Our Next RSFBPW Meeting
President's Message:

Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests,
It's "back to school" for kids, and even though most of us adults aren't going back to school, it doesn't mean we never stop seeking education and knowledge.  And when it comes to "reading, writing and arithmetic",  some business people don't care to delve into the writing or arithmetic part, but we can ALL keep reading as one of our daily habits and practices.    
"Readers are leaders" and there are TONS of amazing books out there for business building, sales, mindset, and balance.  It's hard to narrow it down to the best books, but here are 3 of my favorites that I recommend to my clients:  
The One Thing -  by Gary W. Keller
This book is so freeing!  It truly helps the reader dial it down to the ONE thing that must get done today to make a positive domino effect throughout the rest of the day.  
   Switch On Your Brain by Dr. Caroline Leaf
Mindset isn't a mysterious woo-woo thing.  It truly is scientific on how our subconscious and conscious thoughts CREATE the feelings, actions, and results in our life.  Changing our thoughts and creating positive neuropathways can dramatically change our results! 
The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks 
 Conquer your hidden fears and take life to the next level.  This book shares how to go beyond your internal limits, release outdated fears and learn a whole new set of powerful skills and habits to liberate your authentic greatness.  The secret word is read. 

 We have 4 months left in 2017!  Let's make it strong, purposeful, and powerful in both our personal and business life.  And feel free to share YOUR favorite book on our RSFBPW facebook page: 
Change your thoughts, Change your life,

Gina Ruby, RSFBPW President

Our Speaker:  Von Marie May - RSF Historical Society

  We're excited to have Von Marie May,  
            author of "Rancho Santa Fe".
The exclusive community of Rancho Santa Fe is truly the town the railroad built. Though it began as a failed attempt to grow lumber for its railroad ties, the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railway soon transformed the area into an exclusive community offering "gentlemen's estates."  
Among the first to sign on were Hollywood's reigning couple, Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford. Santa Fe officials hired the best engineers, architects, landscape architects, and naturalists to affect a utopian community. It was not long before Rancho Santa Fe was home to celebrities such as Bing Crosby, Howard Hughes, and astronaut Wally Schirra. 
We're looking forward to learning more about RSFHS, a nonprofit organization andits mission "To preserve the history of Rancho Santa Fe in order to connect us to our Past, Present and Future"!

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 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.
