May the Month Be With You!
A message from Rhea Allen
May Day, the 4th of May, and the 5th of May has already whipped past us, and here we are right smack dab in the middle of one of the best months ever! We get a whole 31 days to plant seeds, watch our efforts start to grow, and enjoy life, as we begin to inch closer and closer to “normal.”
Just a few weeks in, and my calendar is already packed with the kinds of things that I love to do in the community! I’d like to share a few things that are very special to me.
Once again, I had the privilege of teaching a new cohort of students as an adjunct professor with Boise State University, and it’s so gratifying to see how bright and ambitious the next generation of marketing professionals are going to be!
It’s a trope, but I learn as much from them as they learn from me, and their final presentations blew me away. It’s an exciting time with lots of opportunity, and the best (as always) is yet to come. I look forward to next semester, and another opportunity to be a part of shaping the future of marketing.
I look forward to serving on a panel of incredible women in conjunction with the Meridian Chamber of Commerce; “Speaking Up Against Harassment: Equipping Women for Courageous Conversations” on Wednesday, May 12th. Being a part of an in-person event is something that I have really been looking forward to getting back to, and I have a new-found appreciation for the little things like getting to see my colleagues and peers out in the open again. Let’s keep the momentum going!
No matter what summer is going to bring to your family, business, or workplace, I hope that you can take this month to stop and smell the flowers, appreciate the green, and plant those seeds not only for next month, but next year.

Matt also is the host of the Mostly Automotive Marketing Podcast, a bi-weekly-ish podcast all about Automotive Marketing. Mostly.
Up until age 42, April convinced herself she was “less than”. First, because of the toxic relationship with her mom and THEN because she believed she was an inadequate mom to her nonverbal, autistic child. That was until she discovered she was April 2.0 after just 42 days of investing (not spending) time with her friend and mentor (and now husband), Roy. Having mostly overcome the difficult issues in her life, she is now April 2.0, the new and transformed version of herself. Because of her trials and breakthroughs, she is now in love with drawing out the dormant inner lioness within women and moms everywhere. By sharing transformational one-liners and teaching both the mechanical and mindset sides of live streaming, she helps women go from feeling inferior to owning their confidence. Once they are empowered, April connects them with their divine connections through her Netfriending® People Search Engine.
