Consistency is Key

By Mandy Gradert

Small Bets = Big Results

By Casey Schultz

Wouldn’t it be great if small bets always led to big results? I’m not much of gambler, but even I know that you can’t expect to win on every bet you place – no matter if it’s at a casino, related to a sporting event or just a friendly office wager. Every scenario is different, but there is still a chance that you might come out on top or you might not, but you never...

World Record Egg

By Kristi Kooima

If you know world_record_egg , you are familiar that the egg recently set out to break the record for “likes” on an Instagram post. The previous record holder was Kylie Jenner’s post about her daughter with about 19 million likes. The original egg post broke her record in just nine days and now the account has more than 10 million followers. I’m honestly not too concerned with this world record post, but it did catch...

I want to share an important lesson that I learned during a field exercise at Basic Training and how it relates to something I try to bring to Caliber every day. Towards the end of Basic Training, everyone goes to the field to use all the skills they learned in the previous weeks. We were exhausted from training all day, digging our foxholes, setting up defensive positions and putting up our tents for the night...
