Monthly Meeting March 8, 2017

Please join us Wednesday, March 8th at 11:45 pm at Lina's Restaurant for our monthly meeting.

This month we welcome guest speaker:,

Joe Pellegrino
Certified Professional Life Coach

I am an author, speaker, entrepreneur and Certified Life Coach. Unleashed creative thinking is the heartbeat of my service. My specialty is coaching individuals - specifically men – to identify purpose in their business and personal lives. Once that purpose is realized, I motivate them to put it into action.

Business owners seek me out to bring a fresh, experienced perspective to the challenges and opportunities they face. Professionally I am called a "consultant," but the rigid confines of that word sets a limited precedent for what I can do for you. Therefore I am a "Dash" enhancer. A “Dash” enhancer is someone who enhances the time you have on this earth, the time between your birth date and your death date. The dash!

I also facilitate Roundtable coaching sessions where group of business people buy a seat at the table and we all work together to grow and go! New groups are forming now.

To learn more about Joe, visit http://notjustanaveragejoe.com/

Every month we host a Meet & Greet prior to the start of the meeting which runs about 30 minutes. So the meeting will officially start at 12:15 pm.

We also encourage all of you to bring along your promotional items. We hope everyone utilizes our chamber to help create new opporunties for their own business!
