"Worry & Problem Solving"

We all worry about something and as business owners we also need to problem-solve situations as well. Of the many self-help books that I have read, I have learned that there are some simple methods to follow in order to establish a clear pathway to success. They include:

      1.) Determine what the problem is?

      2.) Determine the causes of the problem?

      3.) Determine if there is a possible and effective solution

      4.) Act on that solution, if at all possible.

      5.) Learn from the experience so that you can apply the methodology when the next situation arises, and it will.

Worry and business ownership go together. It is inevitable. However it can also be managed, if you put the problem in perspective and then develop a plan of action to deal with the problem/worry in an effective manner. One way to learn the techniques on how to manage worry, stress and business problems is to attend the Chapel Hill Leads Group and to learn from those of us who have been in business over many years. The Chapel Hill Leads Group has a unique blend of business owners from all walks of life and a variety of business backgrounds in which to learn from.

I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning and to witness for yourself why the Chapel Hill Leads Group has established itself as the premier business referral group in the region, now celebrating 19 years in existence. Remember to bring a smile on your face, a song on your mind and an attitude of gratitude for the life you live and the opportunities available to you in our great nation, America.

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.
