Thanks Scott Thomas, Apex Solutions, for hosting the Friday AM. Chamber President, Jim Hatheway, is asking “Have you signed up for Networking at Noon for April 23rd?”  Dianne Madsen, The Salvation Army Gresham Corps, might be there.
We are so fortunate to have compassionate and experienced members like Barbara Virgilio of Mt Hood Hospice. She shared her passion and talents at April's Health & Wellness program.
The Leadership Academy spent the day at the Salem Capitol… and survived!! Busy and full day. First time several have ever been to the capitol.
Super Majority in the legislature = a Runaway Train
There is no stopping or slowing the train down.
All business sizes are impacted by……
$2,000,000,000 Gross Receipts Tax (HB 3427)
$500,000,000 health care tax (HB 2269)
$1,000,000,000+ new family leave tax (HB 2005)
16 cents a gallon cap and trade (HB 2020)
This is the short list………….

Know your value... and maintain it.

What is your time worth?

That is your value. Any time you offer a discount, you are lowering your value. Make sure you have a good reason to do it if needed. 
Tips for a Healthy, Pet-Friendly Home

Bare floors are best because they are easy to clean and can be very durable. Pick a material that can withstand heavy pet nails such as stone tile, painted concrete, bamboo, or laminate flooring.
