This Week's Meeting:

Suzanne Chaney - Shaklee Distributor

We all have foundational needs…good health and prosperity.  Suzanne will share her Shaklee story.  Starting from being a shy biochemist with a dream whose comfort zone was the lab she ran for the EPA to being an entrepreneur.  She will share how she built her Shaklee business and has created an income producing asset that will pay her every month for the rest of her life.

See you there.

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

If you missed last Wednesday's meeting ...

Open Networking Meeting

Last Wednesday, 19 September was an Open Networking Meeting at the Chapel Hill Leads Group. New business relationships were forged. Introduction with first time CHLG attendees were created. Member business networks were grown by reconnecting with existing CHLG members. Make an effort to get to know them and how you can help their business grow.

... You were indeed missed.

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

"If Only"

We have all heard this phrase numerous times before, and to be honest, I am confident that most of us have also used that phrase ourselves, whenever things don't as planned. It is very easy to blame others, events and your competition.

However, that phrase "if only" should be a rallying cry. It should be an opportunity to analyze what went wrong and most importantly, how can you learn from the "if only" experience.

One of the best ways to learn from an "if only" experience is to associate yourself with your peers and with business mentors, those who are successful with years of experience and those who are new to business ownership. One such group is the Chapel Hill Leads Group. Our group has a proven track record of helping start-ups, now into our 20th year.

I invite you to join me this Wednesday morning and to experience why the Chapel Hill Leads Group is the premier business referral group in the region. The price is minimal however, the value is priceless.

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.
