Happy New Year! 2020 is now hindsight and was challenging to say the least. But we have survived, and now, I believe, we can thrive mov-ing forward!
Do you have or ‘do’ New Year’s resolutions? It seems that many of us have high expectations or set very lofty goals for ourselves or business. I personally am not a big proponent of resolutions per se, but it is important that we have goals or a target in mind. Further, I suggest they be very specific, taking small steps or aiming incrementally towards your objective (i.e. one new customer/client/contact per week or month; organizing one cabinet/drawer at a time; losing 5-10 pounds towards that 20, 25, 40 pound loss, etc.). This, of course, is using the tried and true SMART goals philosophy.
As a chapter, we need to do the same. We recognize that we want to increase our membership by 7-10 new members. And that takes the support and assistance of each member—and begins by inviting guests (‘future members’!) to each meeting. The benefits and value of our membership is endless (education and learning at all levels, growth opportunities (personal or professional) with long term net-working and friendships.
Towards that end, we have several great upcoming presentations; I encourage you to invite a guest. We need your help! We will also be holding a Happy Hour Meet & Greet in March. (See our calendar!)
We can move and grow together—offering the continued gift of ABWA to others!
In ABWA Friendship,
2020-2021 Pathfinder President
