I don't have to tell you times like these are unprecedented and unpredictable. My hope is we never see this again, but it is happening right now, and there is nothing we can do about it.
To be honest, I don't want to talk about the dreaded "C" word. What else is there to say?
We feel like we are in a card game and we were sitting on a full house or four aces and the dealer just out of the blue says give me your cards and you’re going to get five new cards! Oh, and there is one more catch, your bet has to stay on the table.
Fair? Nope, but it is our reality. The deck is being reshuffled, and it's up to us to decide how we want to play the next hand.
This week we are launching Advoco Connect in a virtual format. Have we ever done this before? Nope, not really, but we are giving it a go!
I am so proud of the Advoco team and our partner, Infor, for not letting fear or doubt win. To be bold enough to try something new and set the tone for what is to come in the future.
We are ecstatic that so many of you have decided to join Advoco this week on this new journey. A journey that we hope will have meaning and lasting effects on you and your business. An effect that will allow you to Make an Impact, not only on you, but in your organization, your family, and your community.
Can we do anything to change our current situation? Nope. But what we can change is the way we view the world and how we choose to make an impact each and every day. That is what virtual Connect is all about.
It’s time to think differently. To see the world in a different light and realize the new hand that we have been dealt can be better than the hand we had before.
See you at Connect, virtually!
Until next time…I’m Marty, make every minute count.
