November 2023

It's November!

November is a time for giving thanks and a wonderful opportunity to work on bringing more gratitude into our lives. It's also a time that many feel the rush of the holiday season and the end of the year; a time when we may feel that time is indeed passing by too quickly. It's an opportunity to consciously work on staying in the moment and appreciating the now. Practicing gratitude is a wonderful way to place our focus on today.

In 2021, we started a new tradition: 30 days of gratitude during the 30 days of November. The month of November is Gratitude Month. Believe it or not, it's November again so here we go for round 3!

How can you participate? Easy! Pick whatever you want to be grateful for and however you want to express that gratitude. For example, you can pick something you are grateful for starting with the letter A on day one, then B, and so on. Or you can pick something new each day. You can share your gratitude via social media, in a journal, say it out loud, or however works best for you. Put post-it notes around your home or set an alert on your phone for a daily reminder.

We will also be sharing ideas for how to practice gratitude and we would love to hear your ideas, too!

Follow us on Facebook, IG, LinkedIn, and/or Twitter to keep up with our daily posts. All our social links are available at and the bottom of our newsletter.

We aim to help each other to practice gratitude each day this month and inspire others to do the same.

What are we grateful for this month? All of you!

In addition to a month of gratitude, November contains many other noteworthy celebrations. The entire month is recognized as Native American Heritage Month, and it presents an opportunity to learn more about the history, traditions, and contributions of the Indigenous Americans. PBS is supporting Native American Heritage Month with a vast slate of programming. The 11th is Veterans Day: a day to honor all who have served. November 13 kicks off World Kindness Week with World Kindness Day. It also kicks off Global Entrepreneurship Week. And, of course, Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday shopping season.

This November and holiday season, we are again partnering with AMIBA for the Shop Indie Local national holiday shopping season campaign. This campaign aims to inspire our communities to shift their holiday spending to locally owned and independent businesses while also providing support to these businesses.

It is a busy month for sure. Wishing you all the best that November has to offer!

To Your Success!

Shop Indie Local

This November and holiday season, we are again partnering with AMIBA for the Shop Indie Local national holiday shopping season campaign. This campaign aims to inspire our communities to shift their holiday spending to locally owned and independent businesses while also providing support to these businesses.

Businesses: It's time to prepare for the holiday shopping season. If you provide goods or services for Thanksgiving, make sure to market those ahead of time. After Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday all present opportunities to market your goods or services. Authors can offer deals on their books, event planners can offer deals on upcoming events, restaurants can offer gift cards, organizations can offer special deals - there are many ways to market all sorts of goods and services during the holiday shopping season. *Members* Remember to send us your holiday specials for inclusion in our annual shopping marketing.

Consumers: Starting with our Thanksgiving meal, try purchasing more of your holiday gifts and celebration needs from our friends and neighbors — locally owned business owners.

Money Matters with Monica

November is Long-Term Care Awareness Month

You may have heard about the importance of being protected in case of a long-term care event. I’d like to share with you this video about long-term care:

Long-term care is a major issue facing Americans that many people don’t know enough about. It’s important to understand how having a long-term care strategy can benefit and protect your loved ones. 

If you’re interested in developing a long-term care strategy, I can help. I’d be happy to set up some time to review this information with you.
