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 is no longer part of our work family. We have put hiring a new person "on hold" for the immediate time being- to ensure we don't continue an unfair comparison of personalities. However, 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 and 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.

I am excited about several hospital case manager events:
1) We are expecting a great turnout this week at the Providence Everett Case Management event with our sponsors
2) Several sponsors are attending the WMCMA event next week and took advantage of the complementary "add on" to create a CEU poster with us
3) Making the Link in Tacoma is sold out and we expect a huge turnout of social workers case managers to join

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.
