"How to Appreciate Diversity in the Workplace"

By having so many different types of thinking – stemming from different upbringings, mindsets, or backgrounds – you and your company need to be aware of how not to offend your customers unintentionally.

... You were indeed missed.

More importantly, Bring plenty of Business Cards and be ready to network!

"A Positive Attitude"

I would like speak of a man who has helped me in the development of my positive attitude. That person is Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of The Power Of Positive Thinking. In his Introduction Dr. Peale states, in part, "The positive thinker constantly sends out positive thoughts, together with vital mental images of hope, optimism and creativity. He therefore activates the world around him positively and strongly tends to draw back to himself positive results." To put it a more simplistic way is "like minds think alike".

That is one reason why the Chapel Hill Leads Group has been so successful, now in its 20th consecutive year. It serves as a small business incubator, where our members can meet with other entrepreneur's. It operates as a business referral organization, but it also serves as a board of directors that can help each other achieve success in their respective business.

I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning and to witness for yourself why The Chapel Hill Leads Group should be part of your marketing plan.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
