5 ways to get the most out of the Medicare Connections Conference

It's that time of year again! Summer is winding down (say it ain't so!) and football season… I mean, Fall… is right around the corner. It's the time of year to put all those Medicare certification hours to use! That's right, you know what I'm talking about.

The Dangers of Complacency

My father used to tell me, "Good enough is not good enough." I can't say my dad is much of a philosopher, and as a lazy kid I will admit I heard what he said but didn't really know what it meant. Now, as an adult, I understand that he was saying, if you think you're good enough, think again, because there is always someone that will outwork and out hustle you. Don't get complacent.
