This Week's Meeting:

John Teague - Chatham Real Estate Photography

Because most home buyers start their search on the Internet, good photography is a critical part of attracting buyers to a particular house. In his real-estate photography, John Teague wants every room to appear bright, clean and spacious. In his presentation, John will use sample photos to show how he achieves these effects. John will also describe his photography for businesses, apartment complexes, historic homes and other properties.

See you there.

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

Did You Know:

To: My Fellow Chapel Hill Leads Group Members


"Remembering September 11, 2001"

On July 4th, 1776, 56 men and 13 colonies declared in a united and loud voice heard around the world that we will "not go gentle into that good night!" as a colony of England. Eleven score and five years would pass before American blood would be shed on American soil by a foreign enemy.

Take a moment this Tuesday to remember those who gave their ultimate sacrifice for freedom and peace on September 11, 2001 and through the current date. We honor them, that their sacrifice will be realized in peace and understanding that all people "are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness..."

We hope to see you all this Wednesday, bright and early with a smile on your face and a fire in your heart burning for success.

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.
