PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Love picture

Hello Ladies, and welcome to February 2022!

Last month I spoke about how fast time was flying by, and January sure stayed on course; I cannot believe how quickly February came! My quote for you this month is from Lily Tomlin who said: "The Road to success is always under construction."

I love this quote for February because there is still A LOT going on out there right now. There are obstacles and detours we are all navigating that can make our goals seem like impossible destinations. We can learn to view problems and roadblocks as opportunities and find solutions and new pathways to success. It's clear that there will never be a more perfect time to work hard towards our goals than today. Forward progress, however small, is progress nonetheless.

Take some time to look at the 2022 goals you set for yourself last month (or make those goals now. It's not too late). What can you celebrate? Did you include personal goals? Even if it’s taking more walks, drinking more water, meditating, or whatever you do that fuels your soul. 

It is so important to make time for self love to keep a healthy mindset! Which is a perfect secret word for February ("self love”). Let's continue to support one another by discussing our personal and professional goals and staying curious about how we can support our members. As we develop long-term friendships with our members, together we reach our full potential!

We have a fun meeting planned for you in February. AND we are in person! See you all at the February meeting at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club on Thursday, February 17. Remember to invite a guest who will love being invited by you! Wear red, pink or white if you dare!!

Warmly, Your 2022 President, 
Jill Harris

Contact Beppie Mostert to schedule a time to visit the warehouse, donate items or to volunteer.

Laura Lavoie is the City Director of Humble Design San Diego, a nonprofit serving families, individuals, and veterans leaving homelessness by transforming their empty houses into personalized, professionally-designed homes filled with furniture and home goods donated by the community. (Think HGTV for people who need it!) More than a makeover, it’s a start over. And, it works. Nationally, nearly 50% of people who leave homelessness return to the shelters or the streets within a year. But 97% of Humble San Diego clients remain in their homes. Simply put, Humble Design changes lives for good. www.humbledesign.org

Membership Benefits
As a Member of RSFBPW:

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. Any questions about membership, Contact Sarah Morgan - Director of Membership at Sandi Marvich at MSMARVICH@GMAIL.COM or call 619-886-9568.
