From Your Executive Director

February may be the shortest month of the year but there is plenty of opportunity to contribute to the growth you want to see in your future. I’ve already identified a few things that are no longer serving me and want to take this month to plan, and act now going into the spring time season. At PG, our first priority is you, our members, and our Refuel event in March is engineered to equip you with new tools and ideas for the best 2023. Register here to join our lunch & learns geared to show you what’s new.

For our distributor members this is our last call to register for the Annual Meeting in Cancun, MX! If you haven’t done so already, please register here.

In this month’s newsletter, we want to help you let go of what might be holding you back and gain momentum toward accomplishing your goals. Let’s get focused. Keep reading!

A Simple Trick to Improve Positive Thinking

Why does a failure seem to stick in our minds so much longer than a success? According to social psychologist Alison Ledgerwood, our perception of the world tends to lean negative, and reframing how we communicate could be the key to unlocking a more positive outlook. In this sharp talk, Ledgerwood shares a simple trick for kicking negative thinking to the curb so we can start focusing on the upside.

Meet Kippie Helzel

Director, Strategic Partnerships

Spector & Co.

Q: What's your favorite project of all time?

A:  Planning a three week trip to Italy for a group of up to 15 people (at different points on the journey)--some family (my sister Felicia and her family), some oldest and dearest friends, some newer and dearest friends. Four stops, Ischia, the Amalfi Coast, Tuscany and then Liguria (Camogli). It was a lot of pressure to arrange it all, but it all turned out GREAT. Thanks to additional insights and input from some as it came together. But it was MY trip, and it just couldn't have been better, it felt great to know that it gave so much happiness to so many.

Q: If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?

A: Would have to be spaghetti with marinara!! My marinara sauce, of course (well, my mother's recipe). Short cooking keeps the tomatoes "fresh" (canned San Marzanos), a little onion, garlic, hot red pepper and a BIG handful of fresh chopped basil at the end). It's my comfort food, and i love it as much or better reheated in butter the next day! My mother was the BEST cook, she might have been born and raised in Italy, but she could cook any type of cuisine. But marinara....just yum!!

Q: Any upcoming events/news you want to share from your company with our network?

A:  VIVA LAS VEGAS!!! So excited about our new Las Vegas Facility, opening March 2023!! We will be able to offer 24 hour service, shorter transit times and freight savings with this new production center. It is going to be AMAZING for our US customers, and a huge opportunity to align strategically even more strongly with all our Premier Group partners!!
