Mike Deibler started us off this morning by reminding us how important it is to stretch each day. From the groans we all made, apparently it's something we need to do more often. (In fact we'd like to invite you to take a moment right now and stand up, interlace your fingers behind your back and lift your hands away from your back)
Feel better? Great!
Now put your hands together and clap for our new member, David Keefe. David is a mortgage officer with Integrity First. He has over 9 years of experience and we are pleased to welcome him into our group.
Talk it out
Our society today tends to look for quick solutions. When it comes to depression, we use the same mentality and look for an instant solution with a pill. Our psychologist, Dr. John McConnell, showed us today while pills do provide relief from depression, the relapse rate is significantly higher after stopping the pills. Traditional talk therapy allows you to actually address the psychological issues at cause instead of just dealing with the symptoms.
Our group - is a very very very fine group.
Rich and Llewellyn gave us a preview of the talk they will be giving about our chapter this coming Monday at the regional LeTip Board of Directors seminar. Some of the great things about our group include:
- Warm ups
- Weekly Meeting Awareness Chart
- Llewellyn's LeTip LeMonday's
- Meeting Recap
- Internet Marketing (Website, Twitter, Meetup.com)
- Round Tables
- Big Tipper Program
- Continuous Improvement
We really appreciate how great our group has become and want to thank all the members for helping to build it up.

Something to think about:
To respond is positive, to react is negative
Have a great week!
Rich & Llewellyn
Today, in an effort to help our featured speaker (Dr. Matin, our chiropractor) drum up more business, we all stood on our chairs and saw who could hold the yoga 'tree' pose the longest. At the very end, our returning president, Rich Yumul turned out to be the most balanced in the competition. Hip hip hooray for Rich!
Coming in a close second was our first guest,
Louie was joined by two other fabulous guests,
We look forward to voting on all three guests' membership next Thursday.
Ana Meyers, our bookkeeper, showed off the new look for her business with her showboat table. Don't wait till April to get your books in order!
Living with pain
So many of us have learned to live with ever-present aches and pains that we have grown to accept as just being part of life. Today Dr. Shamim Matin, our new chiropractor, reminded us that pain is actually the way the body tells us that something is wrong and needs fixing. Dr. Matin is a specialist in orthopedic diagnostics - this training enables him to find the source of your aches and pains, and not just to simply treat the symptoms. Dr. Shamin shared several stories of patients who went years with pain, to finally find permanent relief after he correctly diagnosed and treated them.
If you currently experience pain that you are 'just living with', give Dr. Shamin a call (619) 299-1200.
Just a reminder - this month's big tipper is Carol Lord, our marketing expert. Carol setup a special promotion this month of an hour of free consulting for each new client referred. You are free to use that hour for yourself or donate it as well.
20 Tips this week
Next week we are looking forward to hearing from John McConnell, our Psychologist and Ana Meyers, our bookkeeper!
Thought for the week
You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.
