Best Work Advice from our Past Presidents of the United States

President’s Day is on February 19, and we wanted to take a moment to honor our country’s forefathers and leaders of the past.  We thought the best way to honor them while encouraging our current Central Florida workforce was to share some inspiring, yet practical words of advice.  What did they think about putting in an honest day’s work?  How did they feel about success and failure?  Check out these nuggets of wisdom below, and what we think about each one:


“Ninety-nine percent of failures come from people who make excuses.” ― George Washington (1732–1799)

Here at KB Staffing, we can tell you from experience that no truer words were ever spoken.  We didn’t build a dependable staffing agency in Winter Haven by making excuses, and neither do our temp workers.  We are proud to have a reliable, hard-working team here in Central Florida.


“A little flattery will support a man through great fatigue” ― James Monroe (1758–1831)

Sometimes, the simplest reminders are the most profound ones.  It’s such a little thing, saying “good job” or “thank you,” but we’ve found that when you say it to the person who’s earned the compliment, it can go along way in motivating him or her to continue to go above and beyond.


“Try and fail, but don’t fail to try.” ― John Quincy Adams

If you’re thinking about trying to earn some extra money with another temp job in Polk County, or you are looking to learn a new trade, there’s no better way to get your feet wet than through temporary or temp-to-permanent work.  Whether you’re interested in trying something new or just trying your hand at some extra work, you can contact us, or apply online today.


“It’s easier to do a job right, than to explain why you didn’t.” ― Martin Van Buren (1782–1862)

As a complete human resources solution for our clients, this quote is an example of one of our core principles.  All of us here, from our permanent staff to our on-demand workforce, puts our focus on getting the job done right, the first time.


We hope that these words of inspiration gave you a glimpse of our work ethic here at KB Staffing.  If you have questions about how we can help you with personalized staffing solutions, make sure to contact us or call 863-875-5721.
