Due to the arrival of Iselle and Julio we will be rescheduling the August 11 luncheon to August 18 at Noon.  Please RSVP by Thursday, August 14 if you are able to attend.  If you have already RSVPd for the 11th please let us know if you will be able to make this new date.


Becoming a Rainmaker is the single most important skill you can learn to increase your income, economic independence, and control over your work schedule and style.  You can serve the clients you choose, in the setting you choose, and delegate to others the work you would rather not do.  Rainmaking can help you enjoy early retirement, a part-time schedule, more vacation, and more time for your family and community.  And it can be done in a way that fits you and your style.

So what are you waiting for?  Come find out what is needed to become a rainmaker.  Be ready to "lean in" on this discussion, make a plan that will work for you, and provide support to help others.  It's not easy, you'll need commitment and work to make it happen, but it's very rewarding!
