Hey Everyone, Before I go, I have one Business and a few people that I would like to thank.
that they would have food that I thought would be appropriate for my Reunion. I was so frustrated by the process that Kim had to calm me down and start the process over.
Once she did, she was able to put together a menu that was more than suitable and within my budget. Paige did a terrific job of delivering all of that food and the rest by herself.
Even though my Reunion was not what I had hoped it would be, without Kim and Paige's help, it would have just about been a total and complete disaster. Thank you Famous Dave's for your help.
The first person I would like to thank is Leanna Bronni. They say you never forget your first. I remember that on this day the weather was like it was on Wednesday when after the introductions, Leanna came up to me and placed her order. Although it's been awhile since I have seen her, I will never forget how she broke the ice for me within the Group and became my First Customer. My thanks to her.
The next person that I would like to thank is Laura. What most of you don't know is that awhile back I told Laura that I thought she ran this Group better than a California Group. If any you know about Californians, then you know they love their Networking Groups about as much as they love Gluten Free and Organic Foods.
I believe then and well as now that Laura manages this Group better than anyone that I have seen. Regardless of whether or not I join another Networking Group or not, I don't think that I will ever see one that is better managed than this one. I think every one ought to take the opportunity to thank her. I know that without her nothing that I have done in this Group would have been possible. Thank you Laura.
The next person that I would like to thank is Lisa Vilella. What most of you don't know about Lisa is that she helped me to stay in the Group past my first year. I remember one day outside of the firehouse that things weren't going well for me within the Group and I felt lost. Lisa had come up to me and said a few words. That lead to a much longer conversation later on where I told her about my concerns about the Group and the like. While Lisa didn't convince me to stay, what she said did convince me to stay beyond my first year. Without her, I wouldn't be standing here today giving this speech. Thank you Lisa.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone that I have come in contact with as a result of the Group. I like to feel that I have learned something from everyone of you whether it is good, bad or indifferent. That's something I can take with me as I move forward with my life.
Thank you everyone One and All!!
