  Cecile’s glowing praise made it clear that  Tom, Katie and the rest of the gang at ARS certainly did that!

A big thank you from the Maxons extended family to ARS!

As temperatures rise, so should safety awareness.

Summer is full of fun out door activities, such as the beach, boating, private and public pools. Going for a swim is one of the most popular activities to take part in during these north east summer months.

It is important to follow safety rules and regulation at all times and all ages. A child under five and adolescents between the ages of 15-24 have the highest drowning rates. Swimming pools are known to be 14 times more likely than a motor vehicle to be involved in the death of a child four and under. Most accidents happen at bbq’s, parties, public pools and beaches. This occurs when one adult thinks another adult is watching and that same adult thinks you are watching. Always keep an eye on your loved ones don’t depend on someone else to do it for you. For those of you that own pools and leave your children with a sitter  or nanny make sure they are strong swimmers. Six deaths on Long Island alone in the last two years were a direct result of non swimming nannies.

Fact: 20% of all drowning occur with a certified life guard present.

Fact: 9 people drown a day in the united states on average.

Always take precaution and have a fun and safe summer.

CPR and First Aid Training with the American Red Cross

On Saturday a group of Maxons employees took advantage of a CPR and First Aid class being sponsored by Maxons through the Red Cross!

It was hugely informative as well as great fun!  Thank you to everyone who was able to participate and make it a great learning day for us!

Some of the group “saving” their CPR learning partners!


Poor Jeff, he had a bad open wound and then in trying to fix that, his arm broke! At least it was perfect timing for us to learn how to wrap bandages and make slings! And he smiled the whole time!
