Monthly Marketing Update
- December 2018

This holiday season is bringing a flurry of emotions for me, and I have a better understanding of how stressful this time can be in the families we serve. Lately, it has been a reminder of special people that are no longer sitting across the table from me, and family members living too far away to see daily. But I am trying instead- to use this opportunity to become more mindful and present in the moments I do have with those I care about. We don’t have to celebrate Thanksgiving to be grateful; we can do that every day.

In my professional life- I am grateful for our sponsors that make our work possible. Every year, our sponsors make a financial decision to part with some of their hard-earned dollars and support a comprehensive guide for the families in our community. Remember, the guide is MORE than just a marketing tool. Retirement Connection is an extension of your marketing department with print, web, and networking. Would you miss: having one convenient guide that lists every licensed community and advertises additional senior-related resources; attending the Release Party – the largest networking event of the year; and/or connecting with case managers at hospital resource fairs? If you benefit from any of this- please thank the many sponsors of Retirement Connection and refer to their businesses when possible.

There is still time to be included in the next edition of Retirement Connection. If you know a business that should be included that is not- please let us know. We would love to chat and see if we are a good fit and find additional resources.

Nuggets of Knowledge

 

"Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough." – Oprah Winfrey

Sometimes gratitude can just be a matter of perspective.
I Am Thankful For..

...the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

...the taxes I pay because it means that I am employed.

...the clothes that fit a little too snug because it means I have enough to eat.

...my shadow who watches me work because it means I am out in the sunshine.

...a lawn that needs mowing, windows that need cleaning and gutters that need fixing because it means that I have a home.

...the spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means I am capable of walking.

...all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech.

...my huge heating bill because it means that I am warm.

...the lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means I can hear.

...the piles of laundry and ironing because it means my loved ones are nearby.

...the alarm that goes off in the early morning hours because it means that I'm alive.

...weariness and aching muscles at the end of the day because it means I have been productive.
