Monthly Marketing Update
- March 2018

February was a crazy busy month, as we coordinated 4 different hospital case manager events.- now I am happy to be on the other side of it. Through these events, we were able to raise more than $10k for hospital low-income patients in need. If you followed us on Facebook, you may have seen our team attending many other community events. I remain so thankful to work with other leaders in our community like you, who inspire us to make a difference every day. This was an exhausting, but powerful month.

Every year we run an early bird 10% discount for anyone wanting to reserve ad space for the upcoming year. The deadline for the 2019 discount is very near- March 15th. Ad copy is not due until the fall and payments can be spread into next year. Please take a moment to let me know if there is someone I should reach out to include in the next edition.

Nuggets of Knowledge

"A team is not a group of people who work together. A team is a group of people who trust each other.” – Simon Sinek

I sometimes see teams and work groups focus on annual “team building exercises". The building of a quality team doesn’t happen because you set aside a few hours once a year, it happens because you set aside time when it is needed and you know and really care about the others on your team. Then these “exercises” are just a fun time with your friends.
