Notes From Lori

Happy July and Happy Summer! We have a short week for the 4th of July holiday and we need it to rest up from a tremendous June. Thank you to ClearCause for honoring me with their Sunshine Award when in fact, it is Sheryl Hill and her team that bring US sunshine each day! Thanks to Amy Lokken for a great PowerLunch last week! You've helped all of us with your branding strategies.  Remember that all of our PowerLunch topics can be viewed on our YouTube channel or forwarded to a friend. I had the opportunity to speak to the New Business Minnesota group last week. The first "real" talk since my cancer diagnosis and I am pleased to say it went well and my voice is working and holding its own. A big accomplishment for me! We received a challenge from my friend Melody Hach and her staff and clients for a softball event in August. OffiCenters vs1600 Executive Suites (another company like ours) in a game for bragging rights. We are drafting a team as we speak and will keep you posted on the date and time. Players and supporters will receive a Work Awesome Play Awesome shirt and VOC cap, along with food, beer and fun. Talk to someone on our staff and they will have Amanda Johnson, our PA and Softball Guru/Team Captain contact you. Let's have a great July. Take some time to relax and enjoy a great MN Summer.
