MONDAY MEMO
Our Mission: Promote economic growth of the business community.
President's Message
One of my hobbies is writing. A couple of years ago, in an attempt to improve that skill, I enrolled in an online writing course. One of the biggest takeaways I had from that course was that the more you narrow your field of focus, the more your audience will grow. In other words, your audience should not be "everyone."

I ran across an interesting article about business blogging that talks about that very thing, as well as several other tips to make blogging an effective tool for your business. If you're interested in this easy read, it's posted here on our web site : http://bit.ly/BusinessBlogsLV

It's a good reminder to take advantage of every tool available to market your business, and to always be aware of your audience and direct your words specifically to them.

This email has lots of great info - scroll down so you won't miss a thing! I hope to see you at this week's mixer and at next Tuesday's Leadership Lewisville graduation luncheon!

We are, as always, better (and stronger) together !!
