Monthly Marketing Update
- February 2019

Thank you to all who attended the Release Party last week for Greater Portland/Vancouver! We were excited to have a such a great turnout with over 400 people. If you were not able to join us - you were missed. You can also
view photos online. Thank you to so many that have supported our growth and has also been supportive of our team. It is because of you using the guide with your patients and clients that we are able to bring value to every family looking for care and services. Please let us know if you need additional guides.

As we do every year- we offer a 10% early bird discount for those that know they plan to be in next year’s guide. By reserving early you save 10% off your ad and receive better placement in the guide. The early bird discount will run through March 15th. Payments and ad copy are not due until late 2019. Please NOTE that we will be having a rate increase for 2020- the first time in 10 years. The rate increase is due to increased paper cost and growth in our distribution since we started and we hope you understand. If you take advantage of the Earlybird discount, you will NOT see a rate increase. This means that you save 10% discount on the current rates and an average of $200 additional savings.

IMPORTANT - Many people did not realize that we welcome you to add your label to the cover with "Compliments of…" and to share the guide with others. We will give you as many copies as you will use. You do not have to be a sponsor to share the guide. We want all families to have access to resources and services as soon as a need arises.

Nuggets of Knowledge

“Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” - Joshua Marine

What if adversity isn't happening TO you, but instead it's happening FOR you? Every challenge can be a lesson you needed to learn, every rejection was actually protection, and you were given THIS mountain to show others that it can be moved? I don't believe everything happens for a reason, but I DO believe we can find meaning and purpose in everything that happens.
