A Message from Associate Publisher Amanda Benson
Intelligent. Ambitious. Confident. Passionate. Brave. Dedicated. These are words I believe describe not only the pageant title holder on our cover but also all the remarkable women recognized in our second annual Ultimate Ladies In Business Awards, as well as Zonta’s Tribute Honoree, Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook. These are women who inspire others to live their dreams and work—hard, move forward and truly make a difference.
In the words of Mary Kay Ash, who founded Mary Kay Cosmetics: “If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.” She stressed the importance of recognizing the accomplishments of others by encouraging and rewarding them. Taking her lead, that is what we aim to do in this issue of élite Magazine. Thank you to all who voted and continue to support élite Magazine’s Ultimate Awards, recognizing the outstanding individuals and businesses in our community.

I wholeheartedly recommend Elite Magazine for an advertising source. We have had the pleasure of advertising in the Elite Magazine for the past nine years and watched our business grow because of it.

Amanda is a real professional. She makes her clients feel comfortable and the ease of working with her is incredible. Thanks to her for the ad change suggestions and for the social media exposure. The extras like that make it well worth the money invested, to get her expertise and support.

When i pick up and read elite Magazine I feel connected to the community which is one of the many reasons I have decided to advertise in elite Magazine. I am able to touch many different demographics. I love the format, how the ads and articles are presented. The topics are well written and easy to read. The staff are more than accommodating, helping me with everything from layout to color choice and logo presentation. They understand branding and how important it is. I have received many positive responses from my ads in the magazine and this is why I will continue to be a part of elite Magazine.

Good afternoon and thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
We had the pleasure of receiving our personal issues of the August/September 2016 Elite Magazine today in the mail and we are so excited. There has always been something special about Elite Magazine, and we can't believe that Cruise Planners is part of such an amazing issue. Kirsten's write-up, "Cruising Through Your Honeymoon," and your collaboration with her resulted in a perfect opportunity we are so glad we didn't miss. The supplement, the article, and the entire issue resonates and defines who we are as a company and what our business is built on, we call Cruisitude! We are so very pleased and look forward to future opportunities of advertising with your publication. Did we mention...we are also huge hockey fans!
Thank you, again!
Helene and Lisa of Cruise Planners
