Tom Zeihler, Senior Benefits Consultant
DiStefano Insurance Services, Inc.

Mr. Mike Jones, President
The Ruby Group

This month's meeting was loaded with valuable information for the small business owner and employees. Mr. Zeihler provided many new options for health insurance coverage that will become mandated by law in 2018. If you are not up to date on all of the changes, please be certain to contact a qualified health plan advisor to give you the proper information. The changes are many and can be confusing. Don't try to do it alone!

This month we also heard from Mr. Mike Jones, a successful motivational speaker. He gave us some quick-hit tidbits to think about as we move through each day running our businesses. Both speakers were quite engaging, thank you for joining our group this month. A big thank you as well to Mi Rancho, our host restaurant. We all enjoyed the yummy lunch time sustenance.
