January 16, 2020 ~ RSFbpw LUNCHEON
Dear RSFbpw Ladies and guests:

I am truly honored to be the new president of RSFbpw. I’ve seen our group grow with fabulous professionals who share a passion for expanding their network and advancing women in their careers. It’s this sharing and caring that has had me develop my own relationships within the group.
As we enter the New Year, many of us will be doing so with great intentions of making 2020 a super bumper year! Have you thought of your 2020 goals, or are you thinking of the New Year as a time to make new resolutions? We can wish and hope our goals become reality, but without a plan our chances of success are almost nonexistent. The first thing we should do after making a New Year’s resolution, or after you have set a goal is to create the process; which is the plan to allow you to actually achieve that goal. In short, don’t make the goal a New Year’s resolution, rather make your plan the New Year resolution. Secret word is goal. Do that and you will have a great plan going forward through the year. 
Wishing each of you beautiful ladies a healthy and wonderfully successful 2020!
I look forward to seeing you at our meeting on January 16th!
Be sure to register for our January luncheon no later than 5 p.m., Monday, January 13th!

Beppie Seinen Mostert
RSFBPW President

Our January Luncheon Speaker
Solving family homelessness - One family, one community at a time.  

Learn how Solutions for Change solves family homelessness through a 1,000-day transformative program, creating a permanent solution for families and communities.  Chris Megison is a social entrepreneur, co-founder and CEO of Solutions for Change.

Since 1993 Chris has designed and led numerous free market social purpose initiatives and innovations that have solved homelessness permanently for over 4,500 people. His trademark impact is his “get up, suit up and show up” model of leadership in which he leads from the front, a style of servant leadership that he learned as a U.S. Marine.

A dynamic and passionate advocate and protector of the American way of life, Chris’ core values refuse to let the homeless and our communities succumb to the trap of systemic dependencies that surround people in deep poverty today.

A servant warrior up against what he describes as a hidden system within the fabric of our human-service culture that he calls “The Churn”, Chris fundamentally rejects the notion that the best America can do for its poor and homeless is to subsidize their existence.

Solutions for Change is the recipient of RSFbpw 2019 Charity of the Year.

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 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.

Be sure to post your announcement on our Facebook Business Page. Thank you. 
Quick Links
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 cheerfully 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.   
If you are interested in becoming a member of our women's Rancho Santa Fe, Business and Professional Women's Association, you must attend two meetings as a visitor, then apply for membership. We have 3 members per category, and if the category is not filled, you can submit the application to one of our board members for consideration. If the category is filled, we encourage you to continue to attend our meetings and network with our members. You can apply when the position opens.
