Our Next RSFBPW Meeting
President's Message:

Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests,

I hope you've had an awesome Summer so far.  And the good news is, we still  have LOTS of Summer left since we live in Paradise.  We are blessed! 

With that said, we only have 5 months remaining in 2017.  Where does the time go?!? What are some goals, dreams, bucket list items, etc. that you have been procrastinating on all year?

The top 3 New Years resolutions are: lose weight, make more money, have better relationships.  Those aren't measurable goals. 

Make ONE action step for each goal you have and do that step in the next 24 hours.  A body in motion stays in motion.  The secret word is action.  A brain in action stays in action.  And celebrate how good it felt to take the step.

Since time doesn't stand still, and Christmas will be here before we know it, look at your list of 2017 goals and take the next most obvious step to start making your goals happen. 


Wash, rinse, repeat and you will thank yourself a year from now.  

Create your dreams,

Gina Ruby, RSFBPW President

Please remember to update your information whenever it changes, including new photos and logos. You are invited to participate in the monthly drawing for members only by bringing and talking about your donation during the drawing portion of our meeting. You can place your items for sale on 1/2 of a table located in the back of the room before, and after our monthly meetings, from January through October.

Monthly speakers are the only ones allowed to place their information on the luncheon tables during our meetings.  Due to the size of our membership, we are unable to send out group emails to all members regarding a special event or announcement you may want to share with members. Be sure to post your announcement on our Facebook Business Page.  Thank you.

Shout-Outs and Testimonials

We may  run out of time at our meetings to share our testimonials for each other's services, products, and community announcements. We encourage you to write your praise and mail an email or note to the member who you want to applaud. Send your friends a special email sharing your testimonial about the member you are highlighting. Post your Shout-Out on our RSFBPW Facebook page and on your own FB page.
We offer Shout-outs and testimonial time at the end of many of our meetings, however it depends on the time left after our speaker has concluded their presentation. We do not offer testimonial time at our November and December meetings because of the length of the program. We encourage you to pass out your information, flyers, handouts and community announcements during the open networking time which is between 11:15 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. 

You may also want to use your 20 second commercial time during the meeting to share your business event or announcement with the group and invite interested members to pick up a flyer with more details in the back of the room. Thanks for cheefully working with us!

A Gentle Reminder about Spamming RSFBPW members

Members and visitors must individually ask each member for permission to place them on any form of mass communication-email blasts, newsletter lists, U.S. Mail lists or group texts.  Without each member's individual permission, we consider this type of communication to be an act of spamming. To build long-term relationships with members please write personal notes and emails first and after developing rapport, ask these members only for permission to place them on your mailing list. Thank you for your cooperation.

Do you want people to shop online, come into the store, share a sale with friends via Facebook - or maybe you just want them to read an article on your website? Whatever your goal, it's important to make sure you have one before hitting send. Optional Link
