nitially, I was a little nervous about our feature on the offices of Scottsdale executives. The idea was to convince a few leading local businesspeople to let us photograph them in their professional digs, then ask them questions about the stuff in their office. But what if the stuff in the office turned out to be boring? I’d have no way of knowing beforehand. I’d be going in blind and couldn’t very well say, “I’m sorry, Mr. CEO, but the saga of your wireless keyboard simply doesn’t pass muster. Thanks anyway, and please water that philodendron.” I needn’t have worried. Roaming around the inner sanctums of such illustrious outfits as ICE, Mayo Clinic and Republic Services was a fascinating experience—and more fun than Disneyland, because I was free to ask about anything within eyeshot, and to do so with the abandon of a 4-year-old who knows no boundaries. “What’s this?” I’d ask, picking up a glass memento and leaving fingerprints all over it. “Who’s that?” I’d pry, stabbing a finger at a baby picture. “Where’d you get this? What kind of pen is that? Is that a gift? Why don’t you have a live philodendron? What’s that in your cup? What did you just put in your trashcan? WHO ARE YOU WEARING?” Uh, I was out of control. The Hollywood paparazzi are currently headhunting me. The great thing, though, is unlike a tabloid reporter ’s results, all of my execs answered every question, with good humor, patience and an easy honesty. Sue me (don’t sue me), but I think you’ll find the profiles entertaining and enlightening peeks into some of your most accomplished business neighbors. Gotta go. Joan Rivers is calling.

Tom Smith Leaves TASER to Pursue Aviation Concept TASER International Inc. announced that co– founder and Chairman Tom Smith is retiring from the Board of Directors to join a new start-up in the aviation industry in Scottsdale, as CEO and co–founder, as well as pursue opportunities to join other boards. Smith founded TASER International in 1993 together with his brother Rick Smith, CEO. During the past 19 years, Smith has served as chief operating officer, president and chairman. “I felt it best to retire from my responsibilities at TASER International to fully dedicate myself to my new venture,” says Smith. “I have been a pilot for more than 25 years, and when I saw the opportunity to merge my love of aviation with my love of entrepreneurship, I knew the time had come for me to retire from the company I have spent almost 20 years building, and to dedicate myself to starting something new.” Smith declined to reveal more about his concept, citing the competitive nature of the aviation industry. Michael Garnreiter has been selected as new chairman. Smith will continue to ensure a smooth transition of international sales as a consultant through April 2013. Attendance at the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show, which ran Feb. 16-26 at WestWorld, was on track to beat records as of press time.

Jan. 30, 2012 Dear Editor,   I usually live in Scottsdale and I’ve been an occasional reader of the Airpark News for several years. I’m currently working for the United States Antarctic Program, working at McMurdo Station in Antarctica. I was eating breakfast this morning and just happen to glance over and see “Airpark News.” I thought there was no way, so I went and picked it up, and sure enough it was the December 2011 edition of the Airpark News!   I’ve been missing home, so it was really cool to see a little something from home. I’m really looking forward to getting off work so I can go back to my room, flip through it, and see some pictures from around Scottsdale. I’m sure you guys are always wondering about your distribution and readership. Well there aren’t too many places further away from Scottsdale than Antarctica. So I’d say you’ve reached pretty far and wide. :)   Thanks, Rickie Foshee

p ce a S We tour the offices of top Scottsdale execs By Kimberly Hundley

For this issue, we met with five top Scottsdale execs in their native habitats: the office, that inner sanctum where deals go down and creativity crackles. We asked them to tell us about the flotsam and jetsam that populates their work space—no knickknack or family photo was off limits. And while we were there, we got the scoop on what’s in their company pipeline for 2012.

Donald W. Slager President/CEO/Director Republic Services Inc. 18500 N. Allied Way, Phoenix


he only Fortune 500 company in the Scottsdale Airpark—and one of only seven in the state of Arizona—No. 296-ranked Republic Services is in the business of solid waste collection. Donald Slager took over the helm about a year ago, not long after Republic merged with Allied Waste, where he’d served as president. The Chicago native, bristling with grounded energy, says his father and brothers were in the garbage business when he was a kid. “It gets in your blood,” he says. “I fell in love with it and the people. It’s good, honorable work, and we provide a necessary service.” After a few years of working in the ranks as truck washer, driver, mechanic, sales rep, etc., Slager set his sites on a GM position and kept rising in the industry. These days, Slager splits his time between strategic planning at his glass-walled office at Republic Services headquarters, conducting reviews out in the field and traveling to meet investors and financiers. The Republic brand isn’t as familiar to consumers as Waste Management—or “those other guys,” as Slager calls them—but in five to 10 years, look for that to change. The $8 billion company, which was built on acquisitions operating under independent names, is on a mission to emphasize its corporate identity under one flag: the big red star comprised of five R’s. Slager says that in 2012, Republic Services will also focus on enhancing web capability for customers, doing more business with large national chains, and refining a new maintenance program for its 15,000-truck fleet.

They learn how to hunt prey as their environment changes, and they hunt in family units. I like what they stand for. I think in business I’d like to be more like an orca.” 2. Photo of Slager’s wife, Kimberlee: “I met her when I was 3 years old. We lived across the street from each other back in the old neighborhood [in Chicago]. We’re 29 years married, and had our first grandchild last Friday night. She takes good care of me.” 3. Globe [one of 3 in office]: “I have a thing for the planet … We are evolving as the waste stream evolves, and this is a reminder to me that we need to be environmentally responsible.” 4.

We do a good job now of looking beyond the horizon; while we have a sense of urgency to move forward and improve, we don’t have a sense of emergency. I surround myself with really good people.” 6.

had Verdaglio was in the early stages of training for his private pilot’s license in Flagstaff when his instructor had to make an emergency landing of their aircraft due to a maintenance issue. “After that, I looked for the absolute best place to train, and that’s how I found Sawyer,” says Verdaglio, who has since earned the highest-possible rating as both pilot and instructor. Eventually, Verdaglio bought Sawyer Aviation, one of the oldest flight-training academies in Arizona. With 6,000-plus alum, some of Sawyer’s graduates have gone on to become captains of Air Force One. The company also has operations in jet-aircraft charter, sales, aircraftacquisition consulting, and aircraft management. Sawyer is launching new light jets for charter later this year, as well as continuing to promote its Vegas specials and popular destinations. What would Verdaglio like his Airpark business neighbors to know about Sawyer? “Traveling on a private-charter aircraft is more accessible and more affordable than you think, and more enjoyable than you ever imagined,” he says. “Also, we’re No. 1 in the world for introductory flight gift certificates.”

Wyatt Decker VP & CEO Mayo Clinic in Arizona 13400 N. Shea Blvd., Scottsdale




hen Wyatt Decker, M.D., was named Mayo Clinic vice president and CEO in Arizona last spring, the California native considered the transition from the clinic’s main campus in Minnesota something of a homecoming. “I love Arizona’s Western heritage. When I was 16 to 20, I worked on cattle ranches in Montana and Wyoming,” says Decker, whose family brought their six horses with them when they moved to Scottsdale. At the Minnesota campus, Decker oversaw leadership development and hiring; now in addition to overseeing Arizona operations, he helps to strategically plan for the future of Mayo Clinic. “And it’s great stuff: What will the practice of medicine look like in five, 10, 15 years from now?” Patients accessing doctors via smart phones, and computer software that answers health questions are continued on page 20

Space Nonprofits aren’t known for their expansive offices, but Dr. Decker’s office at Mayo’s outpatient campus on North Shea Boulevard is still a bit tight for a CEO. He opted for the modest first-floor accommodations because of the mountain views and French doors that open onto a patio. “Whenever I can, I leave the doors open and sit outside,” says the former ranch hand. “One of the hardest things about a career in medicine is I haven’t been able to be out of doors as much as I’d like.”

continued from page 19 just two of many emerging scenarios. Decker, an ER doctor, also makes time to see patients once or twice a month at the Mayo Clinic Hospital, west of the Shea outpatient clinic, on Mayo Boulevard near the Airpark. “I love emergency medicine. It’s one of my great passions,” he says.

“You never know what’s going to come next.” Major projects underway at Mayo include the development of a $266 million medical-school branch at the Shea campus, and a proton-beam center for treating cancer at the Phoenix hospital. Head Space continues on page 24

fter the 2011 numbers were crunched, it was official: Nextiva more than doubled its number of business VoIP communication clients for the third year in a row. “The fundamental pillar for this business is amazing service,” says Yaniv Masjedi, Nextiva vice president. “Small businesses are so used to dealing with the local phone company and being nickled and dimed. I think we’ve all experienced that with our local cell phone bills.” When customers call Nextiva, they always reach a live person to answer questions. Masjedi also believes in random acts of consideration for clients—sending gifts, calling proactively to see how things are going. “We’re proud of the technology itself. It’s very powerful,” Masjedi says, pointing to Nextiva’s trove of 30 independent technology and telephony awards, including “Product of the Year” honors from Internet Telephony for four years running. “We offer features that, if you didn’t go with Nextiva, would cost tens of thousands of dollars and require an onsite IT person.” To keep up with growth, Nextiva doubled its workforce in 2011 and plans to hire another 100 before year’s end.

The company, which recently outgrew its headquarters in North Scottsdale and moved to spacious digs on Chaparral Road, also garnered a major “Best Place to Work” award. Employees are treated to breakfast options daily and lunch delivery from various restaurants on Fridays. The break room is home to ping-pong and pool tables as well as a whiteboard wall, where team members are encouraged to share motivational quotes. The entire office has an edgy, creative vibe: graffiti-art flourishes on the walls, concrete and wood floors, glass walls. Masjedi is one of several executives at Nextiva who keeps Kosher, and he believes theirs may be the only company in Arizona with an onsite Kosher kitchen. Masjedi joined Nextiva’s parent outfit, Unitedweb, in 2004. The UCLA graduate is working on getting his private pilot’s license and can often be found playing hoop at the Village at Gainey, where he’s regarded as the best techexecutive basketball player in the state. In 2012, he says, Nextiva plans to introduce several new VoIP communication products and services ideal for businesses with one to 25 employees. “We’re really trying to transform the way small businesses communicate.” Head Space continues on page 26

Marcia Rowley

Co-Founder & Chief Marketing Officer International Cruise & Excursions Inc. (ICE) 15501 N. Dial Boulevard, Scottsdale


he interior of Dial Corp.’s former R&D building looks strikingly similar to a cruise ship. It’s massive and deep, with multiple staircases and landings, and long hallways opening into lofty spaces. As soon as Marcia Rowley, cofounder of International Cruise & Excursions, toured the Airpark property two years ago, she knew she’d found a new home for her then-$350 million company, known as ICE. “I bet some people wonder what the heck we are doing over here,” says Rowley, acknowledging the acronym ICE on the building just across from Scottsdale Quarter doesn’t give much away. What Rowley and her husband, John, are doing is leading a team of 1,200 employees worldwide—850 at the Scottsdale headquarters—in leveraging the power of vacations

and leisure to drive the business objectives of partner companies. “I think there are a lot of nearby businesses that could benefit from what we offer if they knew what we did. We do a lot of sales incentive programs, for example,” says Rowley. “We’re really a technology and marketing company that has a tremendous amount of leisure assets.” The Rowleys inspiration for ICE was born from frustration in 1997 when the couple was unable to trade their personal vacation-ownership week toward a cruise vacation. The experience told them the vacation marketplace and millions of travelers worldwide were missing key options. Growth has been impressive by any standard. In 2010, ICE reported a nearly 17 percent jump in gross revenues over the prior year. Rowley hasn’t calculated exactly


how much that number blossomed again last year—at least by 20 percent. When so many businesses are struggling, how does ICE achieve double-digit growth? “I’m really so proud of everybody in our company, including the core group of management that is dedicated to innovating and coming up with the next big thing,” Rowley says. “We take such pride in everything they do. It’s like they feel it’s their company too, and when you act that way, good things happen.” The Rowleys have a grueling travel schedule, but appreciate returning to a home base in the Airpark, just a few miles from their residence in North Scottsdale. “We love it here,” says Rowley, who appropriately has a view of the Scottsdale Airport control tower from her office. “It’s honestly too good to be true.”

The 850-plus people based at its Scottsdale Airpark headquarters enjoy such perks as an onsite cafeteria, medical center, masseuse, workout center, Internet café lounges, dry-cleaning services and an entertainment concierge. “We’re not recycling dollars—we’re bringing a lot of revenue into Arizona, and spending it right across the street,” says Rowley.

Business Helps a Garden


G ro w at Gateway Academy

ateway Academy, a private K-12 school in Scottsdale for students with High-Functioning Autism and Aspergers Syndrome, will have a dream garden, thanks to the support of local businesses. Joseph Gundara, Scottsdale’s Home Depot’s community service director, spearheaded the Gateway Academy Garden project. Whitney Farms Organic Potting & Container Soil, Scotts Miracle Gro, and Fry’s grocery store made charitable donations. “We take great pride in awarding this garden to Gateway Academy,” said Gundara. “It is an honor to provide a beautiful garden to a private special–education school and work with these incredible students through our professional associations.” Recently the students of Gateway Academy, at 9659 N. Hayden Road, enjoyed working alongside the landscaping professionals to experience all that planting has to offer—manicuring the soil, plotting the plants, and watering seeds for lettuce, artichokes, strawberries, tomatoes, and herbs. The school garden will bring new opportunities to Gateway’s horticulture program as well as cross-curricular learning for the entire school. According to executive director, O. Robin Sweet, “It is going to be a wonderful and exciting way to make school subjects more interesting and meaningful to students. Our hope is that the garden will create an environment that allows for creative thought, active learning, and interpersonal skills.” This Gateway garden also will give students the chance to interact, helping them to better develop interpersonal

social skills and work cooperatively with each other outside of the classroom setting. The value of interpersonal relationships is something that Gateway constantly strives to instill in the students, who struggle greatly with socializing and communication, according to Sweet. “Our hope is that caring for this garden will teach our students the importance of responsibility and accountability,” she said “The learning opportunities are endless and the garden is going to be an integral part of our multi-sensory learning model.” 

Gandara first partnered with Sweet when developing a garden for Spectrum College Transition Program, a residential post–secondary transition program for students with Asperger’s Syndrome. The garden has been a huge success for Spectrum, and the Gateway Academy Horticulture Garden is on track to be one as well. More:

From ‘Woo-Woo’ to Woo-Hoo Getting healthy the Envoque MD way By Dianne Price Photos by Scott Lawler,


ome to Scottsdale and you’ll quickly find that you’ve landed in the “Valley of the Dolls.” Manly men and glossy gals populate this place like geckos. There are probably more salons, spas and wellness centers in our 184-mile radius than in the entire state of Utah. Everyone wants to look better, feel better, run faster and jump higher, but how to navigate the demands to strip your fat, tone your face, increase your libido or decrease your depression? To Jacqueline Olson, founder of Envoque MD, health and well-being is not a matter of taking things away; it’s a matter of living a life of abundance. It was Olson’s own journey that propelled her to create Envoque MD as a solution for others. The statuesque and striking mother of eight endured the death of a child five years ago. Reading, prayer and using Emotional Freedom Technique helped her maintain her sense of balance. She looked inside and out for answers. She began to do research, collect her thoughts and hold workshops intended to help others embrace the power of abundance. Before long, nearly 70 women each week were showing up at her home to learn more. “Lives were changing, and I knew this was my calling,” she says. For Olson, the bottom line was the impossibility of being happy when her life was influenced by fear, anger and selfishness. “People are so driven by fear it affects everything, down to the cellular level,” she says. After the death of their daughter, her husband was feeling considerable stress and gained what Olson describes as “an incredible amount of weight.” Almost accidentally, she nabbed a book at the end-cap of a display about hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) as a method of weight loss.

Jacqueline Olson and Jana Ashcraft, co-owners of Envoque

• Jacqueline Olson is founder of Envoque MD; Jana Ashcraft became her business partner in 2012. • Envoque MD’s wellness team includes a naturopathic medical doctor and a certified nutritionist/physiologist. • The Scottsdale office, at 10155 E. Via Linda near Scottsdale Ranch, debuted in January 2012. The Mesa location opened April 2008. • Free consultations are available.

She brought the book home and left it on a table for her husband to read. He took a look and asked his wife for her support on his quest for health. “When he told me more about the book, I thought, ‘Are you serious? Who can exist on 500 calories a day?’ Regardless, I had promised to help him and our journey began,” she says.

Weight Loss as Happiness Gateway

Not everyone needs to lose weight, but according to Olson, discomfort with weight is often the lever people need to begin taking care of themselves. Weight gain speeds aging, saps energy and increases the possibility of illness. “Although the idea of hCG made sense to us, what didn’t make sense was the mandate of a 500-calorie a day diet,” she says. With the help of a nutritionist, Olson developed a less extreme approach to eating. With the help of a physiologist, they integrated compatible exercise. The happy ending here is that Jacqueline’s husband lost 60 pounds. “I had my husband back,” she says.

Jacqueline Olson’s reading list includes: Molecules of Emotion: The Science Behind Mindbody Medicine by Candace Pert, Ph.D. Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d by Candace Pert, Ph.D. The Biology of Belief: Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles by Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. Killing Sacred Cows by Garrett Gunderson with Stephen Palmer

Together, they were motivated to make the remedy available to others. Olson is vivid in her explanation that under-thetongue and homeopathic remedies are not the answer. In the past several years, the FDA has begun shutting down the manufacturers of homeopathic hCG. She contends that the only healthy way to benefit from hCG is through a supervised program of injections of medical-grade hCG.

The Art of Personalized Wellness

Nearly, 5,000 clients later, Envoque MD has two locations and a three-step program that addresses essential components of an individual’s health, beginning with a scientific measurement of body composition. “With the use of a technology called iDXA, we are able to measure bone mass and lean and fatty tissue mass,” Olson explains. “The iDXA scan gives us a roadmap that helps us tailor solutions that work specifically for each client.” Maximal oxygen consumption (or VO2 max) is also measured throughout the program. Understanding how a person’s body uses oxygen is a strong indicator of physical fitness. Both of these measures are often used for Olympic and other elite athletes. The Envoque MD approach to health and weight loss includes three phases: 1) measurement, 2) monitoring and intervention, and 3) maintenance. Although duration depends on each client’s needs, the personal support team remains available as needed, sometimes for nearly a year. Envoque MD also offers bio-identical hormone replacement. Jacqueline Olson, who estimates Envoque MD’s success rate at 95 percent, continues to hold classes and espouse the benefits of Emotional Freedom Technique. “We believe that the body is meant to create vitality and strength, she says. “We believe that everyone is capable of being healthy, and we believe we’ve developed an environment of encouragement.” 

Scottsdale’s History of Animal Attraction

 When founder/namesake Chaplain Winfield Scott retired to Scottsdale from his last U.S. Army posting at Fort Huachuca, he brought along a “retired” Army mule, Old Maude. The mule, like Scott himself, was a wounded war veteran, having taken a bullet in the leg during the A p a c h e Wa r s . S c o t t would give Scottsdale children a chance to sit atop Old Maude during the settlement’s early events. He also had Scottsdale’s first artist, Marjorie Thomas, paint the town’s beloved mascot; her oil painting is displayed at the Scottsdale Historical Museum and is part of the Scottsdale Public

Last Scottsdale Historian month, thousands attended the All Arabian Horse Show, which has been held in Scottsdale annually since 1956; this March, WestWorld is the site for the 9th annual Fiesta Cluster Dog Show, where thousands of canines will compete in the largest such show in the Southwest. Has Scottsdale always had an affinity toward its animals? Just take a look:

In 2007, a community-based effort raised money to have the late George Ann Tognoni sculpt a likeness of Scott, his wife, Helen, and Old Maude in bronze, which welcomes visitors to the west side of Scottsdale Civic Center Mall.  Scottsdale High School opened in 1923, and needed a mascot and team name. The beaver was chosen since the animals lived in irrigation canals and laterals throughout the Valley. Some old-timers clarify that those canal creatures were actually muskrats, but that didn’t seem quite appropriate for a team name. Alumni of the school, which closed in 1983, still gather to celebrate being “Beavers Forever!”  During the 1930s, Al Lieber, whose family built a home on Main Street that now houses the Old Town Tortilla Factory, had two pet dachshunds, Hansel and Gretel. Al carted the doxies and their puppies around the unpaved streets of his tiny town in a red wagon. Hans II learned how to open the family’s screen door with a stick in his mouth, according to Lieber ’s memoirs, Road to Scottsdale. continued on page 34

 Scottsdale native son Bill wrote in his “Recollections of Early Scottsdale” that nearly every kid in 1930s Scottsdale had a pet horse they doted on, particularly because it was their main mode of transportation. His horse, a bay mare named Pet, cost him $15 and her saddle another $35. He and other grammar and high school students rode their horses to school, on desert adventures as far north as E.E. Brown’s D.C. Ranch, and to go hunting in the “slough,” which was the Indian Bend Wash.  The Camelback Inn adopted a white mule as its mascot, naming it “Snowball,” and taking it as a goodwill ambassador to local events and those in other cities during the 1950s and 1960s. Snowball wore a blanket proclaiming to be “The World’s Most Celebrated Jack Ass.” During a 1951 fashion show held on a runway the length of Main Street, Snowball was dyed pink to match the season’s hot color and theme of the show, “Sunset Pinks."

 Scottsdale-based philanthropist Robert Maytag, who had a lifelong interest in animals of all kinds, talked with his wife, Nancy, about what he should do when they returned from a fishing trip to the Virgin Islands in spring 1961. The answer: establish a zoo! After much excited discussion, they came home to Scottsdale, invited a group of friends for cocktails, ran the zoo idea by them, and within weeks, the nonprofit Arizona Zoological Society formed, meeting at the Maytag home. While the zoo was germinating, Maytag began accumulating animals, which took up residence in the backyard of the Maytag home—long before Paradise Valley’s legendary zoning restrictions were enacted. Maytag’s widow Nancy recalled only one negative incident: an unsuccessful drive-by shooting. She also fondly remembered hosting “two zebras, a woolly monkey, the lowland gorillas Hazel and Mongo, a small elephant named Heffalump, a gibbon monkey and lots of birds.” To promote the zoo, Bob took his animals to cocktail and dinner parties, and delighted the students at nearby Kiva Elementary School with visits. Heffalump and Beau Brummell (the woolly monkey) became Valley celebrities.

 Mayor Herb Drinkwater is memorialized with his beloved dog Sadie in a bronze sculpture near Scottsdale City Hall. The man and dog tribute, funded with private donations, was created by C l y d e R o s s M o rg a n , a n d dedicated in 2003.

 The 13th Tactical Fighter Squadron, based at Udorn Royal Thai Air Force Base d u r i n g t h e Vi e t n a m Wa r, adopted a black jaguar as its mascot. When the war ended in 1973, the aviators made arrangements to have “Eldridge” shipped to the Phoenix Zoo, where they funded his room and board until his death.

Why You Should Go for IRAs


efore you gather up your tax documents and meet with your accountant this season, consider making a contribution to your retirement account. For 2011 and 2012, individuals can contribute up to $5,000 into a traditional IRA or Roth IRA. Those 50 or older can make an additional $1,000 contribution. A Roth IRA account grows tax deferred and By Gavin Tolan, contributors do not received a tax deducWilliams Financial tion for the contribution. What they do Group get is tax-free withdrawals. For traditional IRAs, investors might be eligible for a deduction on their contribution based on their income and the assets grow tax deferred until they are withdrawn, usually not before age 59½. For a full explanation on all the rules and income limits on Individual Retirement Arraignments, visit www.ira. gov, section 590. While you may not qualify for a tax break on your contribution


due to income limitations, there are several other benefits that far outweigh the deduction. First and foremost is the opportunity to save money in a tax-deferred account until you’re at least 59½. With the stiff 10 percent penalty the IRS imposes on premature withdrawls coupled with the distribution considered income in the year it is taken, it really stings if you take these monies early. So contributing to these types of accounts is one way to work toward having some money to help you through your retirement years. Another important feature of these accounts is the ability to access financial markets in an attempt to grow your nest egg. While there are no guarantees that your money will grow, we do know that it’s hard to grow your assets when you’re receiving a return that is less than the inflation rate. Above all, the compounding of gains is one of the keys to building wealth, in my opinion. There can be many winning trades stacked on top of each other without having to be concerned about holding periods or taxation. These retirement accounts provide a good environment for building retirement savings.

Use this time to get in front of your workplace and personal retirement accounts (and all investment accounts for that matter) and do some spring cleaning. Revisit your financial plans and see where you need to tweak your holdings. Maybe now is the time to shift to stocks; maybe you’re ahead of pace and can tone down the risk.

Stock Market Update

I spoke last month about my positive outlook for equities. Since then, many U.S. stocks are hitting multi-year highs. The S&P 500 Index is pushing up against its highs from last May and has been moving up seemingly every day. With earnings season coming to an end, I would be surprised to see this market jump higher over the next few weeks. Actually, a pullback or breather in prices is probably in order. I like the idea of continuing to buy on any weakness in prices. Also, for those growth investors that have not repositioned their portfolios in some time, any softness in stock prices may be viewed as your chance to get in the game. One thing I failed to mention last month was the concern for the holders of U.S. government bonds. With the economy continuing to deliver good news, chatter in the financial community turns to the possibility of the Federal Reserve ending their stance on low interest rates and signaling its intention to move them higher. That will cause bond prices to go down since price and interest rates move in opposite directions. I would be careful with these types of debt obligations. We are at historically low interest rates and have been for quite some time. The past generation saw declining rates starting from the late ’70s. I think the next generation sees rising rates, and that may not be good for current U.S. bondholders. May the trend be with you!  Gavin Tolan is a financial consultant with Williams Financial Group in Scottsdale.

The ‘One Thing’ That’ll Make Your Marketing Work


hen I tell business owners that I own a marketing company, they usually express how overwhelming the choices are for getting the word out about their product or service. Once they’ve vented their frustrations, I always know the question that’s coming next: “What’s the one thing that really works?” By Julia Kelly, After 25 years in marketing, I’ve learned HeyJulia! Marketing there actually is one thing, and I share it at the end of this article. Feel free to skip to the last paragraph for the short answer, but for those who are ready to put their marketing to work, allow me to start with these simple guidelines:

42 | Scottsdale Airpark News March 2012

Develop a brand that suits your product or service.

Your company name and logo should be a fitting (and easyto-understand) expression of what you’re selling. Scottsdale’s Yogurtology makes mouths water with a logo made from a snappy name, topped with a graphic curlicue “dollop.” Yum.

Build a brand conduit.

Developing a foundation for your marketing program is essential, and I call this the brand conduit. Put simply, know who your target audience is, and how your product or service can uniquely solve their problems or serve their needs. Blueprints for Tomorrow is a Scottsdale company that doesn’t just sell insurance. Its program is targeted to a specific business owner profile, and focuses on solutions to the “what ifs” that keep proprietors worrying and awake at night. A brand conduit is the


With spring on the way, many people are cleaning and putting away their winter link that will carry your prospects from the big idea (your business) across the sea of competition, and over to the other side where they become customers.

Create synergy by deploying your own tactical army.

Your budget will play a significant role in deciding on which tactics you use. Social media and public relations efforts that show up in magazines, newspapers and blogs cost nothing but time. Subscriptions to email blasting services aren’t free, but are definitely still affordable. You can choose to network at galas for hundreds of dollars a seat, join an industry association for an annual fee, pay at the door at monthly meetings, or pitch your business for free when you’re out on the town. Advertising opportunities abound in print, online, and everywhere in between, and direct mail is also an option. Even your website can be considered a tactic. A welldesigned site can do many things at once, like collect email addresses, sell products, and even broadcast the wit and wisdom you’ve written into your blog. The only limitation to the list of tactical options is your imagination, so get creative! Remember to account for the resources each tactic requires to implement. This might include printing, graphic or web design, photography or copywriting. When you’re ready, make a list of every tactic you can think of that would best convey your message to your target audience, put an estimated price next to it, and then use your calculator to whittle it down until you’ve assembled a tactical army that you have the funds and time to deploy. Finally, don’t send your soldiers out until you determine the purpose, messaging, and call to action for each.

wardrobe. If you won’t be using some garments for a while, take precautions before storing them. First, be sure they’re freshly drycleaned or laundered, since food particles left on clothes are the basis for insect damage. Also, store all garments out of light (natural or artificial), which can fade colors. One last tip: anything knit should be folded, not hung, because knit garments may stretch out.

Make and follow a dynamic rolling 12-month plan.

Using a notepad (or a computer spreadsheet) and a calendar, outline each tactic, the dates for implementation, and the resources it will take, and then commit to it for the next 12 months—but only for one month at a time. When you start in January and end in December, the project becomes so daunting that it rarely gets done. But almost every small-business owner can commit to one month of marketing budget and one month of tactics. Your plan should be dynamic, so that you’re always testing and making changes as needed. Then change the plan for the next 12 months including the current month, even if it’s March. If you do it this way, you’ll never have to start at zero. Nor will you won’t spend your Thanksgiving weekend writing up the following year’s plan, only to stamp it “FINAL” and then stop using it completely because one little part didn’t work.

So what’s the one thing that will make your marketing work?

The long and the short of it can be summed up in a simple answer, and it is this: There isn’t just one thing. Your marketing will work when you let go of finding the one thing, and look instead to make all the elements of your program … one.  As president of HeyJulia!, Julia Kelly provides business owners with strategies, coaching and tactics that boost marketing performance.

‘Daphne’s Greek’


operating for nearly 30 years as Daphne‘s Greek Cafe, the fast casual chain of 57 stores has been re-imagined as a new lifestyle brand called Daphne‘s California Greek. Purchased by North Scottsdale-based Bill Trefethen of Wreath Equity LLC in August 2010, the complete brand refresh includes new healthier menu options influenced by California cuisine, a new hip look in the restaurants, and a focus on music and community and lifestyle events. The store at the Scottsdale Promenade, located on Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Scottsdale Road, was refaced in December and is one of many to come into the area. Trefethen, who comes from the fast–food business with involvement in chains like Burger King, created the “California lifestyle brand” from a personal inspiration of his own active lifestyle.

innacle Peak Country Club is honored to host the second annual “Tee it Up for the Troops” Golf Tournament on Wednesday, March 14. A few morning tee-times for foursomes are still available for anyone who wishes to sign on (call Diane Gregg at 480-585-6992). The fee is $250 per player, and includes breakfast, snacks, lunch, golf, awards and photo ops. Each foursome will play with a wounded warrior or military service member. Tee it up for the Troops Inc. is a nonprofit organization that supports the fallen and disabled members of the Armed Forces by contributing scholarships, transportation, housing and athletics to those currently serving, and their families. Pinnacle Peak Country Club members have displayed unwavering support for the event, and more than 240 golfers will take to the links in a double golf shotgun to raise money for the cause. Troops from Walter Reed Army Medical Center will be flown in to play the event. “Over $50,000 was raised last year,” said Brian Straight, general manager of Pinnacle Peak Country Club. “Hosting the event here is a humbling experience and the result of a lot of hard work by many people.”

Goes Bigger, Better, Year—Round By Mark J. Scarp


any who see Scottsdale from the outside relegate most everything horse-related here to a lost era when most every car was not only American and had fins but a local ordinance was passed granting each equine and anyone riding one the right-of-way. While Scottsdale went from Lincolns to Lexuses, the local horse culture continued onward, and equestrian events found a home at WestWorld. Also known in its early days as Horseworld and Horseman’s Park, it was in Scottsdale, and its existence meant that never again would the Scottsdale All-Arabian Horse Show be held in Phoenix, which

it was for a number of years. And now WestWorld is about to enter a new era, one that is sure to have positive economic ramifications for the Greater Airpark. A nearly two-year, $33 million expansion of WestWorld’s equestrian facilities will enclose the semi-outdoor, steel-topped Equidome and create two additional show halls that offer at least 220,000 square feet of exhibition space, says WestWorld General Manager Brian Dygert. Renovation and new construction begins this April with the finished expansion of the Tony Nelssen Equestrian Center planned to open in late 2013.

continued on page 56

March 2012 Scottsdale Airpark News | 55

Quick Facts! > Underway is a $33 million, two-phase expansion of Tony Nelssen Equestrian Center at WestWorld > Phase one is to take place between April and October 2012, including the temporary climate-controlled enclosure of the 100,000square-foot Equidome, the construction of a new 22,000-square-foot paddock and a 45,000-square-foot South Hall. > Phase two is to occur from April to December 2013, including the 70,000- to 120,000square-foot North Hall and permanent enclosure of the Equidome. > The newly upgraded facility is slated to open January 2014. > The work will be paid for by profits from the improved facility, bed tax revenue and contributions from outside entities, according to the city. > In February 2011, Scottsdale City Council voted to rename the facility after Nelssen, a city councilman who died in May 2010 at age 59 after a brief battle with cancer. > Follow the upgrade at Construction/EquidomeExpansion.

56 | Scottsdale Airpark News March 2012

Dygert says the city is negotiating with officials of the BarrettJackson Classic Car Auction to move the annual glitzy show of fine automobiles from a huge tent on the WestWorld property to inside the new permanent structures. If the auction moves inside the Nelssen Center, then the total square footage will be expanded to 270,000. The center will provide upgraded, indoor and air-conditioned places for WestWorld’s many horse events, but also be able to offer space for happenings that Dygert describes as “about anything you can think of, as long as it’s law-abiding and matches the pocketbook of the producer.” “We’ll be able to do a 200-horse horse show in the South Hall, and hold a dishwashing show in the North Hall,” he says with a laugh. When the upgrade begins in April, the Equidome will close for the summer. By October the work won’t be completely finished, but the South Hall and the Equidome will be enclosed with a temporary false wall on its north side, enabling it to be climate controlled for the first time, according to Dygert.

Then, in April 2013, the project’s second phase gets underway, focusing on construction of the North Hall. When complete, the Nelssen Center will be a year-round venue. “The change is that instead of a facility that operates in nine months, we’ll be a facility that operates in 12 months,” Dygert says. Not that the place isn’t busy now. It’s home to about 72 horse events and 100 total events a year during the current nine-month calendar, from the large-scale Arabian Horse Show to less complex shows. When people ask Dygert why the center is expanding, he has a ready answer: “The horse industry is sustainable over time because it’s a way of life. You don’t put it on the shelf for a period of time. It’s quite predictable and quite dependable. Three-quarters of WestWorld activity is in the horse world anyway, so it’s a prime piece of its identity.”
 The expanded facility will better complement those events held at nearby resorts, and space available in the summer months will attract functions that have been held elsewhere, he adds. “These are events that are too small for the Phoenix Convention Center, or events that can’t get on the Convention Center’s calendar.”

Jay Allen, president of the Arabian Horse Association of Arizona, said multipurpose facilities at WestWorld would allow concerts and other entertainment to be presented alongside horse events, attracting and introducing a new audience to the horse community. “Our next big thing is to get the non-horse person to see our event,” Allen said, referring to the Arabian Breeder Finals, which staged its inaugural WestWorld show last October. “The more we can get equestrian events to non-horse people, the better the equestrian world will be.”
 The upgraded Nelssen Center would help expand the Arabian Breeder Finals into a national event, he adds. And Doug Huls of the Sun Circuit Quarter Horse Show is enthusiastic that the climatecontrolled larger space will enable the show to have nighttime events during months when it’s too cold to hold them outdoors. “It will open the door where we can have as many horses as the Arabian show,” he says of Sun Circuit. Enclosing the facility and allowing it to be heated and air conditioned also should enhance WestWorld’s relationship with its residential neighbors, according to Dygert. “Once you’ve got climate control and containment, that means music and lights stay within the walls.”  Kimberly Hundley contributed to this article.

Online Trading Academy Brings Wall Street Know-how to Airpark Students Single moms, should-be retirees, unemployed & recent grads find ‘Plan B’ in day trading


ven as Arizona’s economy starts to slowly shape up (still with a nearly 9 percent unemployment rate), there is still that fear for many of losing their jobs. Many Arizona residents, especially those in their later years, wonder what is their Plan B? For some, the answer is Online Trading Academy, an international professional trading education program with a booming branch located right in the Scottsdale Airpark. At Online Trading Academy, anyone—at any level— can learn to take control of their financial future by essentially “playing” the stock market ... but with serious risk management.

62 | Scottsdale Airpark News March 2012

Ken Beckrich, owner of Online Trading Academy, tells students that in order to be successful trading, you really shouldn’t trade for more than two hours per day. And for some, those two hours a day become a new, flexible and extremely lucrative career. The academy, located near Raintree and the Loop 101 in Scottsdale, is the only the only trading and investing vocational school in Arizona, teaching residents how to trade stocks, options, futures and currencies. More than 400 students have graduated since the 2007 opening, many of whom started out looking for a hobby or backup plan but discovered full-time careers.

Online Trading Academy 15150 N. Hayden Road, Suite 200, Scottsdale 480-634-2301

“If you came into one of our week-long classes, you would likely be shocked by the diversity in the classroom,” says Ken Beckrich, Online Trading Academy’s Phoenix franchisee. “You’ll find older men who have been trading their whole lives, single moms who have never traded before, people who were anticipating retirement but can no longer afford retirement, middle-aged people who have been laid off and cannot find another job, young kids who just graduated college or who choose to go straight into the workforce from high school—almost every type of person imaginable.” Beckrich says his school attracts such a wide range of students because of its worldwide credibility and high success rate. Online Trading Academy began as one of the largest trading floors in the United States in 1997 and now focuses solely on providing students with handson training and real-time stock trading experience with professional instructors. There are more than 25,000 graduates of Online Trading Academy worldwide

across the brand’s 38 franchise locations in the United States, Canada, the U.K., United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Indonesia and India.

Real Money

Students use real money (the school’s money, of course) and trade in real-time at Online Trading Academy, which no other investment-training program offers, says Beckrich. With a professional instructor ’s guidance, students learn how to smartly trade stock with minimal risk, meaning that all students follow the rule that they should never lose more than 1 percent per trade. The hands-on risk management approach is the academy’s primary focus and teaches traders of all levels the best short-term income methods, as well as longer-term wealth management strategies, explains Beckrich. During Online Trading Academy’s weeklong course, students perform up to 100 live trades. “World events will affect your money,” says Beckrich. “The students who come to us at understand that they need

to learn how to be in control of their financial future.” The Professional Trader Fundamentals Course is an on-location, seven-day, extensive hands-on class that teaches complete education and training experience. The course focuses on trading fundamentals, technical analysis, risk management and highly developed skills of execution for any style of trading, including, day, swing and position trading. Unlike most investment and trading programs, Online Trading Academy mirrors traditional vocational and college programs by requiring an application process, according to Beckrich. Only 18 students are accepted per course to offer optimum student-instructor interaction. Students can enroll in specialty courses after completing the fundamentals course. Specialty classes cover a spectrum of asset classes, including Options, Futures (Eminis & Commodities), Wealth Management and Currencies.

64 | Scottsdale Airpark News March 2012

hile the state of Arizona is busy celebrating its 100th birthday, Arizona-based HiHealth is closing in on 40. For Jay Chopra, Hi-Health’s chief operating officer, the connection is undeniable. “Our first store opened in Sun City in 1972,” he says. “People were looking to be more youthful. We want to look younger, feel younger and be healthier than ever before. It’s about feeling good no matter how old you are.” Chopra also believes that Arizonans’ healthy, outdoors lifestyle made them particularly interested in staying healthy and fit. Hi-Health caught the feel-good wave and rode it by listening closely to the people of Arizona. Forty-five stores and 300 employees later, Hi-Health is the state’s largest retailer of high quality health foods and nutritional supplements. Its website,, was launched in 2002, and now ranks first on Google search results for all supplement stores.

In 1990, Hi-Health moved its headquarters to the Scottsdale Airpark, and the location has been an important factor in the company’s success, says Chopra. “We were really one of the pioneers, and it has turned out to be a great move.” He notes the proximity to the freeways and the airport is a real benefit to employees, customers and suppliers, especially as the 45,000-square-foot headquarters—on Karen Drive, just a block from Scottsdale Airport—is also home to Hi-Health’s central distribution center.

Birthday Invite

“Our 40th anniversary is a milestone that reflects the outstanding talents of our knowledgeable team and unwavering commitment to improving customers’ health through better nutrition,” says Chopra, who has been with the company for 22 years, previously serving as vice president of merchandising.

Plans are in the works for Hi-Health customers to help celebrate the company’s birthday, including a new rewards program for its “Gold V.I.P” members. For every dollar spent, members will be rewarded with one point that can be applied to future purchases. Loyal customers will also find a birthday greeting and gift from Hi-Health.

Information Hungry

“The No. 1 thing for us is education,” says Chopra. “You can buy your vitamin C almost anywhere, but where can you find the information you need to understand what will work best for you?” Hi-Health employees receive training and education in the products and the stores are stocked with third party literature so customers can learn more on their own. “Dr. Oz has brought alternative medicine into the mainstream. That’s been a phenomenal thing for our customers,” Chopra says. “Today’s generation says, ‘I want results and I want them now.’ It’s a fast-food mentality: Can I take this pill now and will it have an impact by the end of the week? I hate to break it to you, but there is no magic pill. You need to eat healthy, exercise and

take the supplements your body needs.” Back in 1997, Hi-Health embraced the power of a public voice with a promotion led by broadcaster Paul Harvey; the relationship lasted until Harvey’s death in 2009.

Listening Closely

Hi-Health’s team of researchers, managers and merchandisers make decisions based on customer input. The company encourages visitors to the website to make comments, asking them to “please don’t be shy” in sharing their thoughts. And it pays attention to what people say while they shop. There’s also a 1-800 number that collects customer information. Hi-Health managers meet weekly to review industry trends, and according to Chopra, “a lot of the items we take risks on and the rewards are sometimes phenomenal.” In 2002, Hi-Health took a big risk by expanding its frozen-food line to meet customer demand for low-carb items. That move increased sales by 25 percent.

Healthy Culture

“We encourage our employees to live the lifestyle we preach, certainly with employee

discounts,” says Chopra. “New plans are being readied now for us to become more progressive with employee health.” During the birthday year, Hi-Health plans to enter into a relationship with Vitamin Angels, a nonprofit organization that brings vitamins to children in Third World countries. Chopra cites his company’s involvement in the March of Dimes March for Babies and an upcoming commitment to breast cancer awareness as well. “With an aging population and customer demand for high–quality nutritional products, we are well positioned to take the company to the next level of record-setting growth with new product offerings and the opening of additional stores,” Chopra says. “Much has changed since the company started 40 years ago, but everything we do at Hi-Health is still driven by Sy Chalpin’s original vision and philosophy: to help people manage their health and wellness, be an industry innovator, and give back to the community. As we embark on another 40 years, this will set us apart from our competitors.” 

new breed of therapist is helping special-needs students at Sierra Academy of Scottsdale master socialization skills and other c l a s s ro o m s l e s s o n s . The therapists—three of them, in fact—are dutiful, enthusiastic and, best of all, work for affection and a few tasty treats. Three therapy dogs and their owners make much-anticipated weekly visits to Sierra Academy of Scottsdale to “teach students sensitivity, self-control, compassion and the importance of treating others—pets as well as people—with respect,” said academy director Debra Watland. “Our students have learning, emotional and behavioral challenges—and some are on the Autism spectrum— so these are not concepts they easily grasp,” Watland said. “Introducing the therapy dogs into our classrooms this year has been very beneficial for our students.” The therapy teams began to visit Sierra Academy in September through a school partnership with Phoenix-based Gabriel’s Angels Inc., which provides pet therapy to 13,000 abused, neglected and at-risk children throughout Arizona, said organization CEO Pam Gaber. A golden retriever named Cooper and his owner, Barbara Hall, visit first-to-third-graders at Sierra Academy; Teddy, a cockapoo, and owner Sharon Woodward visit middle school students; and a yellow lab named Rubicon and handler Liz Rosen visit high school students. Second-grader Sahara Daley, 8, said she has learned about canine anatomy and the importance of good grooming and proper feeding. “I sit on the floor with Cooper, hug him and he listens while I read. I don’t think he understands, but he always listens,” said Sahara. “When Cooper gets tired or bored, he rolls over on his back.” “Social skills are built into our regular daily curriculum, but these therapy dog teams are a wonderful supplementary teaching tool,” said Watland. “Students are more receptive and comfortable with these concepts because of these dogs.” Cooper has motivated younger students to read about dogs and other animals, to write short essays about pets, and to make dog puppets and pet scrapbooks. Rubicon helps older students learn about canine physiology with a variety

of classroom projects like comparing his heart rate to their own. “A lesson about healthy pet treats, for example, opens up a classroom discussion about the value of good nutrition for students,” said Watland. “Our students are more engaged in the lesson simply because one of these terrific dogs is involved.” Michael Kaufman is president and CEO of Specialized Education Services Inc., which operates Sierra Academy. “A hallmark of Sierra Academy and our 48 other schools nationwide is that they go the extra mile to use innovative approaches to educate students with special-needs and return them to mainstream classrooms,” he says. “This is just a marvelous example of what we do.” Nine unified public schools in Phoenix area, including Scottsdale, Peoria, Chandler, Mesa, Higley, Paradise Valley, Cave Creek, Payson and Deer Valley, now refer special-needs students in grades 1-11 to Sierra Academy, which offers an intensive, academic curriculum that is custom-tailored for each student.  Specialized Education Services Inc. (SESI), based in Yardley, Pa., is a provider of specialized education for children with learning, language, behavioral and social challenges. It operates 49 schools in 12 states and the District of Columbia.

Barness, who has three sons—ages 6, 11 and 14—enthusiastically agreed to help launch our new feature, by finishing the phrase “You might be an Airparker if …”  The 2-mile radius around Scottsdale and Thunderbird roads becomes your world because you can get everything you need there.  You complain about the airport noise after you knowingly bought a house off the runway. You know the special place to park to avoid the holiday rush at Scottsdale Promenade. (Hint: Use Paradise Lane to get behind Nordstrom Rack.)  You mourn the loss of Market Bistro.  You’d rather meet your friends at Jolta Java than go to a coffee chain.  You know better than to let your precious felines become coyote bait. You use the side streets in the Airpark to get out of traffic jams, and always take 76th Street around to Acoma so you don’t have to sit at Hayden and Redfield.  Love staycations at the Westin-Kierland Resort

{ advice from weiss { March Business Horoscope By Weiss Kelly, PMAFA Whether you’re a small-business owner or have other career aspirations, insights into how the planets influence your work month can help you plan for maximum performance and project success.

ARIES (3/21-4/19) March is the beginning of your New Year. Professional changes and advancements seem slow until September, so remain patient. Complete major projects by the 8th—or quit! Activity early on is more successful; later in the month, you’ll be reprocessing and reevaluating. Break out your cell and reconnect with former clients or contacts. Listen to how you get your points across; it’s all in the attitude (12th-31st). TAURUS (4/20-5/20) March brings some unexpected $$ opportunities (1st11th), and you start to move ahead. If anything requires a signature or verbal agreement, get it in writing, as mistakes can be easily overlooked until the 21st. Pay attention to the details involving your work, what’s in your wallet, and your financial status this month. GEMINI (5/21-6/20) Those “waiting it out” hours past months pay off by the third week. If you haven’t finalized or confirmed a matter by the second week, hold off or it may hold you off. Focus on group contacts or associates that can help you reach your ultimate goals. Communicating and networking is one of your best talents; put it to use. Attend all work-related functions: it’s what you hear that will count. CANCER (6/21-7/22) Keep that carryon handy—travel is likely early in the month. Changes in communications fields/projects will undergo some unexpected reversals. Expect to work harder, and don’t overextend your budget. Put some time into catching up with former clients and attending get-togethers with coworkers.

LEO (7/23-8/22) What is happening in the world’s economy and politics will have important aftershocks for all businesses. Ask yourself how these developments can directly affect your work, no matter how minor. This is the time to get more training or educate yourself on what’s ahead in your industry. Knowledge is power. Take some time off (22nd) from the stress of high-pressure decisions toward the end of the month. You can wait them out. VIRGO (8/23-9/22) You’re making some headway this month but may have to concentrate more on a few issues—and you might feel a bit exhausted. Expect to complete a plan successfully by the first week. Work projects take longer or meet with interference by midmonth. Lastminute changes occur frequently now. Take precautions to ensure your “friendly” computer doesn’t let you down. LIBRA (9/23-10/22) The secret to your successful March is all about relating with others. You may be traveling alone this month, much as you don’t like to. As Mercury goes retro from the 1st to the 21st, you’ll have to make adjustments. Competition is strong in the workplace and market. Your diplomatic/social talents work in your favor. SCORPIO (10/23-11/21) Figure on “Murphy’s Law” going into effect by the second week. Chances are your car, computer, appointments can cause some frustrations, delays, or mix-ups, You can avoid all of this if you think ahead before the 11th. Pull out your organizer, and start making a list of what can be accomplished. Critique what is unnecessary or nonproductive. A needed clarity is revealed.

SAGITTARIUS (11/22-12/21) March ends on a positive note, but things will take a while to get rolling. Ask yourself if you really want to make that commitment or move right now. Step back, and do further research; let time work it’s magic. Another pivotal professional cycle begins in June, and you’ll have more creative solutions. CAPRICORN (12/22-1/19) Communicating is key in the month ahead. Professional obligations may keep you away from family or the office. Take your planner along and make sure you have the right times and places. Anticipate that things won’t fall into place easily. Major developments will not happen until next month. Use this interval to catch up socially with associates. AQUARIUS (1/20-2/18) It’s only money ... and the only thing you’re concerned with as you begin the month. The good news is that potential abounds. You got that reality check last month, and now you’re ready to take a more practical, follow-through approach. Finish any proposals quickly. If considering any major investments, listen to the experts. Reconstruct your ideas with the New Moon on the 2nd, and put them into play by April. PISCES (2/19-3/20) You’ve entered one of your most creative months of the year. Surround yourself with a support system, whether it’s people or resources. Reach out and find solutions. Make practical use of your creative ability. Those in the health industries can expect change and rapid growth. Use your imagination, market yourself. Expect results early next month.
