In Honor Of Our Veterans…

On Monday, November 12 (day of observation) Cornerstone will once again pay special tribute to the men and women who so bravely devoted their time to serve in the armed forces. November 11th is a day dedicated to those individuals and a time for us to recognize their sacrifices. In honor of Veterans Day, please take some time to remember that it is because of our veterans that we all enjoy the freedom to express ourselves and the unlimited opportunities for which this country stands. Please pause to recall the sacrifices that our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen have and will continue to make, serving our Nation where and whenever they have been called. Their service deserves acknowledgement. These courageous and brave individuals have forgone family life, private sector careers, and for many, sacrificed their lives, willingly taking on the greatest responsibility of upholding our freedom. They have voluntarily joined the ranks of America’s Armed Forces, fully aware of their obligations as citizens and the risks they are taking to stand for what our country believes in and founded upon.

Through their courageous and unquestioned sacrifices, they have secured for millions the blessings of freedom, democracy, and unmatched opportunity that we enjoy in the United States today.

Please take the time to PERSONALLY thank these special folks and those who are a part of your lives. They deserve our respect and recognition.

We have chosen to give our Cornerstone Veterans ½ day off on Monday November 12th to show our appreciation corporately.
Thank you to our employees, Eric Pouncy Sr. and Hal Demmerle, as well as our families for making this sacrifice. We are grateful to you for allowing us to continue to live in a thriving, peaceful, FREE country.

Have a safe Veterans Day, and as always, God bless the United States of America.

Seniors Being Targeted in New Medicare Scam

According to Butler County prosecutor Mike Gmoser, April has been designated as Prosecutor’s Senior Awareness Month.

New Medicare cards will be issued beginning April of 2018 and will no longer include the recipient’s Social Security number. Gmoser warns those with Medicare ID cards to watch out for phone calls asking them to verify their old number, which is their Social Security number. Scammers are also likely to ask for money so they can expedite the transfer of the new card so it doesn’t interrupt health care needs.

Gmoser said the new Medicare cards will always come by mail, and you will never get a call from Medicare or Social Security regarding your new number.

5 Tips For Managing Stress This Enrollment Season

The enrollment season is the busiest, and most stressful, time of the year. It’s easy to get caught up in your inbox, your voicemails, paperwork, and more, especially with deadlines looming closer. However, in order to properly take care of your clients and stay on top of a heavy workload, it’s important to manage your stress.

Keep yourself mentally and physically at the top of your game by following any of the stress management tips below:

  1. Recognize signs of stress and your stressors. Does tackling the mountain of papers on your desk feel like an inconceivable task? Is your desk too disorganized to focus on much else? Are you lacking the tools necessary to help you through the busy season? Take a minute to identify and tackle your stressors so you can learn how to properly manage them.
  2. Set your major priorities at the beginning of the day, leaving room for emergencies. It’s difficult to avoid multitasking with a heavy workload. You find yourself answering emails while trying to accomplish 50 other tasks at the same time. At the beginning of the day, set between 3–5 priorities that you need to accomplish, be it a call to a client, answering an important email, focusing on marketing, etc. But be sure to leave some room for emergencies that may pop up throughout the day. Priorities will sometimes shift, so you want to prepare yourself to manage new priorities as they come along.
  3. Don’t be afraid to take a break. An article from The Atlantic stressed the importance of walking away from your desk throughout the day. The article referenced a study by the DeskTime productivity app which concluded that higher performer workers in the study would work for an average of 52 minutes, followed by a 17-minute break, often away from the computer. This means taking a short walk around the office, speaking with a coworker, stretching, getting a cup of coffee, etc.
  4. Take care of yourself. Get rid of that 3 pm fatigue! Even on your busiest days, be sure that you are eating the proper amount of nutrient-dense foods, focus on gaining as much rest as possible, and remain active. When your body is at its peak, it will run more efficiently to get the job done.
  5. Use the resources and materials available to you. Cornerstone has a number of online resources that are specifically designed to streamline and maximize the efficiency of your business. Check these out here.

In Honor of Our Veterans

On Saturday, we pay special tribute to the brave men and women who have devoted their time to serve in the armed forces. November 11th is a day dedicated to those who should be honored. In honor of Veterans Day, please take some time to remember that it is because of our veterans that we enjoy the freedom to express ourselves. Please pause to recall the sacrifices that our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen have and will continue to make, serving our Nation where and whenever they have been called upon. Their service deserves acknowledgment. These courageous and brave individuals have sacrificed family life, careers, and for many, their own lives, willingly taking on the greatest responsibility of upholding our freedom. They have voluntarily joined the ranks of America’s Armed Forces, fully aware of their obligations as citizens and the risks they are to take in order to stand for what our country believes in and what it was founded upon. They sacrifice with courage and unquestioned commitment for each of us, enabling us the opportunity to fulfill our dreams in a country in which we are proud to represent.

Through their sacrifices, they have secured for millions of others the blessings of freedom, democracy, and the unmatched opportunity that we enjoy in the United States today.

Please PERSONALLY thank these special folks. Some of Cornerstone’s employees, Eric Pouncy and Hal Demmerle, have voluntarily joined the ranks of America’s Armed Forces, fully knowing the risks that they are taking to fight for our country. Many more have family members currently serving or who have served in the past, and they deserve to be recognized and respected.

We have chosen to give our Cornerstone Veterans ½ day off on Friday November 10th to show our appreciation corporately.

Thank you to our employees and families for making this sacrifice.  We are grateful to you for allowing us to continue to live in a thriving, peaceful, FREE country. Have a safe Veterans Day, and as always, God bless the United States of America.
