This Week's Speaker:

Open Networking Meeting

This Wednesday, 18 April is an Open Networking Meeting at the Chapel Hill Leads Group. Take this opportunity to develop one new relationship. Introduce yourself to someone attending the CHLG for the first time. Expand your CHLG network by connecting with an existing CHLG member for the first time. Make an effort to get to know them and how you can help their business grow.

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

"The Heart Of The Entrepreneur"

In the book "Dare To Succeed" by Van Crouch there is a quote by Theodore Roosevelt that, I believe, captures the very heart of each of us, as business owners and entrepreneurs. It reads:

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best, knows the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

I invite you to join me and your fellow entrepreneurs and small business owners and to see why the Chapel Hill Leeds Group is the premier business referral group in the region, now celebrating our 20th continuous years. Remember to bring a smile on your face, a song on your mind and an attitude of gratitude for the life that you have been given and the opportunities available in this great nation, America.

Respectfully,

Lee Schearer


Support the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina

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.
