 Networking Tip of the Week

“First you have to be visible in the community. You have to get out there and connect with people. I’s not called net-sitting or net-eating. It’s called networking. You have to work at it.”
– Ivan Misner


Wellness Tip of the Week  – Ear Massage

“Have you ever noticed when you have a full-body massage the masseuse will finish by massaging
your ears? It’s called Auriculotherapy, the reflexology of the ear. Massaging the external, protruding
portion of the ear connects nerves in your ear to the brain and sends reflexes to the distal parts of the
body for increasing health, lowering pain, and reducing addiction (food, drug, etc.). I give myself an
ear massage every day. Try it, you may like it.

 Book Review:  They Call Me “Pops” by Rod “The Storyteller” White

This is one of the most inspiring stories I have even read. Having Rod as a friend and coach for
speaking and storytelling makes it even more personal. This is Rod’s “Fitness Journey” after
the age of 60 through diet, weight training, cardio exercise, and focus. The reason it is included
in a newsletter about networking is because health is a major aspect of the perception of you as
a person. How fit you are creates the first image of you, even before words are spoken.


Most people are called “Pops” because of their age and that would be appropriate for Rod too,
except when you meet him you would never know he is 62 years old. The reason he is called
“Pops” is because his son Chris, who owns a fitness center called “Fit With Chris”, calls him
“Pops” and when Chris conviced his father, Rod, to join him in becoming fit and later to even
compete is body building championships, the rest of Chris’s team began calling him “Pops”

Rod shares everything – from the time whenhe was overweight and lacked energy to the
inspirtation from his son, Chris, to the struggle to beccome healthy, to developing nutritious
meals and finally to win body-building championships.

Rod says, “I was so ashamed of my stomach, that while watching television, I would cover my
belly with a pillow. My wife noticed and began to snatch the pillow away from me. Even though
she was doing it playfully, I knew she was making a statement; “own it or do something about it.”


 Have a healthy, happy, prosperous networking week!
