Good Morning & Happy New Year to You!
Since we are always looking to bring you new and interesting ideas and tidbits in our weekly newsletter, we thought we’d start the year off right by talking about an incredible way to make a difference in the lives of others. Here’s a little story to get you started…(we made it up but hopefully you get the gist):
"I decided to make a change in my New Year’s resolution for 2017. Most of my friends and family make similar resolutions, liking hitting the gym or saving more money, but I wanted to take it a step further by making a change that can help someone else. I was reading online the other day that January is “National Mentoring Month”.
Although I like to think that my life is going pretty smoothly, I know that there are other people out there, many of them kids, who don’t have as good of a life as I do. So, I thought “Maybe I can spend a couple of hours a week helping some kids out”.
How should I go about doing this? And how much will I really be helping others? Hopefully, once I get started, I’ll start to see the great benefits this can have and persuade others to do the same."
Are you looking for ways to mentor, give back and connect with kids in need? January is the perfect month to get started and we thought we would share a few tips about the importance of mentoring and a couple places couple places you can get started!

And again...we want to wish you a Happy New Year!
