March 19, 2020 ~ RSFbpw LUNCHEON
PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Dear RSFbpw Ladies and guests:

On March 17, we’ll be celebrating St Patrick’s Day. St Patrick's Day is usually a fun holiday to celebrate Ireland’s Patron Saint. Did you know the world’s first St Patrick’s Day parade was held in New York City in 1762 and continues to this day? And did you know that the traditional meal is Corned Beef and cabbage! I personally hope not to see either on the menu any time soon! Just saying!
 
Then there is the phrase, Luck of the Irish, which derives from when Irish and Irish Americans became wealthy during the early mining days. Of course, it carried with it a certain tone of derision, as if to say, that only by sheer luck (as opposed to brains), could they succeed. I think luck has very little to do with how successful we are in business. You make your own ‘luck’ through planning, focusing and working on your goals. When you are doing the right things in your business, business will come to you.
 
And then March 21 st signals the the beginning of Spring. Spring is generally a time for spring cleaning, and studies have shown that a clean home makes people happier. Springtime is also a good time to clean up after the winter by welcoming clean, fresh air back into our homes. If truth be told, I spend most of my days with the backyard door open as we love fresh and crisp air, no matter what the season.
 
Spring cleaning is also the perfect time to get rid of stuff and to reorganize and adjust your office or work space. Secret word is green. There are several charities around that will pick up your unwanted ‘stuff’ and don’t overlook the special ‘buy nothing’ pages on social media – you probably have a neighbor with the mindset that ‘your rubbish is her treasure’.
 
Happy Spring Cleaning and I look forward to seeing you all at our meeting on March 19 th

Be sure to register for our March 19th luncheon no later than 5pm on Monday, March 16th! Late registrations are not honored.

Your contact and business information is placed in our directory, as well as on our website in the membership section. 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 half-table. 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. 
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.
