Bill Gerdes - Care Adviser/Partner
“The best possible preparation of success is to empower yourself with trust in self capabilities.” -Anil S.
After 25 years of being a member of teams, leading teams, and often assembling teams, the words above hit extremely close to home for me.
Therefore, when I met Sonja Gunter, I knew something greater than either of us was at work. Our country has a socio-economic tsunami coming in the next 20 years. Families will need resources, guidance, and expertise to navigate the stages of caring for our elderly loved ones. Often children dodge the subject, and then life happens, and families are in reactive mode. Where to go for guidance? “How can we have our mother assessed? What if dad has another stumble?” It happens often; and that, my friends, is how Senior 911 came to be. Your emergency truly is our urgency.
I asked myself, “Honestly, what does a sales leader know about the care of seniors?” Well, one, it takes a selfless leader who has worn the shoes of those who represent our team daily. Two, it takes a strong commitment to invest in the very best people we can attract. Three, and above all, the well-being of your loved one supersedes all.
The commitment starts at the top. Therefore, becoming a partner with Sonja Gunter in Senior 911 was a true blessing. While franchises may offer many resources, what many cannot offer is the experience of having worn all hats across multiple stages of the senior care industry. Her life’s work is her resume. The time is now.
We are about the mission. As many as 80 million seniors are progressing beyond the age of 65 by the year 2040. Provide us the opportunity to earn your trust. May God bless you and your family always.
