Ivory or Gold … Quite the Conundrum

Yes, that’s what you get for a 14th anniversary celebration and that’s what those of us at South Florida Hospital News & Healthcare Report are celebrating with this July 2018 issue. Can you believe you’ve been putting up with me (for some reason, no one ever minds “putting up” with Carol) for 14 years? We’re a pretty loyal group at SFHN&HR, we still have the same design/editorial staff, Stuart Web has printed more than 3 million newspapers since our very first issue in 2004 despite hurricanes, power outages, floods, and maybe a few times our very late transmissions … and we’ve never missed a deadline.
And much like our 47 years of marriage, Carol and I have managed to construct a business wholly dependent upon having two completely different, yet complementary (we think) personalities and array of skills. We really are the epitome of “yin and yang.” Where I have never met a person I couldn’t interact with, Carol is still waiting. Where I have never shied from public speaking or human interaction, Carol is still waiting. And where I have never thought twice about purchasing a new gadget or software to “enhance” our business, Carol is … well, let’s just say she’s less than enthusiastic.
According to one of Carol’s many signs that decorate her part of the office, “The only thing more overrated than natural childbirth, is the joy of owning your own business.” (Or in our case, owning and operating SFHN&HR.) But, seriously, we can both hardly believe we’ve been doing this for so many years and do you know what the biggest takeaway has been? All of the friends, colleagues, and readers we’ve met along the way. Without all of you, well, I can’t even begin to imagine. While other publications have come and gone, we’ve tried to evolve and improve with every single issue. We’ve also introduced CannabisNewsFlorida to the community, providing updated information and resources to our readers on this nascent Florida industry. But most important, we’ve tried to be responsive to all our readers, providing assistance, support and a helping hand to the entire healthcare community. We are ALWAYS just a phone call away.
