From: Lee Schearer,

"Investments That Pay Real Benefits"

With the current talk about investments and the financial markets I am reminded about the true measure of worth in two particular forms of investments, those being of friendship and happiness. I am reminded each week at the Chapel Hill Leads Group of the investment that we make by participating in this group of entrepreneur's seeking to develop both business and personal relationships.

I reflected on the fact that the friendships made and the laughter we share are gifts to be cherished, for they are the best fruits of life. The surest and safest investment for future happiness is not to be measured in money or belongings, but in the relationships and friendships that we make along life's journey.

Please join me this Wednesday morning at the Chapel Hill Leads Group and experience the atmosphere that has made this the premier referral group in the Triangle region. I look forward to seeing you this week with a smile on your face, a skip in your step and gratitude for the opportunity to experience the gifts of friendships and laughter.

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.
