Issue 3, January 18, 2015

Do you remember the first day of school when you were 6 years old?  I sure do.

–It was an unfamiliar place; I got lost a number of times.

–There were a bunch of new kids that I didn’t know.

–Authority figures like teachers, the principal and cooks.  Everybody telling you where to go, what to do, and that you ‘aren’t doing it right’.  I wanted my mommy.

‘Life experiences’ like that can be overwhelming for many kids, and downright traumatic for others.  At the very least, it puts a person a little on edge.

Even now, it’s always tough being the new guy.  Whether it’s a new job, starting a workout program at the gym, or meeting the potential in-laws.

–This Wednesday, we will welcome 6 new members into the SBMC family:  David Northrup, Tiffany Mackay, Dal Beggs, Debra Hollis, Judy Goode and Bob Cox.

I am charging our members with the responsibility of meeting our new inductees.  Find out who they are, and what they do.  You may find some common ground with them.  You may find they can help you with your business.  Or, maybe they offer a service that you’ve been looking for.

Every one of these new members are excited to be starting a new chapter of their lives with SBMC.  Getting a potential member to come to a meeting and then commit to membership is the hard part.  It is up to ALL OF US to help them feel a part of this organization and to get them involved in our activities.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
