Puget Sound
Monthly Marketing Update- February 2022

We are in the FINAL weeks to reserve ad space in our annual Retirement Connection Guide for Puget Sound. Meghan, Barret, and Mindy from our team have been working on ad content for sponsors, confirming grid information for hosing and homecare, and meeting with our sponsors. I have been a delivery girl replenishing the hospitals and libraries with guides. It is worth mentioning: hospitals needed 32 additional boxes and libraries needed an additional 40 boxes. These numbers represent an INCREASE beyond what they normally hand out. We now have very few guides remaining to last until the next printing. Demand has been very high this past year.

As we wrap up for print, our team is hopeful that we will be able to again host IN PERSON events this Spring and celebrate the new Release of Retirement Connection of Puget Sound with you. We have secured the Tacoma Yacht Club for April 28th, and we are working on plans for mid May on Mercer Island.

Hopefully you saw our post on Facebook last week as we welcomed the newest member of our team, Elizabeth Hansen. Both Retirement Connection and continue to thrive and we need a bit more support to keep up. With the new site launch of our analytics have exploded-YAY!!!!! Those details are shared below.

Nugget Of Knowledge
“There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in.” - Leonard Cohen

I am not comfortable showing vulnerability, no one really is. When I am more transparent with my struggles, I am grateful for the support received. More importantly, it helps others feel less alone in their struggles, and they see a more authentic version of me. So don’t cover all the cracks, let the light come in.
