Did You Know:

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

"Thanksgiving Day 2019"

As I sit here tonight thinking about the traditional Thanksgiving holiday, my thoughts remind me of what I personally am thankful for. Like most of you, we think about our families, our health, our success and prosperity and of course the relationships that have come about from membership in the Chapel Hill Leads Group.

When this group first started, the purpose was to form a venue that offered a unique business and referral model, unlike any other. One that was based first upon getting to know the individual so that we could feel comfortable in referring his/her business to our clients and customers. In a word, that relationship is based upon "Trust". To my joy and delight, as I never imagined, the group has been in existence for over 21 continuous years, and one that had witnessed the birth of 12 other similar Leads Groups throughout the Triangle and Triad region.

I, personally am so thankful for having the opportunity to be a part of this ongoing experience, of seeing just how far personal relationship building can go towards both personal success and benefits to our respective communities.

I invite you to attend this Wednesday morning, with a smile on your face, a song on your mind and thankfulness for the opportunity to share your life and your dreams with your fellow members of the Chapel Hill Leads Group.

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.
