"Investment Challenges We All Face"

We all work very hard in our respective businesses to make money…
then what? We plan to discuss some of the challenges we all face when it comes to investing, including certain human behavior and psychological hurdles we should all be aware of. We will cover some of the basics, including various strategies we utilize and rely on as we strive for a positive long term result. You will find us both to be very approachable and enthusiastic, and we’ve been known to get pretty excited about our vocation. We will keep it fun, light and entertaining… but very informative. During and after, it will be our pleasure to  entertain any questions you or your colleagues may have.

What Has Coaching Done for Me?

You heard from a leading coaching company in November, and many of you had questions.

So, we decided to bring in shop owners who have joined some of these programs to give insight on belonging to a structured program and the benefits they have enjoyed.

We will have a panel of members that have been through a program to help answer questions on coaching companies and the benefits of belonging to a company.

We will have shops that have used companies such as:

     · Elite Worldwide Bob Cooper

     · ATI

     · Management Success

     · The Institute Cecil Bullard

     · ESI Maylan Newton

We hope to see all of the shops that attended in November come back and get answers to any questions you might have. Even if you misssed the November meeting, you will benefit from this one.
