Monthly Marketing Update
- October 2019

I am starting my day with a box of Kleenex in anticipation for the moments when I realize Barret has moved to Los Angeles, and no longer part of our work family. We have put hiring a new person "on hold" for the immediate time being- as to ensure we don't continue an unfair comparison of personalities. BUT as I stare at this box, I remember how I felt when I was going through the interview process with him two years ago (and I was NOT excited then either). Honestly, I hate hiring, but I love the way our team engulfs new members and indoctrinates them into our culture… so I am going to remain optimistic. On that note, our team has been working for several months on our "Creed" and we are very proud of what we have created, so I wanted to share it with you. Our Creed is how we live out our values and mission. I feel the best way to make sure you live up to something is to put it in writing and share it with others. Our "Creed" is now posted near the bottom of our About Us page of the website. I welcome your feedback.

As long as I am oversharing, here is more… Tuesday was my husband’s final chemo therapy treatment. YAY. He remains tough as nails through this. We both appreciate everyone’s ongoing support and encouragement, as well as how "normal" you have let things remain for us.

Last but not least- please make sure Retirement Connection is part of your 2020 marketing budget and plans!

Nuggets of Knowledge


"A player who makes a team great is more valuable than a great player. Losing yourself in the group, for the good of the group - that's teamwork. " – John Wooden

As our team make up changes with those that move on and new hires- this quote resonates with me. It is always more important (and often more challenging) to find a person that elevates the entire team more than an individual.
