"Goals and the Chapel Hill Leads Group"

In the pamphlet Excerpts From "The Treasury of Quotes" by Jim Horn there is a section titled Goals & Plans which reads in part "Goals; There's no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There's no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There's no telling what will happen when you act upon them".

I believe that one of the main goals for attending the Chapel Hill Leads Group is to let us help you in establishing your goals for success and to build a plan to achieve those attainable results. The pathway to success is to surround yourself with successful people. The Chapel Hill Leads Group is a wellspring of business knowledge and expertise from startups and those of us who have been in business for decades. It is truly a gathering of the knowledge and experience like none other within the region.

I encourage you to check out our new and developing website at www.chapelhillleads.com and view the Newsletter to see who our members are and how you can benefit from being a part of this organization. The cost to you is minimal, the value to you is priceless. I look forward to seeing you this Wednesday Morning.

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.
