DUDE…WHERE’S MY CARGO?? by Lisa Arseneau

Lisa-Arseneau

It’s that time of year again. The Christmas Season is notoriously known to be the worst time for cargo thefts. Aside from the financial impacts of cargo theft there is an increasing level of violence being used against truckers. Cargo theft has also found a place in organized crime, which provides a network of criminals […]

All I Can Say Is…..Trusted Advisor or Necessary Evil? by Lisa Arseneau

Lisa-Arseneau

Recently, I’ve had to choose a “trusted advisor” regarding financial aspects of my business and personal life. We all arrive at a time in our lives that we have to do this. I dreaded it. I actually procrastinated for months and wanted nothing to do with it. This is quite ironic, coming from me, whom […]

All I Can Say Is…..April 2016 By Lisa Arseneau

April is such a refreshing month! It’s a month where things are unpredictable, like the weather. It’s a month that firmly sets us in 2016, being the first month of the second quarter. It’s a time to shake off the winter blues and look forward to fresh thoughts and ideas. It’s ironic how April is […]

Here it is, the close of another year. And what a year it has been. If you are anything like me, you have met new and amazing people. You have learned something new. You have done something different. Isn’t that what we should all want?  I’m an avid “bootcamper”. I’ve met some really great and […]

September 11th…such an important date in our recent history. I find myself reflecting on the horrific events of that day. The sorrow, loss and terror we all felt that day, and even now, and the sense of helplessness are deeply ingrained in all of us. Our industry is so intertwined with the U.S. We are […]

All I Can Say Is….July 2015- By Lisa Arseneau

It’s hard to believe that it is already July. Time sure does have a way of not only marching on, but sometimes, sprinting on! I looked back at my last article and was reminded of all of the upcoming industry events that I was attending. They were everything and more than what I was hoping […]

As I sit here, writing this, I’m reflective on so many things already this year. It’s the first week of April and already we’ve had a time change, a season change, although after this past weekend’s snow, I’m not sure! We’ve experienced horrors from around the globe from terrorist groups and so many lives have […]

What a great amount of support I have been witness to lately! It is exhilarating and really gives one a shot in the arm. The Trucking Industry was shown some real love on February 25th, 2015 when the TTSAO hosted a Round Table discussion focusing on MELT (Mandatory Entry Level Training). The Honourable Steven Del […]

All I can Say Is…January 2015 by Lisa Arseneau

It’s human nature to close off things and start things anew. For example, we close off 2014 and start 2015. We close off first quarter and start second quarter. We close our Rogers account only to open a Bell account. We close our cottages in October only to open them back up in May…if we’re […]
