Monthly Marketing Update
- June 2016


I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend and time to celebrate Memorial Day. We are working on a few new hospital resource fairs, so stay tuned and check your emails for updates and registration links.

New this month, we have started a "Senior Service Network- After Hours” networking opportunity. This meeting will be a 3-5pm evening networking opportunity for Clark County, encouraging a free flow exchange of ideas on a specific topic. Come and network, share ideas and share referrals. The meeting will always be held on the Thursday following the SSN-Clark monthly morning meeting. Our first one is this month, June 23rd, at Clearwater Springs. We'll have happy hour libations and other treats so join us and help shape the conversation!

Nugget of Knowledge


"Learn to smile at every situation. See it as an opportunity to test your strength and ability."- Joe Brown

This quote hung on my grandmother's wall and I read it often growing up. Smiling doesn’t necessarily change what is going on around you, but it does change the way you look at difficult situations. Instead of thinking “why-me”, try to be optimistic. You can choose to make the best of any situation. If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it. When in tough circumstances, you get creative. You get resourceful. Smile, embrace the challenge and see what you are capable of.
