Dear WMBA Members,
It’s March already – The end of Q1 and what have you accomplished? We are measured in this business by our accomplishments, goals, metrics, volume.
For many years I have had a New Year’s Resolution or business plan designed to accomplish my business and personal goals. With the advent of the pandemic, my focus has shifted and I’m sure that yours has too. What is most important to you now? This year my resolution is one immeasurable word that defines everything that I do. Meaningful. Are my efforts and actions meaningful and generating what I want to accomplish in 2021? A simple easy stake in the ground, a milepost on the map of my journey, a measurement for the work that I am doing every day.
With the shift and change we have experienced with 2020, I believe that we can all make a meaningful difference for our industry. We can and should be looking for ways to give back, now more than ever. With the new administration, the economy uncertainty, the unpredictable nature of our world, we need to support our industry. We will all benefit by contributing to our industry. Supporting WMBA is an example of how you can serve and give back.
Your membership in the WMBA is a meaningful act of service. It is a demonstration of your willingness to believe in something bigger than what you can do alone. And WMBA is an model of the power of unity in joining a community to make a difference.
