Hello Lovely Ladies.

Where has the time gone? Just a few short months ago we were excited for Spring and Summer and here we are…. Ready for Fall! September is Back to School month, and I know of so many students who are super happy to be going back to school, as they have really missed their friends and teachers.

While each month has special meaning, September is also Self Improvement Month, bringing a renewed vigor and fresh start. Self-help has many forms, some of which include setting personal and professional goals; invest in yourself; learn a new activity or skill and implement a new habit. What can you add to this list?

As we wind down from a fun summer, it’s time to gear up for some of the busiest months of the year. At RSFbpw we have our Member Showcase in October, while in November, secret word is fall, we are hoping to bring back our Holiday Bazaar. This is a marvelous opportunity to advertising your business to our members so sign up as soon as we confirm our November location. Then of course, we have our Holiday event in December. Can you believe it, we are already thinking and talking of the Holidays?

I am really excited to be seeing you all at our next meeting. Be sure to register now!

Hugs to you all

Beppie Seinen-Mostert
RSFBPW President
Our September Speaker- Simone Talarico Ross
Your Business Online: Your Attitude is more Important than Your Aptitude
Digital Marketing Coach Simone Talarico Ross, founder of the L.E.A.D.E.R method and the ONLINE VISIBILITY ROADMAP retreat, will share tips and techniques for marketing in the digital world, along with strategies to conquer our mental approach and attitude toward it. Many business owners and entrepreneurs see social media platforms and digital marketing as a necessary evil, triggering avoidance and a defeatist mindset.
You will learn:
  • Powerful Social Media Strategies to teach you the RIGHT steps to use in the current digital marketing environment;
  • Mindset Tips to help you DEFINE your relationship with Social Media and take control of your digital marketing.
Simone demystifies Marketing and Simplifies Technology as a Digital Marketing Coach and Mindset Mentor. She works with coaches and consultants who struggle with marketing their business effectively and want to attract clients online consistently without getting overwhelmed in the process.

Her bite-sized teaching, paired with mindset practices helps entrepreneurs really implement the right strategies online, and bring the clients they want to work with. With her guidance, entrepreneurs are able to take back control of their Marketing and be the true LEADERs their business need!

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 or call 858-414-9646
