Monthly Marketing Update
- July 2018

I just returned from a week-long family vacation, and it was awesome. Not because of the excursions or elaborate adventures- but because of the uninterrupted family time together. Sometimes I can get busy with events, responsibilities at work, or other distractions, and I can forget my "why". I think it is important for all of us to take a minute and remember the "why". Why do we choose to work with seniors; why do they choose to work with us; what can we do to make things better for their families and the others we work with?

I know you may be great at taking care of your customers, but remember to also take care of the people you surround yourself with each and every day. Many of us spend more waking hours with our co-wokers, than we do with our own families. Make sure that you make those relationships matter. I owe a big thank you to my work team for holding down the fort, not just last week, but for the entire year. Meghan, Dale, Kyle, Barret, Brittany, Jill, Becky, and of course, Lyman (but he is my husband in real life)- each of you are amazing and a big part of my "why". Thank you!

I hope you join us for the Sponsor Picnic in SE Portland on July 23. Big your friends/family and be a bigger part of our "why". RSVP

Nuggets of Knowledge

"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."
— Franklin D. Roosevelt

Happy Independence Day. Let us all remember those who fought to provide and protect our independence. Let us honor them by becoming great stewards of their efforts with benevolence to others. We can be great, while still being kind.
