June 27th ~ RSFbpw Luncheon-Meeting
President's Message
Dear RSFBPW Ladies and guests:

Do you ever wonder how things would be different if you had made different choices in your life? Many of us in RSFbpw are self-employed and have made that jump from being accountable to someone else to being in our own business. it can be scary, but oh so rewarding. I just celebrated my 30th anniversary of working for myself and I wouldn't change a thing! Secret word is Leap! While the initial decision to leave my corporate job was incredibly scary at first, the benefits have far out weighed that fear. Here are a few benefits, no more going into the office everyday, no more rush hour traffic, and being able to work from home, and I earn more and spend less, I can work whenever I want, I have work-life balance, I can hand select my clients and best of all.... NO MORE DRAMA!

Being self employed isn't for everyone, it takes someone special who can handle the risk internally to put themselves out there to work hard, find their own clients and keep focused so you build a business you love. I love how our group is so supportive of each other and filled with experts in just about any field. Why not reach out this month and invite others you know who are unique and business owners, and invite them to visit our wonderful group. And, take advantage of the wealth of knowledge we all have as members.
We only have a few categories that are full with three members, so invite, invite, invite!!! Why not invite a few business connections to join you! Looking forward to a great meeting in June.

Our June Speaker
Self-Defense Skills to Protect Yourself Wherever You Go...

Debbie Love earned her first Black Belt in 2007 and by 2016 achieved her 4th Degree Black Belt and the title of Sensei. Throughout the last two decades of training, she was always the only woman in the room. With persistence, determination and courage she learned to use her small stature as an advantage against much larger, stronger opponents.

She founded Heads Up Karate & Self-Defense for Women offering a safe, comfortable, fun and intimidation-free space to learn kick ass skills. She'll tell her story and share techniques to protect yourself wherever you go.

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 Sarah@SarahMorganPhotography.com, or call 858-414-9646.
