March
Happy Spring!  Or at least that’s what the calendar says.  The calendar also says that we have just about completed the first quarter of 2018!  Where did time go?  Are you where you hoped you’d be by now?  I’m not, but I know that Spring is a time of growth and rebirth so its time to reconnect & prioritize.  Reset your goals, perhaps they have changed.

Spring is a great to refocus on growing your business thought BCRCC.  There is no time like the present to engage in a new program, participate in round table, attend a lunch or just meet with me about introductions.

Spring has Sprung!
There is no time like the present to Grow your business.

April
As spring arrives, for real this time with the right weather, I want to get of out the office & see you.
I’d love tour of business and the opportunity to meet your team and learn how we can help you connect your business.  I will be reaching out to many of you, but if you’d like to set up a visit, please call or email me.

May
Summer is here!  I often find myself making great plans to get out early and enjoy the summer days.  Then before I know it Labor Day is here and I’ve spent the summer at my desk.
I have made pledge to not do that this year.  Summer is a great time for team building activities.  Take the time, the work will always be there. Get out and enjoy the weather.  Plan something great to do with your team like a ball game or charitable event.
Whatever you do, don’t let summer pass you by.
