Closing Time

              After more than 30 years of working with companies, trade  groups,

             sports organizations and nonprofits, the time has come for me to retire.

             I will be closing my company as of October 31, 2021.


            To all my clients, employees, colleagues, students, vendors and overall

            supporters of my dream to work for myself, thank you for the chance

            to be a part of your world. I’ve had incredible experiences working

            and learning from each of you.


            Instead of “retirement,” I prefer the term “next chapter.” I look forward

           to traveling again once we get the all-clear, visiting with family and

           friends, and trying new activities I never had time for before. In the

           meantime, we can still stay in touch through my Senior Influential blog.

          Check it out when you have a chance and say hello!
