The Chapel Hill Leads Group has moved to its NEW location,

Chapel Hill University Inn, 1301 Fordham Boulevard, Chapel Hill, NC 27514.

This Week's Speaker:

Michael LaRocca went to Hong Kong in December 1999 for a one-month vacation. It took him twelve years to get back to North Carolina. Six years in China, five years in Thailand, and one in Vietnam. How'd that happen? Find out at the next meeting of the Chapel Hill Leads Group.

See you there.

More importantly, Bring plenty of Business Cards and be ready to network!




If you missed last Wednesday's meeting ...

This past Wednesday, 16 August was an Open Networking Meeting at the Chapel Hill Leads Group. New business relationships were forged. Introduction with first time CHLG attendees were created. Member business networks were grown by reconnecting with existing CHLG members. Make an effort to get to know them and how you can help their business grow.

You were indeed missed.

Did You Know:

"Appreciation"

You have heard me mention the word appreciation many times in my closing remarks each week. Appreciation is defined as " The act of estimating the quality of things and giving them their proper value" Inherent within that definition is the act of keeping value in its perspective or relevancy. One cannot really be appreciative of something unless he/she has experienced the opposite of whatever it is that is to be appreciated. I recently came upon a Tibetan prayer, that I wish to share with you, and one that illustrates this belief;

"Grant that I may be given appropriate difficulties and sufferings on this journey, so that my heart may be truly awakened and my practice of liberation and universal compassion may be truly fulfilled"

I invite you to join me at the Chapel Hill Leads Group, this Wednesday morning, with a big smile on your face, a skip in your step, a song in your heart and an attitude of gratitude for the life you live, in this great country, America, the beautiful.

Respectfully,

Lee Schearer

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.
