Monthly Marketing Update
- September 2018

Last month, our team gathered for a few days together with our families. It was a time to reflect on what we most appreciate, and what are our hopes are moving forward. My favorite part of the week was when we took the time to share our “last will” and what we would give to or leave each other. Most of us cried at least once and we all realized that our strength lies in the support we receive from those around us. Make sure that you invest in your team- whether it be the personal or professional players around you.

If you have not done so already make sure to RSVP for the Retirement Connection Sponsor Breakfast in Portland this Friday, September 7th!

Nuggets of Knowledge

"The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team." - Phil Jackson

I am very grateful to be surround by awesome team members- personally and professionally. But it doesn’t happen without effort. Make sure you learn from your all stars, compensate for injured players, and work to strengthen your new players. You will only be as strong as your weakest link and sometimes realize that link may be you.
