Imitation vs. Innovation

"Imitation is a kind of artless flattery."
 -Eustace Budgell, 1714

"Imitation is the sincerest of flattery."
 -Charles Caleb Colton, 1820

When I was in high school, my grandfather shared with me- "those that copy others, do so because they lack innovation or the confidence to carry it through". I am thankful for my family who's support has always increased my confidence, and I am proud to have built Retirement Connection by focusing on innovative ideas without having to imitate the hard work of others. It was not easy to start a business in 2008 in a down economy, but now it makes it all more precious to do so with our integrity in tact. -Amy
