A Healthy Start To The Year
The first quarter of 2018 has come to an end and with it our very successful Wellness Series of programs and events which offered some great ideas for our members to implement in their personal and professional lives. The response to this series has been tremendous, resulting in increased membership and has brought us some great new Strategic Partnerships. This support will allow us to bring our members a more enhanced program series.
On April 24th we kicked off our Business Enhancement Series with a program titled “You Got That Client from Where?” Presenters were Sam Powell and Nykea Pippion McGriff, nationally acclaimed speakers that follow distinctly different paths when it comes to building their businesses, however, each do embrace volunteerism, leadership and community service. Sam focuses on her mobile office as she travels extensively, speaking throughout the country, but she is, however, able to maintain a very successful business with the assistance of only two additional team members. We all found Sam to be very witty and confident as she shared what she refers to as her “nuggets”, and she had us laughing as we learned about her dynamic approach to business.
Our other speaker, Nykea, holds strategic positions within her local Network, local Association, state Association and the National Association of REALTORS® and has found that through travelling with these organizations she has been able to make many contacts which have, of course, led to many good referrals. Her message was that as agents we all learn to tackle the local market but business can come from a much larger arena, so when you dream bigger your rewards can be that much larger. The program was held at Scuzzi’s from 12:00 to 2:30 pm and included lunch and a drink ticket for Happy Hour during which we were able to ask questions and get to know the speakers better. After that, a group of us headed on down to Night in Old San Antonio to show our how we “Fiesta!”
On May 5th our Race for the Cure team will be up and running (or walking if that is your speed). T-shirts for the event will be available and registration is now open. The number of cases of breast cancer continues to rise at a rapid pace, and I can personally name five past Women’s Council Presidents that have fought this disease, and that does not include all the members, spouses and family members that have also been affected. We are running in support of one another and to let others know that they are not alone in this struggle. Please be sure watch our Facebook page at Women’s Council of REALTORS® San Antonio for details.
Coming up on June 19th is a collaborative Network event which also includes Hill Country and Austin. We are bringing a well-known moderator to do an in-depth study of the book, “The Five Second Rule.” The program will, of course, be followed by some networking and fun as groups will be going to enjoy Schlitterbahn, shopping in Gruene of just casually floating down the river. We will round out the day with evening fun Two Ton Tuesdays at Gruene Hall. We are now arranging for room blocks for those who wish to spend the night.
On July 12th we are planning a “Hot Havana Nights” event to include an evening of mojitos, cigars, linen attire and a whole lot of fun! Stay tuned for the details.
