Monthly Marketing Update
- November 2018

Last week we had a guest speaker for our staff meeting. There were many many great takeaways- but my favorite was "What if the things that happened TO us, actually happened FOR us?" At times we have all wondered why me. What if we saw each stumble as an opportunity to learn, become stronger, find another route, or see support from an unlikely source? I am not the person I have become in spite of circumstances, I am this person because of them. A great example at work is when I think of competition-this can be a great opportunity to look for innovation. Without competition, we may rest on our laurels and not push ourselves to be greater. Competition can be a gift.

Retirement Connection is the most comprehensive local resource in our area. If you are marketing to seniors and their families, how else do you consistently stay in front of 50,000 families and providers? For those that are not a sponsor, but use the guide in your business or share it with families- please refer to our sponsors when possible; without them, we would not have this resource. We are already working on the next edition, and we are constantly making updates and additions, please let us know of additional resources you wish to see. We are never too busy to be a resource to you. Let me know if we can help you post an event, post an article or news, deliver guides, or just be a sounding board.

Nuggets of Knowledge


"Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out." – John Wooden

I have never believed that everything happens for a reason, but I very much believe that you can find a reason for everything that happens. I know it is a subtle difference. We may experience hardship and other moments of extreme joy. The tough times can teach us how resilient we can be, and bring support from others we never would have reached out to. It is easier to find the good when you look for it.
