This Week's Meeting:

Sharon Hill and Lee Schearer Moderate "WG Acceptance Meeting"

Two weeks ago, CHLG began a Major Revamping of our meeting structure to provide a more efficient use of CHLG Members' time. The complete process was conducted in an open and transparent manner inviting participation by our existing and new members. The result was a list of several actionable items. One week ago the proposed solutions were presented to the working grorup, reviewed, and accepted with changes. This week;s meeting will present the finalized materials for acceptance.

Several CHLG Member companies made this possible through the application of their "unique problem solving skills" and "out of the box thinking", This is "Building a Business" in action.

See you there.

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

This is "Building a Business" in action. Put on your "out of the box thinking hat" and bring your "problem solving skills" to this week's CHLG meeting.

"If Only"

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 as planned. It is very easy to blame others, events and your competition.

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 your peers and with business mentors, those who are successful with years of experience and those who are new to business ownership. One such group is the Chapel Hill Leads Group. Our group has a proven track record of helping start-ups, now into our 20th year.

I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning and to experience why the Chapel Hill Leads Group is the premier business referral group in the region. The price is minimal however, the value is priceless.

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.
