The Chairman's Corner
by Jay Casey
I hope everyone enjoyed the Christmas holiday as well as bringing in the new year with style. It was nice to have some extra time to spend with family and friends. It was also a great time to reflect on 2014 and gear up for the 2015.
I enjoyed the month of January; everyone seems to be pumped up and ready to tackle the new year. Routinely, this is the month where we all set new year’s resolutions. They may be personal like losing 30 pounds or running a marathon. Maybe, your resolutions have included your business. It could be you are buying another moving company or adding new business lines. If your goal is going to the gym three times a week, wait until February. The jackwagons will be gone and you will actually be able to use the equipment!
I believe in setting reachable goals or changing behavior for the betterment of family, community and business. I encourage all of you to set your sights on something achievable. We all have an opportunity to get re-engaged and do some awesome things. Look back at our path in 2014. Sure, it was a good year for our industry, but what can we do in 2015 to make it a defining, exceptional year? Sometimes, we find it easy to dismiss our involvement because “it won’t make a difference.” Well, guess what? You do make a difference!
Please keep your eye out for CMSA’s upcoming Legislative Day in March. We would like to see you there to help spread our message. And, if you haven’t already met the folks who represent you in Sacramento, it will be an opportunity to do so.
