Monica Preston, Communications Director

Chances are you are in the throws of the holidays. Whether you are in the industries of retail, hospitality, service or financial, customers are coming to you or in your doors. The reality is that after around the 15th of the December, most industries start to slow down and traffic drops off. If you haven't already done so, now is a great time to start focusing on your business goals for 2019. Here are 8 tips to get you ready to start 2019 off with a solid strategy:


December Regular Mixer

Not only do we have our special Mixer to launch our new health plan available to working owners, but we have our regular mixer at the Christmas House on December 12! Check out the details on our Facebook event page!

We are so excited for the next launch of our Association Health Plans specifically tailored for our working owner businesses!

These plans cover small businesses with 1-50 employees, 1099 and sole proprietor business owners. We will have business leaders from United Healthcare here to speak to the insurance program as a whole. Feel free and bring a business owner friend and enjoy great networking, appetizers and a ton of information to help save you and your business money in the healthcare arena!

Check out this informative video which will help answer some of your questions prior to the event. (or have you ready to ask new ones!)
