Myrtle Monday — What I've Learned from Myrtle's Postcards

By Posted in - Counselors Academy & The Clairemont Team on May 23rd, 2011


A gigantic thank you to my fellow PRSA Counselors Academy members who recently attended my session during the group’s annual conference. What an honor to get to share with fellow agency owners and leaders what I’ve learned about communications from more than 80 postcards sent to a woman named Myrtle over the span of 50 years.


If you weren’t at the conference and would like to hear more about the magical Myrtle journey and what I’ve learned about promise, potential and people from the postcards, please email me at

    Thank YOU for sharing Myrtle’s postcards with us. Many attendees of your session agreed that it was one of the highlights of the conference. Quite different from many breakouts. You took us on a journey and taught us some important lessons on the way. I’m glad I was along for the ride!

      Thanks, Ken. This warms my heart! It means so much to me that you were there for it. I can’t wait to share updates at next year’s conference because the Myrtle story just keeps evolving! xoxox –D
