Congratulations to us all for making it through the first half of the year with grace and style. I wanted to take this opportunity to remind each and every one of you to take some time for yourself this month. As the saying goes..."You can't pour from an empty cup."  

I hope all of you beautiful women will make your list of what fills up your cup, and then go out and do it for yourself and every month moving forward.

Our July 28 Speaker

Sotera Anderson
Lemon Law Boss Lady 

Sotera Anderson is a local attorney who has been practicing law since 2000. She is known as the Lemon Law Boss Lady and helps California consumers get refunds for their crappy cars. She is committed to helping consumers who have unknowingly purchased defective vehicles to navigate through the lemon law process successfully.
 
Sotera attended the University of Southern California while also working 20-30 hours in a law firm. She then moved to beautiful San Diego to attend law school. Throughout undergraduate school and law school, Sotera worked in a large law firm with offices across the country. Upon passing the bar, the firm hired her as an attorney. She spent seven years at that firm as a young lawyer learning how to litigate cases defending the nation’s largest generic drug manufacturer in cases throughout the United States. Wanting to have more of a work life balance, Sotera moved on to a smaller firm where she spent years defending car manufacturers in lemon law cases. When she was not defending product manufacturers, she was serving her country as a member of the California Air National Guard. She spent 20 years as a Judge Advocate (JAG) where her duties included estate planning for military members.
 
After Sotera had her wonderful daughter, Sophia, her priorities in life changed and she found herself craving a law practice that made her feel like she was making a difference in the lives of the people in her community. She left the law firm to open her own office where she now is able to make a difference in people’s lives every day which gives her purpose. She is passionate about helping those in her community.

Beppie Mostert at (858) 243-0505 email her at Beppie Mostert

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

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.

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 Director of Membership Sandi Marvich at MSMARVICH@GMAIL.COM or call 619-886-9568.
