Did You Know:

From: Lee Schearer,
To: My Fellow Chapel Hill Leads Group Members

"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 at our new location, and to experience why the Chapel Hill Leads Group is the oldest 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.
