January Marketing Update - Southern OR
(Roseburg, Medford, Grants Pass, & Klamath Falls areas)

Last month was a busy month for us. Amid the holiday cheer- we distributed all of our copies of the limited edition sample guide, and hosted our first hospital case management event for Southern Oregon. We are off to a great start as we move forward with the May edition of the new guide.

Many of our new advertisers have already shared that they have received a referral from the hospital, our website or from the new guide, so we are happy to see it is working- even with the very limited print run we did for the "sample guide". Please contact us if you need additional advertising information or have a suggestion or referral. Take advantage of Early Bird pricing!

We are a complete marketing package: Print, Web & Network.

Problem Solving

"The way to remove darkness from a room is simply to turn on a light. In the same way- to rid yourself of any difficulty, concentrate on the solution rather than the problem.""

- Chinese Proverb 


When we get busy or overwhelmed, it easy easier to focus on the daunting tasks and lack of time- not knowing where to begin. I find it helps me to pick one thing, complete the one thing and just move to the next. Don't focus on what is not complete, but relish in the joy of those accomplished. Just keep plugging along. 

 - Amy  

Thank you to those that have already shown your support and reserve your ad space, we are truly grateful. You are the reason we continue to grow with each edition.
