Monthly Marketing Update
- February 2020

We had great attendance at our Release Party last week at the new venue. There was much more room for networking and we received great feedback about the quality of connections and interactions among guests. I hope this venue will work for us for a few years and we don’t outgrow anther space. Here is a link to the photos.

Now that the guides are out and the party has passed we are working on the next 3 most important tasks at hand:

1) Early Bird savings of 10% if you want to save on next year’s ad, the billing and ad copy is not due until fall 2020.

2) We are beta testing the new features of and hope to see more communities reporting their availability- it is free.

3) We have numerous requests for extra guides. Kyle is catching up on the ones we received last week. Please email me asap if you need more. We always encourage you to put a label on the cover “compliments of”, and thank you for being a resource for those you serve.

Nuggets of Knowledge

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” – Edith Wharton

I have been fortunate to receive praise at times simply for the proximity of excellence. I did not always directly accomplish myself but was part of a group. I try very hard to surround myself with people that are focused, motivated, and kind. It is much easier to be a mirror for that behavior. Of all the things that are in my “job description,” I feel the most important is being the mirror to my team, so they shine.
