Our Next RSFBPW Meeting
President's Message:

Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests,
I grew up in the Rockies of Montana and every Fall was harvest season.  Farmers worked long hard days to till the ground in the spring, plant acres and acres of seeds (lots of alfalfa, strawberries, vegetables), and then water and weed the soil throughout the entire summer, so that it would create a bountiful harvest in the Fall.  It also included a watchful eye over varmints who liked to use the crops as their own personal buffet!  
But sometimes mother nature and insects would interfere with the success of those crops. Seasoned farmers are tenacious and reverent and they don't let life's sucker punches cripple them. They stay true to their course to create the highest yielding crops as possible year after year.
 Since country life and farming are my reference point, I always see business as similar to farming.  When we meet people, we nurture the soil (the relationship) with water and care and attention (follow up) to ultimately yield an excellent "crop" (revenue) of business.
If we're lazy and inconsistent,  
our "crop" will fail.   
If we let outside circumstances pull us down and defeat us,  the "crop" will also fail.
Every day counts and every action counts.  Stay true to the course of your purpose and passion and your "why" in your business.   Those are the strong anchors that will  create a bountiful harvest  when life wants to take you down.  The secret word is tenacity. You can do it! 
We have 3 months left in 2017!  Let's make it strong, purposeful, and powerful in both our personal and business life.  And feel free to post any inspiration on our RSFBPW facebook page:  We'd love to hear from you!  
Change your habits, Change your life,

Gina Ruby, RSFBPW President

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.
