Talener raises over $10k for Cycle for Survival

March 14th, 2017

Continuing the tradition of charitable giving through teamwork, Talener New York took part in Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Cycle for Survival at Equinox Bryant Park this past weekend.  The 18-person team took to the bikes, having raised over $5,000 towards research to battle rare cancers.  All proceeds are used for research efforts within 6 months of the Cycle for Survival event, offering an immediate impact on the lives of rare cancer patients and their families. Friday’s event hosted almost 50 participating teams, bringing the total fundraising to over $33 million for 2017.

New York team leader, and one of Talener’s Directors, Kim Siembieda, reflects on her participation in the event:

“Cycle for Survival is an incredibly inspiring event.  It is emotional and powerful to hear firsthand stories from Memorial Sloan doctors and rare cancer survivors.  Over the past 4 years I have been participating in Cycle for Survival, it is still so motivating to see so many people come together and rally behind such a great cause.  To see the event grow over the years, in terms of participants, money raised and locations across the country, gives so much hope to the battle.”

Amongst four Talener offices, we have raised more than $10,000 for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.  Donation pages are still open until April 1, 2017.  If you would like to donate to the cause, please click here.  On behalf of all Talener offices, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity and support.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

Make Your Bed Every Day: Life Lessons from a Navy SEAL

May 27th, 2014

Navy SEAL Life LessonsGraduation season is in full-swing and around the nation commencement speakers are offering words of wisdom to students embarking on the next step of their life journey. U.S. Navy admiral and University of Texas, Austin, alumnus William H. McRaven returned to his alma mater with a powerful speech that will resonate with everyone – from graduating college seniors to seasoned professionals who have been in the workforce for decades.

Among McRaven’s advice are the following life lessons learned during the grueling six-months of basic training:

Start the day right by making your bed. The small chore will kick off a day of tasks and will help things in perspective as a reminder that the little details matter in life.

If you want to change the world get over being a sugar cookie and keep moving forward. Those in boot camp who didn’t pass uniform inspection (which is everyone at some point) are required to trudge through water fully-clothed and roll around in the sand until they are a fully-covered “sugar cookie.” While many complain about the seemingly-meaningless task – those who understand the practice in patience and fortitude make it through to the entire training period.

Sing when you’re up to your neck in mud. Even the most oppressive task can be lightened when a team member rises to the occasion and tries to motivate the team (through song or any other motivational advice).

Check out the full video of McRaven’s speech below or read the full transcript on Business Insider.
