Monthly Marketing Update- April 2022

It is so hard to believe that it has been 2 full years that we have navigated this pandemic- UGH!!! We have all learned how to provide our services in new ways and remain vital during the pandemic. We have all shifted our marketing budgets, made choices, and learned to work differently. Thank you so very much to every sponsor of Retirement Connection. We would not be able to provide a comprehensive resource to the community; or post events, news, and articles online; or report real-time availability without your support. Our work is made possible because of our sponsors/advertisers. Please return the favor, by referring to their services whenever possible. Thank you to our sponsors that have already reserved space for 2023 and took advantage of the early bird discount. It means a great deal that half our sponsors already committed to working with us next year.

We have been holding monthly Transitions of Care zoom calls and shared case management feedback. We would love to see an increase in participation on these calls, please encourage your referral sources in housing and home care and hospice to join. More details are below.

Sponsors, save the date… we are hosting “A Taste of Derby” exclusively for our sponsors. Our sponsors should start looking for their derby hats now and plan to join us on the morning of May 7th for remote viewing of the Kentucky Derby and wine tasting at The Four Graces Winery.

Nugget Of Knowledge
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."

Having talent helps, but hard work is far more important. Not just as a sports metaphor -but work ethic matters in our relationships, our jobs, our parenting, and even our hobbies.
