Thanks to realtor Bernie Small for hosting the third check-in of our 100 Day Challenge to increase your sphere of influence and grow your business. We had five of our 19 members in attendance which seems meager on one level but on another level it gave us some time to really connect and learn more about each other. Each person will get out of the challenge results proportional to the amount of effort they expend. For myself I have managed to add 39 new contacts to my business network in the last 30 days, putting me nearly 10 people ahead of the goal. John Jones reported numbers in excess of mine while the other three participants who checked in declared they were satisfied with the progress they are making and looking forward to continue to build.
My 39th contact is Mike from Patriot Painting who is plastering and painting our entryway and doing a great job. If you need a referral for a good paint and drywall guy give me a call and I’ll pass along his contact info.
Our check-in took place at a condo that Bernie is in the process of selling near Ainslie and Marine Drive. Part of the strategy is to meet at venues related to the occupations of our challenge members so that we can learn more about what each of us are doing and give those individuals a chance to be the host. If you know anyone looking for a nice one-bedroom condo priced under 150K just south of Foster Avenue and steps from the lake contact Bernie Small.
We all brainstormed ideas to help Cengiz more effectively connect high school graduates with mentors who can help them gain experience and insight regarded to attaining their life and career goals. Susan gave a short presentation related to creating a business plan that could be used for planning virtually any kind of activity. I hope others will step-up and offer to share ideas and expertise that will help to make us all more effective in what we do.
The next event will take place at the Roots Room February 28, 2017 from 6-8 PM followed by our halfway point check-in at the offices of Dr. Edgardo Vargas Friday March 10th from 11:00 to 1:00. A light lunch will be served. So mark your calendars.
