“Change is inevitable, growth is intentional,” according to writer Glenda Cloud.

Those looking to succeed in this business (or who have already found success) more than likely are constantly evolving as businesspeople, adapting their talents to reflect the marketplace, the end consumer.

Whether that change be effected through adopting best practices or finding innovative new products, the end result can be a win-win for both buyer and seller.

For me, change is in the air on both a personal and professional level.

As of January 7, Brian Anderson has moved on to helm another publication within WiesnerMedia, Senior Market Advisor‘s parent company. I step into his shoes, this editor’s desk, with great anticipation about what lies ahead.

Most recently, I served as editor of a commercial real estate publication based in Downtown Los Angeles, and I’m still trying to figure out if the biggest change is switching gears from real estate to insurance and finance or the geographical/cultural move of L.A. to Denver.

So far, it’s a draw.

As for Senior Market Advisor, expect many positive steps forward this year. SMA is already a leading brand for agents and advisors, but we have much in store for you to add to that already solid foundation. Among the hot topics this year are redesigns of the print publication and Web site rolling out in the very near future.
