JULY  2023

From Your Executive Director

As we close out July, it's the perfect time to hit the reset button and recharge before the back-to-school season. Consider stepping away from screens and immersing yourself in the beauty of the outdoors in order to gain perspective, reflect on your accomplishments so far, and set new goals or refocus on past goals for the months ahead.

Checking on our plans and progress is crucial as we enter the last quarter of the year. It's an opportunity to evaluate what has worked well and what needs adjustment. By reviewing goals and strategies, we can identify any gaps or areas for improvement and make necessary changes. Attending events like PG's upcoming Refuel can be an excellent way to prepare and gain inspiration. Refuel serves as a valuable resource to stay up to date with our supplier members and explore potential opportunities that can propel us towards a successful end to the year.

In this month’s newsletter, we aim to provide tools to consider when taking the time to reset. You’ll find articles, products, and social media images for you to share in an effort to help you and remind you that it’s okay to reset, recenter, and refuel. To learn more about our Refuel event, August 28 - Sept 1 - click here or keep reading!

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

A:  Tacos all day, every day!! Yes please!!! Chicken, beef, fish, shrimp, pork - any kind of taco. Soft or hard shell, even a taco salad will work! As long as there is a portein with shredded cheese, lettuce, tomato, salsa and sour cream, it's a go! And of course a side of tortilla chips never hurts.

Q: What's your personal mantra/motto?

A: Go the extra mile - it's never crowded. I'm a big believer in being a bit extra, in a good way. It's a fast paced industry but to be successful you must allow time to follow-up, be accessible, think outside of the box and be proactive. In addition I think it's important to always provide some kind of solution to a customer's request even if you don't have exactly what is needed.

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

A:  We've increased our 48-hour standard production time for 1 color imprints from 4 product categories to 7. SEVEN!!!! This is not a service you have to ask for, it's standard. We are leading the industry with these production times and are excited to be able to partner with our Premier Group Members to help meet those quick in hands dates.
