Did You Know:

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


One definition of caring is "to be concerned; have thought or regard." I think that is fair to say that the members of the Chapel Hill Leads Group care about each other and hope that their business succeeds. In that regard while at the Veterans Administration Hospital recently I saw a brochure titled "I CARE". The acronym is as follows: Commitment, Advocate, Respect, Excellence.

I also believe that to succeed in any business these traits are essential;

      * You must be committed to your chosen field of endeavor.
      * You should act as an advocate of your business and your client.
      * You must respect your client and yourself and finally
      * You should maintain excellence in your service to your client.

I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning and experience the why The Chapel Hill Leads Group maintains the longest tenure of any business referral group in the Triangle Region. Remember that the cost is minimal however the value of membership 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.
