Monthly Marketing Update
- April 2019

Last year taught me a lot of things about dealing with loss and that I should stop focusing so much on "someday", but instead relish every moment of today. Old habits are hard to break, and I often still find myself in between waiting for something to happen and planning for something- both in my personal and business life. This is the advice I give myself, that may help you… when at a networking meeting enjoy the current conversation and make the most of that connection; when at an event be present and choose to enjoy the interactions; and simply be nice to people no matter how hostile they may seem- you never know what they are secretly managing. In the end, I can only manage- me!

Thank you to everyone who is still that "planner" and chose to take advantage of the early bird discount. This was the largest response to our early bird discount EVER. To our sponsors, please join us on April 17th for our sponsor breakfast. If you are not a sponsor, consider becoming one before that date, to take advantage of additional networking. Brittany has set up new Case Manager Resource Fairs at Mt Hood, Providence Portland, and Good Samaritan- registration is now open for our sponsor; space will open to the public 2 weeks prior to event date (space permitting). Now, enough planning… go enjoy the "Right Now".

Nuggets of Knowledge

"Live in the moment and be present in all that you do. Don't worry yourself with what happened yesterday or what's going to happen tomorrow. Stay focused with what's in front of you."
- Michael Trevino

I often don’t enjoy right now enough, because I am busy planning for what comes next. What we thought may be on the horizon can always change- so relish every moment, especially the little things. When I enjoy the little things- the bigger things require less planning.
