Our Next RSFBPW Meeting
President's Message:
 
  

Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests,

"April showers bring May flowers" is a great reminder that the storms that come into our lives can create BEAUTIFUL gardens of peace, joy, and love if we allow them.   
APRIL showers
Reflect back on some of the most challenging or sad times of your life.  Have you allowed those circumstances to make you better or bitter? Bitterness robs us of our joy, our purpose, and our passion.  Life is too short to be a slave to bitterness. Never under estimate the beauty that can come from ashes.
 
The storms aren't easy to navigate through, but by sharing our pain with others and asking for help, we can definitely make the path more tolerable to get to the other side with grace.  The secret word is connection.

We don't have to like the storms in the moment, but let's use them for good and create the garden of greatness that we want to design in our life.  You deserve it!  
 
 
Embrace your greatness,

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. You should arrive around 10:30 a.m. to secure your spot. You can share a 20 second commercial during our meetings. You can apply to speak at our member's showcase, some restrictions apply. You can post announcements for your products, services or events on our Facebook Business Page and participate in our LinkedIn Group page.

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.
