Monthly Marketing Update
- May 2021

So far we have distributed 6 full pallets of books already, and I am pleased that so many clinic locations took extra boxes. Every hospital (except one) received guides and many asked for extra boxes so that each unit could keep its own supply. Meghan and I are connecting with our current sponsors, as we are offering a 10% early bird discount for reserving your 2022 ad space early. Ad copy and billing are not needed until next year, this is just a small thank you for saving your space early. The good news is you get better ad placement as well, for planning in advance!

What was the best part of your week? Seriously- Tell me!!!! I want some happy news because this pandemic makes every day feel like the movie “Ground Hog Day”. Last week, the team and I had left the office for a busy three-day work retreat. We shared personal struggles; celebrated successes; planned for the next year; and just supported each other. The best part of my week was playing kickball with my work family (and it was NOT because of our athletic prowess- Becky actually fell down running to 3rd base- FOR NO REASON).

I know you must be sick and tired of the ZOOM interactions, but we do value the opportunity to see your face and hear your voice. We have moved the “Transitions of Care” Zoom call to the 4th Thursday of the month, to allow better attendance from more hospitals. We are tentatively planning for the 11am time frame, but please check our website, as this may change.

Additional Resources

There are so many resources included in Retirement Connection, that often a few may slip past you and may not be noticed. Did you know that the guide also includes:

Attorneys & Elder Law and Estate Planning


Nuggets of Knowledge


“I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead." - Blaise Pascal

Sometimes it is easier to share a lot of words quickly, rather than to say something briefly but to the point with more meaning. Brevity forces us to cut ambiguity and conditional language. A concise message has both value and challenges.
