Resiliency through this Pandemic!

Dr. Erika Pimentel was extremely encouraging! As a nutritionist and personal trainer, she was bummed at first because her business was stagnate, but she developed an online presence and now is doing personal training via Zoom and meeting with clients about nutrition via Zoom! Everyone seemed encouraged by her words and applauded her for her efforts during this pandemic! She is a member of the South Naperville Women’s Chapter in Naperville, IL.

Redondo Beach Business Marketer helps his Chapter network and bring in business!

I’d like to showcase Brian Fife of Easy Alfred. He has been really on top of other networking events to find the Chapter business. He has been attending meetings at the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce regularly. The Chamber is well connected, and they created BINGE NETWORKING as a source for the Chapter to stay connected with the South Bay. It is free and fun.

Brian and another like-minded entrepreneur created a quick networking source called Local Links Adapt & Thrive. The purpose is for people to come together once a week and be part of the entrepreneurial community exchanging ideas about their current expansion. They are learning tips while being heard in break-out sessions. They always take something away from the meetings. They have also met some really nice people through this process and really appreciate Brian’s efforts to expand the Chapter in these professional environments.

Brian also got a member paired up with his Local Links partner Matt Quirk. They completed a livestream on Facebook the other day for about 30 minutes. They talked about her organizing business and what she could be doing differently and how she plans to move forward. It was a great talk.

Because she was on the Local Links meeting regularly, she reconnected with Rebecca Chere, an Alumni of Leads Club and current owner of Organically at Your Best. Rebecca invited her to do a Virtual Presentation for her organizing business. She created a 7-day Survival Guide
that can be used weekly to manage in-home activities in a successful way. She’s had so much fun with all this. Thank You Brian Fife! He is a member of the Redondo Beach Coed Chapter in Redondo Beach, CA.

Every Small Business is Essential!

This new big word “Essential” is being used endlessly by our Govt. to determine who gets to work.  While I respect and understand the need for some type of policy around the dangerous virus, I just don’t like a profession being labeled like this.  Especially when the majority of businesses being labeled this way are our small business community.I truly believe all of our small business people are essential but didn’t really know how to articulate it.  Then I read an article by one of my favorite people, Joshua Becker, titled “Becoming Essential“.   I hope you enjoy his perspective and thoughts as much as I did.

Leads Club Member suffers from Covid-19

Greetings,

There are so many stories and theories going around about this disease, here is something that is close to home.   To the best of my knowledge, at this time, Gregg Garfield is the only Leads Club Member I’ve heard of that contracted the Virus.  While his story is dire, there is a positive ending in that he survived.

I know our Members are very supportive and interested in Members and Chapters throughout the system, so I decided to share this with you.  Gregg has been a stellar Member since 2003 and always had a smile and enthusiasm for his fellow Members.  Leads Club is also a client of his, so we were devastated when we heard he was hospitalized for 64 days upon return from a Ski trip to Italy earlier this year.

Here is a link to his story and a  “Go Fund Me” page.   It’s not an easy read, but it does show how devastating this virus is and how strong Gregg must have been to survive.  I know you will join us in sending him your healing thoughts and prayers.

Please be safe.

Respectfully,

Lisa Bentson, Leads Club CVO

Non Profit business Members are welcome in Leads Club!

Please allow me to introduce you to one of the most driven and passionate advocates for Veterans that I have ever met.  Keith Field has been driving Veterans to appointments for over 15 years and as he saw the need grow he decided to start “Serving Veterans”.  He has large dreams and goals for helping Veterans nationwide and is in the rollout phase as we speak.

The Lake Houston Chapter of Leads Club has been a wonderful resource for him in launching “Serving Veterans”,  please check out his personal story here:

Serving  Veterans  A Servant Ministry to Those Who Have Served.   POB 84803 Pearland, TX  77584  832.220.9253

April 13, 2020           

Leads Club Management,

To whom it may concern,

My name is Keith, and I am a co-founder of Serving Veterans, Inc.  During 2019, I was introduced to Leads Club in Atascocita, Tx, when my organization needed embroidered shirts for a veteran employment event.  While the work was excellently done by Esther Ross, a more important connection was made with the chapter of the Leads Club of which she is a leader.

Her invitation to attend a meeting and her follow-up offer for us to become their group’s non-profit member has resulted in our being able to utilize the tax accounting, internet website development, and legal counsel members.  In addition, this organization has given us the opportunity to refer people we meet to members of this group who provide services to the veterans we interact with, which is a business referral that benefits the chapter.

As our organization continues to grow, the range of services available through the Leads Club members to people who volunteer with us, donate to us, and who are part of our outreach to veterans every day, will see how the people who provide us with services are members of the Leads Club chapters.

My thanks to all your people for having a heart for non-profits, and I trust that other chapters will take this advantage to be involved with those who are the often unsung heroes in our communities.

Keith Field, Transportation Services   Serving Veterans, Inc.

“Serving Veteran’s is “Lake Houston’s Non-Profit Category in their Chapter.  Did you know that Leads Club welcomes one Non-Profit Membership per Chapter, and waives their fees.  They are however responsible for any meal or venue fees and they must submit formal paperwork showing their official nonprofit status, such as a  501-C3 or similar along with their application.

I can think of no better time than now to support one of your local Non-Profits.  During the Covid 19 outbreak, nonprofits are feeling the strain everywhere.  Knowing that Leads Club Members are also active in their communities, this should be an easy category to fill.  Feel free to contact our office for more information.
