I hope this message finds each of our members well during these unique and interesting times. It is hard to believe it has already been several weeks since our last meeting. I am disappointed to say we have canceled our May meeting out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health and welfare of our members although SME Live has only been postponed to the fall.
It is very easy to get discouraged at times like this but I want to offer a positive note. With the days getting longer and warmer, it has been great to see people out in their front yards talking to neighbors more regularly and spending time accomplishing tasks at home. We are no exception and I am perpetually exhausted from my kids challenging me to wrestling matches. Spend an extra few minutes working “on” your business rather than “in” your business and maybe clean out that stack of paperwork you have been ignoring. Give a fellow SME member a call to say hello and see what you could do to support them.
Hopefully this note can be received as a small nudge of encouragement to each of our members. I truly look forward to seeing everyone (and some guests) at our June social/dinner at the Topeka County Club.
Best wishes to you all and we will see you soon at TCC!
