Find the event you want to attend, and set "copy to my calendar". You can also set a reminder to be emailed to you with the new features. You can also RSVP, and register directly from the calendar page.

Nugget of Knowledge 

Be a Dreamer

"All successful men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose." -Brian Tracy 

Success is not simply given to us and will not suddenly sneak up on us. It starts out as a dream that we combine with a plan of action. If you can dream of your success, then it's likely to happen. (-commentary this month from Meghan, not Amy) 
PDXpano & benefit for sponsors

PDXpano will be in your area May 14th, 15th, and 16th. While we're in town we'll be waiving travel fees for nearby communities and businesses who'd like to get their Google Business View tour shot. It's a beautiful time of year to get this imagery, take advantage of this opportunity by contacting [email protected] if you'd like to book.
Please contact us if you need additional copies of the Guide. They are available at no cost, and are the perfect resource for health fairs, workshops and your marketing packets.
Thank you for your continued support, we are truly grateful. You are the reason we continue to grow with each edition. Let us know if you would like a media kit sent to you.
