WMBA President’s Message  February 2020

February is here! It’s the month of love, and what I want to know is, what do you love about your business? I feel super blessed every day I go to work and do what I love, which is helping people get out of pain naturally, with pain pills, injections or surgeries so that they can get back to doing the activities they love doing.

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you. “ 
Maya Angelou

BUSINESS ADVOCACY

We want to get businesses connected with the city so we can work together to ensure our success. One of the best ways to do this is to attend the City Commission Meetings which are held the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 pm. This month that would be Jan. 14th and Jan. 28th. There are some important items coming up in zoning, density and height as well as codes that would allow a hotel on community facility zoned sites (Hagen Park parking lot).

Thank you all for being a part of WMBA!  It’s my honor and pleasure to be of service to this amazing organization!  I look forward to seeing each of you at our next 2 events.  Please bring a friend.  There’s always room for one more at a WMBA event!
