Berger Employees’ New Year’s Resolutions
My New Year’s Resolution is to pay off my debt. Since I started this journey last October, I’ve been able to save $1,000 in an emergency fund and pay the same amount towards debt. I’ve taken a part-time job and cut back my lifestyle dramatically. I plan to have everything but my current car paid off the summer of 2018, and have ALL debt (more than $26,000) paid by early 2019!
Also, to schedule more appointments than Monique!

My New Year’s Resolution is to start new hobbies such as painting, DIY decor, dance classes (salsa and contemporary), and to learn jujitsu.

Berger Corporate/St. Paul – Marketing
My New Year’s Resolution is to be more organized. It is one I have every year. With that said I do not send out late Christmas cards. I send them out between February and March saying “My New Year’s Resolution is to be more organized. This is not a late Christmas Card. It’s your very first Christmas card for this year. I’m so organized.” I hear from family and friends they love getting my “early” late card. Brightens up their winter and spreads the holidays out.
DeLoris Ness, Office Manager
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Someday you’ll realize it’s all small stuff.
Jacqui Payne, Customer Service Coordinator
Well my one never changes – lose weight – but now more so to be healthy for grandkids, work and live. Plan to make it a point to walk more daily – during lunch walk about our building. It is exactly .5 of a mile. I have marked it once since we moved here, so I could do twice around on my lunch break. Hopefully I stay off Facebook during lunch. I know, kinda cheesy, but there it is.
Julie Zavala, Data Entry Associate

Hit 3rd bonus.
Anthony Humphreys, Consumer Sales

I actually have three New Year’s Resolutions pertaining to my work, health and personal life. For work, I want to create a vendor log to keep track of our monthly expenses for my branch office. For health, I had should surgery and not be able to fully exercise so I want to shed 20 pounds once I am recovered. For personal, I have been keeping diaries of my life for the past 35 years so I want to keep maintaining this daily routine.
JC Sanchez, Administrative Assistant
I commit to something new each year, and this year I am committing (my wife and I) to spend more time with my family: Mom, Dad, two sisters, two nieces, and my nephew!
Richard Rudeen, Business Development Manager
To hire five owner operator over-the-road drivers.
Paul Hansen, General Manager
I ponder my resolution and wonder what it should be,
Do I choose just one thing, or maybe do three?
Do I pledge to be kinder, truthful and faithful?
Or plan to lose weight, taking less on each plate full?
Perhaps just be nicer, or maybe worker harder and longer?
Help others more, see the world with more wonder?
Donate more. Clean out my closets and basement,
Send out more cards, make more family arrangements?
Work on a budget, one that can actually work,
Plan out weekly meals, try to put down my fork?
Should I give up chocolate, candy, cookies and ice cream,
Or maybe just Brussels sprouts and liver so I don’t make myself scream!
I’m starting to consider, what’s the point of it all?
I’m just setting myself up for a devastating fall.
Whatever I choose, I know it won’t last,
Within a week or two it’s all in my past.
I’ll feel guilty and frustrated then have to admit that I failed,
I knew I should have picked something I could easily have nailed.
I should choose to eat more pizza, ice cream and cake,
But that’s not a real resolution, it’d all be a fake.
As I consider my options with disdain and dread,
I put the decision off again and just head to bed.
I’m making it harder than this all needs to be,
After all, will I keep this resolution one week or three?
I’ve agonized over choices and wondered what I should do,
Then realized I’m anxious for all this to be through.
Whatever I choose, whatever I’ve done,
I’m still the same person so no harm is done.
Then my resolution came to me – very crystal clear,
I’m putting off making one, maybe I’ll make one next year!

My New Year’s Resolution is to buy LESS stuff for my kids during the year, so that they actually NEED stuff at Christmas! That would make the Holiday so much easier, less stressful AND more enjoyable!

To find a hobby. In just about everything that you do, meeting someone new, going on an interview, filling out applications, a lot of the time it asks what your hobbies are. I don’t think I have a hobby. I want to be able to have an answer and find a hobby. I have no idea what that would be yet, but my goal is to find one!
Meridith Curtis, Domestic Account Manager
My resolution is to continue learning and keep looking for ways to improve the customer experience.
Michelle Sagisser, Move Coordinator
Berger St. Paul – Customer Success Team
My New Year’s Resolutions have generally been about myself – how will I get in shape, excel at work, fix my house… This year, my resolution is about family and staying better connected. I do not live in the same state and see sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles maybe once a year. My resolution is to call and connect – have an actual conversation – with an extended family member once a week.
Jill Rush, Director of Client Solutions
My New Year’s Resolution for 2018 is to always talk to customers with a smile no matter what over the phone or in person!
