Fire Inc. Atlanta Supports an Operation Smile Medical Mission in Guatemala

Fire Inc. Atlanta Supports an Operation Smile Medical Mission in Guatemala

Fire Inc. Atlanta believes in the importance of giving back and making a difference in the community. This year, Fire Inc. Atlanta held various charity events and helped raise funds to support an Operation Smile medical mission. Operation Smile is a not-for-profit medical service organization that provides cleft lip and palate repair surgeries to children worldwide. To date, Operation Smile has provided reconstructive surgery to more than 150,000 children and young adults in more than 50 countries.

Multiple business joined the effort to fund a medical mission in Guatemala. However, Fire Inc. Atlanta’s determination and constant support granted them the recognition of being one of the top fundraisers! The president of Fire Inc. Atlanta, Malcolm Elavia, had the privilege to go on this medical mission trip on behalf of his company. During the week-long mission, Malcolm helped coordinate screenings, interacted with the families, and assisted in the recovery process.

Malcolm Elavia shared his experience:

“Having the opportunity to go to Guatemala and see these life-changing surgeries take place was amazing. I loved getting to see first-hand the impact that our donations made on each of these patients and I am proud to be able to support such a great cause. Being able to presence these surgeries was sad but heartwarming at the same time. I really got attached to some of the kids and their families that I spent time with. The most impactful experience by far was the relationship I built with an 8 year old girl named Palisha and her family. Palisha was unfortunately not selected as a candidate for the surgery for this year, but still showed such a positive, thankful spirit to all of us who came down to help out with the mission trip. Before I left, she even gave me a framed picture of us as a gift. I’ll always remember her optimism and plan to stay in touch with her and her family in the future.”

Overall, 104 patients had the opportunity to receive the surgery. Now that Malcolm is back from the trip, he is more motivated than ever to be able to support this great cause. Over the next year, Malcolm plans to support Operation Smile by raising twice the amount his company donated in 2014.

The Fire Inc. Atlanta Team Enjoys Some R&R in the Bahamas!

From hard work comes great reward. This year, the Fire Inc. Atlanta management team had the opportunity to travel to the Bahamas. Throughout the entire year, the team worked hard to reach their goals. Their dedication, persistency, and commitment to success allowed the team to enjoy some R&R in this amazing place!

During their trip to the Bahamas, the Fire Inc. Atlanta team attended business meetings where they were able to pick the brains of other successful business owners and discussed best business practices. The team enjoyed this networking event with other business owners and allowed them to grow as business professionals.

Not only the Fire Inc. Atlanta team had the opportunity to participate in these business meetings, but they also relaxed at the beautiful Atlantis Paradise Island Resort. From enjoying a beautiful evening at the beach, to swimming with the dolphins, the team sure had an excellent time in the Bahamas. Malcolm Elavia, president of Fire Inc.Atlanta stated, “This was a chance to not only celebrate our victories by relaxing at the beach, but also a chance to re-energize the team to keep winning!”

The team shared, “We most enjoyed getting to spend time with each other while relaxing and enjoying some R&R. We really enjoyed the themed dinners, the amazing water parks, and gorgeous beaches!

Now that the team is back from their trip and they had a chance to re-charge their batteries, they are all ready to finish the year strong. They have started planning their new goals and are ready to start a strong 2015. The Fire Inc. Atlanta team cannot wait for all the great opportunities they will have next year!

Women of Fire Inc. Atlanta- Amber Meredith

Fire Inc. Atlanta attended an Eastern Regional Conference in Orlando in June of this year. One of our clients announced the opportunity to earn an amazing bonus. The top 26 account managers would win an exclusive, expenses paid, 4 day trip to Puerto Rico! The moment Amber knew about this bonus, she was determined to do her best to win one of these coveted spots on the trip. After all her hard work, she was announced as one of the winners! Congratulations Amber, the Fire Inc. Atlanta team is very happy and excited for you. We know that you deserve it!

Let’s take a minute with Amber Meredith and find out how she won the trip:

Question: What was your strategy going into to contest?

Answer: “I knew winning the trip to Puerto Rico would definitely be a challenge because I was completely against account managers nationwide. What helped me succeed was keeping my determination high and envisioning achieving my goal.”

Question: What drives your competitiveness?

Answer: “I love the feeling I get when I challenge myself to beat my own records and achieve more than I previously thought I could.”

Question: Who will you be taking with you?

Answer: “I’m so excited to get to bring a plus one, but I haven’t officially decided who to bring yet.

Again, the Fire Inc. Atlanta team is very proud of Amber’s accomplishments. We can’t wait to hear all about her trip upon her return!

Words of Wisdom Along With Hard Work Results in Success

At Fire Inc. Atlanta, the team knows that in order to reach success, it is important to have the vision of who you want to be and set goals to lead the way. Every day, our team members come full of energy and excited to accomplish their dreams. This hard work is noticed and as a result our team had three recent promotions.

Dustin Vickers, Romeo Silverman and Chris Grilliard were recently recognized at Fire Inc. Atlanta’s top leaders! They are a true example of discipline, hard work, positive attitude and willingness to succeed and grow.

Our leaders shared with the rest of the team that it is important to have someone to look up to. That it is important to keep in mind the words that will inspire you to keep moving forward.

Dustin Vickers stated, “Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.” —Peter Drucker

Romeo Silverman quoted Harry S. Truman, “Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.”

Chris Grilliard’s favorite quote is from Mr. Douglas MacArthur, “A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.”

How about you? What are the words that move you?
