"Referral partnerships"

In the August 2017 magazine of "The American Legion" there is an article  titled World Builders, The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers. Within this article is a story about how the military attributes of compromise, partnership and the ability to shape a consensus all of which were crucial in producing a positive outcome in a military mission.

When I read the article I thought about how these attributes; compromise, partnership and the ability to shape a consensus also apply to the mission of The Chapel Hill Leads Group. We see it in action each week as our members apply these traits. We hear it within their respective 30 Second infomercials and again in the testimonials given each week. As a result it becomes very evident that the mission of The Chapel Hill Leads Group not only has withstood the test of time (19 + years) but is once again on the path of re-newed achievement.

I invite you to join me at our new location, The University Inn of Chapel Hill and witness for yourself how the attributes of Compromise, Partnership and the Ability to shape a Consensus can produce a positive outcome in your business endeavors.

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.
