Our Next RSFBPW Meeting
President's Message:

Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests,

Summer is finally here!  Bye bye May gray and June gloom.... hell000o long, sunny, warm days!  We are so blessed to live in Paradise.  Summer is a great time of year to get outside, get moving, and to reconnect with old friends and even meet NEW friends.
And just because it's summer, it doesn't mean we have to slack off with building our business. Let's be intentional about staying "connected".  Stay connected with your current clients and be mindful of connecting with new people you meet. 

You never know, some new acquaintances that we meet at pool parties, bbq's, or family reunions just may turn out to be awesome future clients of ours! And just as importantly, we may be able to connect them to other businesses with no expectations in return.  The secret word is connect.

In the world of texting, emails, and social media, let's remember to keep human touch a priority on a daily basis in some fashion.  The summer goes fast!  Enjoy each day.

Embrace your dreams,

Gina Ruby, RSFBPW President

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.
