Our Next RSFBPW Meeting
President's Message:

Dear RSFBPW Members and Guests:

 Welcome to the Dog Days of Summer!  Barbeques, picnics and family vactions are all on the calendar this month.  Living in San Diego provides so many opportunities to enjoy the sun and surf!  We have some of the most beautiful beaches and places to play.  La Jolla Shores, Cabrillo National Monument, Coronado and the  Del, Sea World, The Zoo and of course the Del Mar Racetrack and fireworks for the 4th of July!! 

My hubby and I just got back from a trip to the Midwest to visit family.  It brought back so many memories of my childhood.  Watching kids run through the sprinklers, going fishing and having my brother clean and cook the fish for us, sitting around the campfire and toasting marshmellows for smores, kids playing with sparklers and seeing the fireflys.  It reminded me of a much simpler time.  Secret word is Hat. Why not take some time this month to reach out to some friends amd family and reminisce about fun memories from your past.  It was truly a blessing for us and I'm sure you'll find it to be the same for you!

Don't forget to wear your favorite hat to our meeting  this month.  Prizes will be given for most creative and a few other category.

RSFBPW President

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.
