President's Message

PPC members, I hope you are all doing good personally and your respective businesses are strong and vibrant as well! Times are good, unemployment is down, and I am sure you are all working more hours than ever. The economy is very strong, and it is projected to be very steady in 2019 as well. I hope you are all riding the wave vigorously and trying diligently to improve the clarity of your respective brand from CEO to the front line just like our last Keynote Speaker, Gerry O’Brion, indicated to us all in the August meeting.

Even though business is good, I wanted to remind you of the holiday season that is fast approaching us all. These times are opportunities to reflect on family and what is really important in our respective lives. I urge each of you to think of something relating to your family that makes you smile. You are all probably SMILING right now! (I hope so.) Keep doing it and take the time to remember those who are struggling or are less fortunate. Help make your Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays ones to remember for years!

In closing, I hope you all are setting your sights on the next PPC meeting that will be held in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona from March 3 rd -5 th , 2019. This will be an awesome venue to network with old friends and those that are new to the industry as well. The strong relationships that are built in this type of environment is what has helped make the PPC the exuberant organization it is today. So, mark your calendars now and come join us for a power-packed event.

Best Regards,
From Your PPC President
Darren Booth
