PROGRAM:   Kathie Seedroff, MAC, CPIA. Simplified Interiors.

The program today was on how to simplify your life through the elimination of clutter. Kathy spoke on how she learned from her mother that life is about intangibles, not material things. The baby boom generation is approaching retirement age and their focus is now on preparing for travel and fun rather then the management of a lot of stuff. Because of this, clutter management is now becoming a movement, rather then just a small trend.

For more information please visit Kathie's website at or call her at 303-779-4717. She is available for classes, consultations and clutter clearing.

Corporate Lesson 1:
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.
The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to drop that towel,"
After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves.
The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, "Who was that?"
"It was Bob the next door neighbor," she replies. "Great!" the husband says, "did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?"

Moral of the story:
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.
