 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  – Physical Activity

“Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it”
– Plato

The Small Business Today Magazine

 Book Review:  High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard

To reach high performance, you have to consider more than your individual passsions and efforts,
and you’ll have to go well beyond what you like, prefer, or naturally do well because, to be frank,
the world cares less about your strengths and personalty than about your service and meaningul
contributions to others.


By the end of this book, you will never again wonder what it really takes to success when starting
a new project at work or purusing a bold new dream. You will be empowered with a set of reliable
habits that research has shown to work with a broad range of personalities, and in a variety of
situations, to create extraordinary long-term results. You’ll feel a sense of vital energy and
confidence from knowing where to focus your energies and how to serve most effectively.

You’ll understand how to keep frowing after you’ve enjoyed initial success. If you’re ever thrown
into a situation where you must work or compete with others at the highest levels of achievement,
you’ll know exactly how to think and what to do.

This isn’t to say you will be superhman, or need to be. You have flaws; we all do. Yet at the end of
this book, you’ll say to yourself, “I finally know exactly how to be consistently at my best. I’m
confident in my ability to figure things out, and fully capable of ocercoming adversity on the path
of success, for the rest of my life”

Get and read this book! Go to



 Have a healthy, happy, prosperous networking week!
