Home Care Inspirational Quotes from Boyd and Nicholas

When Ankota first started out, we went to several trade shows to meet people and to learn more about the home care industry.  One of the first few people I remember meeting at the NAHC Financial Managers Conference in Boston in 2009 were Tom Boyd andtom boyd Tom Nicholas from the creatively named company Boyd & Nicholas.  They're pictured here in this blog article, but the couple of times that I met them they weren't dressed in jackets and ties as they're depicted here.  Instead they were wearing shorts and Birkenstock's and walking around inviting people to come to their booth to get into their drawing for a couple of nice bottles of wine.  

They call themselves "the Cost Report People" and their main business is to do the accounting and cost reporting for Medicare Certified Home Health Agencies.  Here at Ankota, we mostly focus on Private Duty Care, Home Health Therapy and Care Coordination, so I don't know a real lot about cost reports, but I do receive Tom and Tom's emails.  They usually share financially-oriented and compliance-related newstom nicholas in Home Health and they also share a lot of inspirational quotes.  In this week's edition, and in celebration of their 19th anniversary, they shared a whole bunch of quotes and I liked a lot of them.  So here you go...  Home Care Inspirational Quotes:
