President's Message
Summer 2019


New Year!  Did you make resolutions?

There is a long history to this tradition. For example, Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus whom the month of January is named. In the medieval era knights made the "peacock vow" at the end of the Christmas season each year to re-affirm their commitment to chivalry. 

Here in the United States, at the end of the Great Depression, about a quarter of American adults formed New Year's resolutions. At the start of the 21st century, about 40% did.  In fact, according to the American Medical Association, approximately 40% to 50% of Americans participated in the New Year's resolution tradition from the 1995 Epcot and 1985 Gallop Polls  a study found 46% of participants who made common New Year's resolutions (e.g. weight loss, exercise programs, quitting smoking) were likely to succeed, over ten times as among those deciding to make life changes at other times of the year. 

I'll share with you one of my New Years Resolutions, which is to read one leadership book a month, and to attend an event that I can take away at least one idea that will improve the lives of my clients.

That event of choice is East Valley Estate Planning Council. Every month, I come away with great ideas, great connections and good feelings that come from being part of an amazing community.

We look forward to having you join us as we kick of the New Year with great speakers, the collaboration, and most importantly, the community.

Make attending a resolution...you'll be happy you did!

All my best,

Carina Burtell

2019/2020 EVEPC President
