Hot Tip For Managing Your Calendar
Retirement Connection Event Calendar

Having a hard time managing all of the events and networking opportunities you attend?  Well, there may be an easier way to populate and update your calendar using the resources already posted on Retirement Connection's website - here's how:

  1. Go to the Networking Page 
  2. Click on the button for the Events Calendar at the top of that page.
  3. Once the calendar opens, on the bottom right, click the button for "Google Calendar".
  4. This will add this calendar and all supporting info to your calendar page if you use Google Calendar. 
  5. You can then also sync Google Calendar with Outlook, smart phones and other applications.

What's so great about this? As meeting locations or topics change- your calendar is automatically updated as we receive the updated details. We also provide a web link to more information for your calendar. The networking calendar remains independent from your personal entries for quick viewing.
(you will need a FREE google email account to do this)


We are happy to assist you in setting this up - call Amy

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
