there is life after Tax Day. The majority of the members of LeTip Chester County East met for the weekly breakfast, even our accountant, Don Meyer from JBND Tax Books (www.jbndtaxbooks.com). In fact, several members personally expressed their gratitude for his assistance with their 2012 tax returns and gave testimonials to recommend his accounting services to the rest of the group.
The meeting began with our speaker of the week, Greg Cazillo, our chapter's web designer (www.cazillo.com). Greg showed us some "before and after" website designs to help us see how he can improve site navigation and help people who visit the site to easily find what they are looking for. First, potential customers need to find our websites, and Greg reminded us of the importance of continuing to feed fresh content into our sites in order to rank higher in web searches. Once someone finds us, our websites could have great information about products or services, but if it's too difficult for site visitors to find the information they want, they'll give up and take their business somewhere else. Greg is highly skilled in creating websites that are "findable" and easy to use. This is what we want, so that visitors will stay, read, click, and connect with us.
Since April 16 was the third Tuesday of the month, we also heard visitation reports from many members of the group. The better we know each other and can speak about what everyone does, the easier it is to Tip each other and find ways to help grow all of our businesses. We can put "Dollars in our Pockets" and also feel good about helping each other.

LeTipCCE was a captive audience to Claudia Roemer, the financial adviser at Wells Fargo. Her candid and down to the roots of retirement planning talk was so easy to understand. Many of us see the charts of how we may need so much in the bank to retire, and become dismayed. But Claudia's approach to retirement planning is very easy: just start---now! Any amount, any contribution, and your nest egg will grow. Her compassion to the average person and their financial hardships in this economy is enlightening. Her easy to follow plan starts with any amount you can afford to set aside, pay yourself first, and be consistent. She is patient and direct, and would be a great asset to anyone who has the need to start their financial future plans. Her guidance will have you relaxed and ready, knowing retirement is very tangible!
Spring is a great time to grow your gardens...and your business. There are several popular categories that could be for you! Join in a meeting and see if hiring a new sales force can grow your business and put dollars in your pocket!

Jack Ansley, of Ansley Portrait Studios in Devon, is celebrating his 66th year in photography. Started by his father, Jack has been involved with the studio since a child. They were the first color studio on the east coast, and have seen the many historical changes in photography from black and white, film, to color, and the transition to digital in 2002.

Jack does printing on site, and can handle any size up to 44 inches by seven FEET! Keeping up with the latest technology is easy. Simply emailing your photo to Jack and within days can turn it into a poster, table cloth, banner, canvas transfer, or a simple photo ready to frame. Let decades of historical experience work for you at Ansley Studios.
Quote for the week:
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
