 How to Define Success on Your Own Terms
  by Karima Mariama-Arthur 
How we view success and our access to it is often limited by someone else's definition. We feel badly when we feel we haven't measured up to an external standard.  In doing so, we rob ourselves of the opportunity to define and appreciate our unique experiences and how they impact our lives for the better.

If you've grappled with what success means to you, it's time to take control of the narrative and determine what it means for you-on your own terms. Here's how.

 Changes to Weekly E-News, REACH
Changes to Our Weekly E-News in 2019
With the robust programs moving the positive business climate in Longview forward, our direct communications to our customers have increased over the past two years.  In respect to your inbox, in 2019 we will publish the e-news twice per month, rather than every week.  We will continue with our bi-monthly REACH publication, our social media, and direct emails for critical issues and programs.  Our goal is to communicate intentionally and lessen the overall noise, and we think this will help!
