This Week's Meeting

Suzanne Chaney, Shaklee Distributor

Join My Mission To Turn Sick Care Into Well Care

To collect on “health” insurance, you have to get sick. To collect on “life” insurance, you have to die. Medicine today is focused on sick care. Well care is prevention and it starts with a simple 30 day challenge.

Suzanne has a graduate degree in biochemistry from UCLA. She had a career in research for the EPA, before becoming an entrepreneur. She has been a successful business woman for 50 years.

See you there.

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

"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. That is why the Chapel Hill Leads Group is the longest running business referral group in the Triangle Region now celebrating over 21 continuous years in helping small business owners achieve success.

I encourage you to check out our website at www.chapelhillleads.com and 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.

Support the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina

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.
