The days are about to start cooling off, football is right around the corner, and before you know it, we will be hearing Christmas music on every radio station. I think I can wait a few months for the Christmas music, but I am getting very excited for our dinner meeting events, golf tournament, and our SME Live event.
This year is already shaping up to have some outstanding events and speakers and I couldn’t be more excited to represent SME as your board president this year!
A few years ago, as I joined a new-member orientation meeting, past SME President Jeff Martin gave our small group some of the best sales and marketing advice I have ever received. “Pick up the SME directory, find someone you don’t know, and ask them to go to lunch. Go learn about their business and what makes them successful.”
Since I started using this method, my circle of friendships has grown exponentially, and I am continually amazed at how many amazing people we have in our organization. That said, I am excited for our membership to continue grow not only in numbers, but in friendships over the next year.
I look forward to seeing you all at our meeting on September 10th!”
