This Week's Speaker:

Brenda Greenberg with Premier Designs helps women make their best first impression, whether going to the office, parent teacher conference, networking event, or out to dinner with friends and family. What’s more important for women when making that first impression, confidence or competence? Why do some women have confidence and others not so much? Is the answer in our DNA or simply the choices we make?

See you there.

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

Did You Know:

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


In the book Effective Speaking and Human Relations by Dale Carnegie the twenty-sixth Edition printed in 1912, I came across a chapter titled "The four Problem-Solving Questions". I think that everyone in our group has to deal with problem-solving in their respective business as well as with daily living.

Dealing with any problem involves the following steps;

     1.) What is the problem? Common sense tells us that we must be able to identify the problem if we are to solve it.

     2.) What are the causes of the problem?

     3.) What are the possible solutions? and

     4.) What is the best solution?

If you can utilize this method, I am confident that you can address and solve most problems in your business. I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning and to witness for yourself why The Chapel Hill Leads Group has been the place to grow your business for over 19 years and counting.

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.
