D ear RSFBPW Ladies and guests:

I hope everyone is enjoying our beautiful San Diego weather and all the fabulous things we can do in our wonderful city. You can always find something new to do every weekend!

Even though I no longer have kids in school, August is a month I associate with back-to-school and getting things ready for the last few months of the year. It's a great time to revisit the goals you set earlier in the year. You can see where you stand and what you have left to accomplish; take the time to make adjustments to stay on track through the end of the year. Why not take an afternoon by yourself and go to the beach with your materials and reset your goals? Be clear about what you have and haven't accomplished this year. Secret word is fashion. Make a list of what needs to change or improve and map out what the last 5 months are going to look like. I love to write out my vision and use lots of pictures on my goal board.

If someone walked into your office, would they know what your dreams are? If your answer is "no," plaster pictures of your goals all over your house/office so everyone knows and encourages you toward your vision.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at our fabulous August Fashion show. Stay cool!

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. Any questions about membership, Contact Sarah Morgan at, or call 858-414-9646.
