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

Make a Choice
"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson


We forget that we have a choice in how we respond to an event?  We can choose to be angry, let something just roll off our backs, or choose to focus on a positive. The anger keeps us from moving on, and we are not paying attention when the good stuff happens. We have a choice- which did you make? 

- Amy  

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.

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.
