August 2015 – President’s Message on – Connect and Collaborate

I can’t believe it is already August. The summer is quickly speeding by and I trust everyone is enjoying the hot weather that we have been having. I certain have. I complain so bitterly when it is cold outside that I have to enjoy the heat when it finally arrives.

I hope everyone enjoyed the July event at the Marconi Center. Nancy Morris, our guest speaker, taught us how to separate our goals from our “wants”.

Through-out the summer, I make a concerted effort to connect with friends that I haven’t seen in a while. There is no better way to connect with friends than sitting outside on the deck, eating food cooked on the barbecue and being regaled by stories of my friends’ adventures for the past couple of months.

Therefore, it is only natural that the theme for August is “Connect and Collaborate”. If you attended the January WBN event on Building Business Brilliance, we learned how to effectively use social media in our businesses and I proudly joined the Twitter group and got my Twitter handle of @lawyer_mgreen. At this month’s program event, we will learn how to network without boundaries in Tweet Talk: Grow relationships and your network with Twitter.  Click here to sign up and learn how to make Twitter work to your advantage.

Enjoy the summer and continue to stay connected!
