As Abraham Lincoln supposedly said, "It's not the years in your life, it's the life in your years." Everyone seems to want to live longer, but what about quality of life? As we age, we face quite a few health challenges. Susan Saenger will explain how exercise can help improve your health and quality of life.

Did You Know:

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

"Developing an Insider's Reputation in the Niche"

I recently had the honor of being given a copy of the book "Getting New Clients", authored by one of our past members, Jeff Davidson. Chapter 11 refers to the above mentioned title. In part the author states that one of the four objectives is "becoming an active, accepted, visible, working and serving member of the infrastructure of the niche or profession"

So it is with the Leads Group. Those members who participate regularly, attend our social functions, and contribute to our charitable events and stay after the meeting to meet other members, are the folks who se the greatest benefit from our organization. I encourage everyone to develop the good habits of "marketing" referred to in the book Getting New Clients.

I hope to see you this week with a smile on your face, a song in your heart and a positive attitude in your life.

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.
