The CAM-X 48th Annual Trade Show and Convention

Wow - thank you team! Can't say enough about how proud I am!!

On Friday October 19th, as the awards ceremony unfolded at the CAM-X 48th Annual Trade Show and Convention in Victoria, I had many thoughts running through my mind.  We’ve won the Award of Excellence (AOE) for 11 straight years; will we do it again?  We’ve won the Award of Distinction (AOD) for 10 out of the last 12 years; will we do it again?  We usually rate the calls ourselves and have a reasonable idea.  But, this year, we knew we had one very bad call and could find records for only five more; we had 4 wild cards.  We wondered why agents did not tell us they’d received another CAM-X call…was no news good news, or bad news?

Lil Lyle and Linda Osip did the order of presentation differently this year and the longer they went without calling our name the more I trembled in my seat.

Our history is 14 years in the AOE program with 12 consecutive wins.  Eleven years in the AOD with 10 wins, the last 9 consecutive. In 1999, three years after purchasing Valley Communications, we entered our first AOE.  The AOE is an industry-benchmarking program that began 23 years ago. One Member Company, @liveconx has 23 consecutive awards!  Unfortunately, we did not achieve the required 80% in 1999 or 2000.  In 2001, we entered both the AOE and AOD. With encouragement and coaching from Lil Lyle, continual educational opportunities and sheer determination, we won both awards! In 2002 we won AOE only. In 2003 we focused our energy on AOE only and brought home the award. In 2004 after winning the AOD, Intercon Messaging was awarded a huge contract due to the awards we have won through CAM-X!

I am very privileged and pleased with the dedication, commitment and education of our people, which is vital in achieving the score necessary to win these esteemed industry awards. 

I am extremely grateful to my people for their hard work, their commitment to education, their persistence and all that they do, all day every day, to provide an outstanding level of service to our clients and their callers.

Thank you to each and every person who works for Intercon Messaging.

Life, Intercon Messaging and Yoga!

Life, Intercon Messaging and Yoga . . . what do these three have in common? 

FLEXIBILITY!  

 Being flexible both physically and mentally I believe is very important in life.  It is a talent or skill that is an anti-stresser.  Being flexible is defined as capable of being bent and/or susceptible of modification or adaption.  Think of how this applys to day to day life.  What is the first thing we do in the morning, perhaps after the snooze button.  We get out of bed.  Imagine the task of getting out of bed if your legs were straight and did not bend.  If you have ever worn a cast you come to appreciate life after the cast and the joys of having that flexibility.

This similar idea can be applied to life.  When things happen that are not as planned we can stiffen up and resent what is happening.  Or we can be flexible knowing it is our best interest and there is a lesson wrapped in every situation.  Which is easier?

My personal life lends itself to being flexible in multiple ways.  I am very fortunate to have a flexible job where I work from a remote location.  I am also fortunate to have a great set of co-workers that allow my schedule to be flexible so I can follow other dreams.  I am work to be physically flexible to trick ride and to hula hoop.  I start each day with intentions and when plans are not going as I have planned, I trust that their is a reason for this and that what is meant to be will be.  Usually everything works out, but in a different way then my mind had planned it to.  Thus I have found flexibility very important.   

Intercon Messaging is happy to offer this to all of our clients.  Though we do not offer yoga for our clients . . . yet, by using our service it allows one to gain more flexiblity within their lives.  The options of leaving the office for the afternoon, working on the road or taking a vacation become more appealing with the peace of mind that your business will be waiting when you return or relayed to you as desired.

 How can your life become more flexible . . . well here are a few suggestions I have . . . 

  1. Be greatful for the way things are going, whether they are good or bad by your opinion they are for your best interest.  If they weren’t they would not occur.  Some of the best gifts are “wrapped in sand paper”.
  2. Do Yoga, hoop or stretch . . . something physical to keep those muscles moving!
  3. Create flexibility with in your workplace . . . use Intercon Messaging!

After all life is about creating and enjoying, and is best done with a smile on our face.  So lets get flexible!!
