Director's Message: A "UOR" state of mind

July 27, 2007
A few tips for those heading to Washington next week.

Next week, more than 900 oral health professionals and corporate supporters will convene in Washington, D.C., to expand their professional development and understanding of the world we want to influence during the RDH Under One Roof conference. We will laugh, we will cry, and we will become inspired to think differently as we take action to move our hygiene careers to a higher level.

Here are a few reminders before your begin your journey:

• Be in the "yes," not "yeah, but…" crowd.

• What you think with feeling manifests physically from your core.

• Your reality is a result of your vision.

• Change will not transform. Growth comes from the inside out; transformation comes from the outside in.

• Marketing is a game, and the purpose of that game is to turn strangers into prospects, buyers, and clients.

What is your purpose? What legacy do you want to leave?

Travel safely, and l look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!
