Monthly Marketing Update
- June  2018

The last year (especially the last few months) has brought quite a bit of change for me and Retirement Connection. I don’t know about you, but I am SOOOOOO ready for summer! I am ready to plant my garden and watch it grow; ready for a bit more time with my kiddos while enjoying the longer days; ready to take a fresh breath and face a new normal in both work and personal life. Sometimes I find we are all busy hamsters on the wheel and we don't notice we are going in circles. So today- I will NOT eat lunch at my desk, I will instead go for a walk because it is beautiful outside.

Here is my challenge to you:
- take at least 15 minutes each day to be mindful
- set 1 appointment each week with someone you don’t know
- make an introduction each week to help those you do know
- learn 1 new thing each month
- find 1 thing to be grateful for each day

Let me know if you accept the challenge. I know this is not my usual newsletter greeting, but I thought I would mix it up a bit.

Nuggets of Knowledge

"If I’m weird around you, it’s because I’m comfortable"

In the past 2 months, after the death of a friend and team member, I have struggled at times to "act the person that I am expected to be". Am I too stable, too soon? Am I sad, too long? Am I too focused on the wrong things? So now- I am working to just feel what I feel and be present and authentic. Sometimes it may not hit the nerves of others as I intended, but I am just as likely to hit a different nerve by not being true.
