President's Weekly Letter, Champions SoCal BNI

Wooooooo, CHAMPIONS!

Today's meeting was intimate. Only one non-Champion graced our presence today...George Varela from the Business Connection chapter. I believe that the Champions may be saving the visitors for later in the contest which kicked off today! Let' not wait, people and remember, visitors buy! I can tell you first hand that I bring the energy every week(as do most of us)! Let's share this positive energy with visitors! Please follow Mr. Sando's specific ask during his EC moment today and invite one or more visitors to next week's meeting that fit into our top three categories...Family Law, Electrician, or Plumber. Several Champions were MIA today...we heard from Doug and Clay. Chuck, Jody, and Joe Lynch, we miss you when you are gone!

As I was saying...

The theme of the EC Moment centered on the rules and scoring opps for the contest. Remember the 1-2-1s and invite, invite, invite!

Notable Keynoters:

Ela Corcoran and Richard Lane spoke on their professions today. My greatest take away from Ela's talk was that we should choose nutritional supplements based upon their anti oxidant and alkaline content. These two items have a host of health benefits that Ela discussed.

I have purchased computer equipment from Richard and gave a testimonial during stand and deliver. Richard speaks "tech" and English and translates quite well! I thought that Richard's premise of "what does it cost you to ignore your IT?" was well thought out and clever.

Please schedule a one-to-one with each of these professionals (especially the green team) :)). Both can assist you in living a better life!

Chapter Biz:

Our VP and Sheriff (did you know it is tax season?), Greg Beck reviewed our progress in certian key categories.

Referrals average month-124, March 2011 156
one-to-ones 1435 YTD...way exceeding our goals!
Visitors 65 YTD...need to invite, invite, invite!
TYFCB $353,873 YTD...on pace to reach our goal!

I'm guessing the game will help us surpass these numbers for April and May
