Monthly Marketing Update
- March 2021

It is hard to believe it is March already, and that means that all of us have been through a full year of quarantine. That’s a lot. A lot of emotions, sacrifice, distant learning, mask-wearing, isolation, and so much more. But it has also been a time to see so much kindness, sharing, and resilience-thank you to all the helpers out there.

This past week our team moved out of the office we shared for the past 5 years and into a new space. It was emotional for me to take a few moments to reflect on everything that we have been through in those years: company growth, a global pandemic, cancer diagnosis, death of a team member and friend, moves, new relationships, kids going to new schools, and so much more. It reminds me that the only thing constant is CHANGE. My team and I continue to pedal like crazy, but I feel confident that we are going in the right direction, and we have each other.

Every year we offer an Early Bird 10% discount for those that know they plan to advertise with us, and partner together to provide the most comprehensive resource for our community. There are 2 weeks remaining to reserve 2022 ad space and receive a 10% discount for planning your budget early. Ad creation and billing will not occur until late Fall. I am forever grateful to have the opportunity to work with you, and your company… now and even more so in the future.

Nuggets of Knowledge

"The right direction in life is determined by choice, not chance. If you are going to pedal like crazy, make sure you are going in the right direction! ”- Tom Ziglar

We can’t always anticipate what’s around every corner, but there are often signs telling us of things that will get in the way of our success.
Pay attention to the signs and reroute, even if on a road less traveled.
