We have all heard this phrase numerous times before, and to be honest, I am confident that most of us have also used that phrase ourselves, whenever things don’t work out as planned. It is very easy to blame others, events and your, so called, competition and maybe the Coronavirus i.e.COVID-19.
However, that phrase “if only” should be a rallying cry. It should be an opportunity to analyze what went wrong and most importantly, how can you learn from the “if only” experience. One of the best ways to learn from an “if only” experience is to associate yourself with a networking group of your peers and fellow business mentors, those who are successful with years of experience and those who are new to business ownership.
That networking group is the Chapel Hill Leads Group, with a proven track record of over 22 consecutive years in helping of fellow business owners. See www.chapelhillleadsgroup.com. I invite you to join our ZOOM networking meeting this week with our host Sharon Hill. The link is also located in our website for your convenience.
“Operation Overlord” was the codename for the Battle of Normandy, the Allied operation that launched the successful invasion of German-occupied Western Europe during World War II. The operation was launched on 6 June 1944 with the Normandy landings. Wikipedia”.
This date has a deep emotional significant meaning for me as my Father was one of the soldiers who landed on Normandy Beach in the first wave. A Captain at the time, he was able to avoid serious injury and lead his Company (I) into occupied France, until a serious wound ended his deployment in which he was hospitalized back in England for over 13 months. He was also awarded a Bronze Star Metal, the Purple Heart and the Army Commendation Metal before his retirement with over 27 years from the US Army, Medical Corp. as a Lt. Colonel.
I encourage everyone, especially those of you are now home-schooling, to take the time to look back into our history of those events of Operation Overlord. Without the determination of those in The Greatest Generation, we may not be able to enjoy the benefits of self-determination and self-employment which brings us to The Chapel Hill Leads Group.
I look forward to the time that we can gather again, face to face. Until then please connect with us, as our co-host Sharon Hill leads our group into our ZOOM meeting this Wednesday morning.
Memorial Day originally honored military personnel who died in the Civil War (1861-1865). The holiday now honors those who died in any war while serving with the United States. It is also called Decoration Day.
As we honor this memorial Day, 2020, I trust that you take time to really consider what this day means, especially if you are a parent who is “home-schooling” due to the COVID 19 virus limitations, imposed by our state government. Remember, history is lost on those who choose not to remember it!
I invite you to join the Chapel Hill Leads Group this and every Wednesday, either by participation via our current ZOOM meetings hosted by Sharon Hill or when we can meet again in person, which I hope will be very soon. Please stay connected through our web-site at www.chapelhillleads.com and email messages which will be sent to you.
