Monthly Marketing Update
- January 2018

Happy New Year! The newest Portland/Vancouver edition just arrived and is being distributed to EVERY physician office, library, senior center, meals on wheels site and hundreds of other locations over the next few weeks. Please join us for the celebration and largest networking event of the year- The Release Party is Thursday, January 25th. The Release Party and is open to everyone, so invite your colleagues and referral sources. Judging by our growth the past year, we are expecting a record turnout and I am excited for you to meet our new staff members- Barret and Brittany.

We will have several boxes available at the Release party, feel free to order additional copies and we will get those delivered quickly. I encourage you to add your label “compliments of…” to the cover of the guide and share it with the families you serve. Families really appreciate having a comprehensive guide of resources.

Nuggets of Knowledge

"Be strong enough to stand alone, be yourself enough to stand apart but be wise enough to stand together when the time comes."

It is challenging to be all of these, and an even bigger challenge to know when is the right time for each. It is incredibly gratifying when you have the courage to stand alone, then turn to see so many others standing with you.
