See you there.

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

If you missed last Wednesday's meeting, you missed...

Stop struggling in your business and instead get fast, proven answers to your business questions and challenges! Dr. Barnsley Brown of Spirited Solutions Professional Speaking and Coaching will facilitate a game-changing business mastermind this Wednesday. 

Everyone came to the meeting prepared with their specific business challenge or question.  They left this energizing mastermind session with plentiful ideas, input, and best practice suggestions from an experienced group of business movers and shakers.  Don't miss out on your next opportunity to have your very own Chapel Hill Leads Advisory Board!

... You were indeed missed.

"Thanksgiving Day"

While you can trace back the origin of Thanksgiving Day, one thing is certain. It is a day in which we should all be thankful for the opportunities available to us in this country. We have our share of troubles and missed opportunities, but when all things are considered, this is the place where ordinary people can do extraordinary things. Where the sky is the limit and where people from all over the world strive to reach America, where they can live the American dream.

We have business owners within our Leads Group who have become successful through hard work, availability of mentors, association with other successful business owners and some lucky breaks. I believe that I can speak for these business owners when I say, we are truly thankful for our lives, associations and others within the Chapel Hill Leads Group.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving Day and hope to see you every Wednesday morning at The Chapel Hill Leads Group.

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.
