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.

Last week we hosted the Valley Medical Case Manager event. I wanted to share a synopsis of the story that Karla from case management shared… "This summer I had a patient that almost broke my heart. A retired veteran, living alone without any support or any public assistance, was struggling with ambulation because of his broken wheelchair. He was a double amputee and had fallen several times from his wheelchair at the grocery store and been hurt badly. He had never asked for anything, and we were able to purchase him a used automatic wheelchair for less than $300 with the funds raised at the resource fair. The man cried tears of gratitude for the help and is now living independently and much safer."

Thank you for making our work possible. Retirement Connection is more than a guide. Our work is only possible because of the support of our sponsors/advertisers- please return the favor whenever possible by refer to their services. We are never to busy to be a resource to you. Let me know if we can help you post an event, 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.
