Monthly Marketing Update
- January 2020

Have you noticed when you put more meaning into what you do you find yourself more motivated? At Retirement Connection, we begin our weekly team meeting with a "magic moment". A magic moment is when we made a difference, felt a positive impact, improved a connection, or acted as a catalyst for something greater. Our team believes that we are doing more than listing resources and selling ads. Sometimes we are the voice on the phone when a lonely senior is frustrated looking for answers, help when an overwhelmed family doesn’t know where to start, or a resource when a provider simply dropped their phone in a toilet and lost their contact list and know we probably have that name and phone number needed. We all have the opportunity to create a magic moment every day, or at least weekly. It starts with gratitude.

Rather than empty New Year resolutions, instead, resolve to be grateful. Begin each day with what you are grateful for and then follow it with what you "intend" to do. End your day with a reflection of how you did. Don’t make a resolution to lose 10 lbs and make more money. Instead, make the resolution to be healthier and do the most with what you have. Doing so will allow you to have a better chance of accomplishing your goals. For those interested, these are my intentions for the upcoming year.

I am grateful that January marks one year with Tabitha on our team. Changing staff is always something I would rather avoid, but I am always impressed with the new things our staff learns from the experience and about each other; how adaptable we can be; and how we settle into an even better seat on the bus. With only 45 days left before we wrap up the next edition for print, 2020 is going to be our best and most comprehensive edition yet with even more resources. I am looking forward to working with even more providers this year.

Nuggets of Knowledge


"If you want to find happiness, find gratitude."
– Steve Maraboli

We will never ever be happy if we focus on what we want and do not have. We can always find something to be grateful for. This does not mean we are not hurt when someone goes on hospice or fights disease. However, we can choose to be grateful for the opportunity to tell them how much we love and appreciate them before it is too late. Not everyone gets that chance; and we can learn how much more we can manage beyond what we previously believed.
