Provoke or Speed Significant Action
THIS IS WHY I AM GREAT
The dynamo that is Terry Farruk got the meeting off to an energetic (does he do anything, any other way?) start, having everybody claim their traits that make them and their business GREAT. Some of us actually shared it aloud with the group, but everybody was thinking about it.
One of the things I love about our group is the excellence of our members. Our real-estate superstar Seth O'Byrne welcomed everybody with his showboat, showcasing the various awards he and his team have received for being awesome. Check out the pictures online.
We had some fantastic guests visit us today -
- Kelly Collins - Physical Trainer
- Greg Wynn - Loan Officer
- Patricia Mills - Senior Loan Consultant
All three submitted applications and we look forward to them joining the group!
Several members also had some good news to share with the group:
- Barbara Lukehart is celebrating a new grandchild. Woo hoo!
- Llewellyn, our Agile Software Development Coach, is on leave, but his Digigirlz trip to Denmark is going really well. Also, his session at the the recent Agile Open conference in Seattle was a great success.
- Patty also shared a nice thank-you note from IRC, one of the groups that our chapter sponsored over the past Christmas season.
Catalyst: provoke or speed significant change or action
Despite some initial minor technical difficulties, Rich Yumul talked about his company, Sage Tree Solutions and a recent project they just completed, the web site for Mental Health Systems. The case study is a concrete example of which shows how Rich helps his clients:
- Get more leads
- Sell more products
- Provide better service to more people
On top of the web site's fresh new design, the improvements helped Mental Health Systems streamline their business, making them more efficient.
Assumptive Tips - Even though the contest was just for this week, keep on tipping (assumptively)! It's a great technique to easily introduce members to people that need help.
Elections - Elections are coming up! We passed around surveys for the members, to see how people are interested in getting involved. The next step will be nominations. I strongly encourage everybody to get involved to help make our chapter a powerful force in helping build up each other's businesses.

I know I've shared it already, but it's a really good one:
You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.
