Happy New Year! People often ask me what is the benefit of putting an announcement in this column? The first and most important reason is to share your contact information with the industry. The other reason is that you can show your parents, children, siblings or anyone else your name in print! I have had feedback parents are quite impressed. If you have a new baby, a birth announcement with a picture is a great memento for a baby book. So this is my sales job for the year!
