Take Me Out to the Ballgame Contest

Is it the Cubs or the Cards? You decide whose team to be on in our “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” Contest.

BATTER UP: April 7, 2019

Here’s all you need to do

  1. Let us know what team you are playing for and a players name from that team that you choose. For instance – Cubs, Anthony Rizzo. You will then become (your first name) Rizzo for any social media post we make during the contest. Hurry with your selection, you don’t want to be stuck with a name you don’t want – like Carl, Jr.
  2. Give us a referral and net a home run; if your referral starts a contract during our contest period, you have just gotten a grand slam!
  3. Turn your time tickets in on time (no phone call necessary) and get a double.
  4. Pick up an extra shift and get a double.
  5. Get a patient nomination for a Daisy Award and you just hit a home run!

It’s that easy . . . the person with the most runs becomes our MVP and wins our grand prize! Since you are either a Card or a Cub, our winning team will also get a reward. The winning team won’t necessarily be the team with our MVP. So, will it be the Cubs or the Cards?

But wait, you can lose your position on the team or get benched if:

  1. You fall out of compliance.
  2. You are injured.
  3. There is a valid customer complaint

Fidelity On Call CEO Advocates for Women Business Owners

Fidelity On Call CEO, Pat Drake, attended the 2018 National Women’s Business Owners Conference for the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) in Spokane, Washington.

Moderator: Nina Roque, Executive Director of the National Women’s Business Council. Panelists: Kathleen Diamond, Dr. Terry Neese, and Virginia Littlejohn

One of the highlights was the panel of women who talked about how they changed the plight of women business ownership within 1988. This was a challenge many women in business have faced, as less than 30 years ago, women who wanted a business loan in many U.S. states were required to provide a signature from a male relative. The “final straw” for these ladies was when a woman business owner had to take her 17 year old son out of school to co-sign her loan!
