Networking with LeTip Chester County East (CCE) is more energizing than caroling with Santa’s elves! Thanks to our tippers for another jam-packed morning at our recent meeting on Tuesday, December 1, 2009.

SPEAKERS: Our speakers were:  Craig Constable of UFinancial and Mike Clark of The Wireless Zone.

1st Speaker:  Craig discussed the difference between “Term” vs. “Permanent” Life Insurance, with a key difference being coverage for a specific period of time or for as long as you live. Whole Life Insurance is the basic type of permanent life insurance. Other types of permanent life insurance include: Universal Life and Variable Universal Life. Craig also offers Business Owned Life Insurance which is permanent insurance held by employers on the lives of their employees. This is to protect your business on the death of an employee(s) whose services are vital to the company’s operations. A good lead for him is a closely held company where there are 2,3,4 owners or partners and they are looking to protect what they have worked so hard to build.

2nd Speaker:  Mike represents Wireless Zones, authorized retailers for Verizon Wireless, in Frazer and Thorndale. Mike offers a full line of cell phones, Smart Phones: Blackberry, PALM, etc., as well as aircards for laptops. The newest, hot product is the Motorola Droid which is the first Android device offered by Verizon Wireless and is based on Google's Android operating system. It offers many cool features like Built-in Google search technology, including voice-based search. It gives users access to "tens of thousands" of freeware, shareware and for-purchase applications and widgets that don't require an app store nor an approval process. Not getting what you want from your wireless devices? Give Wireless Zone a call.

TIPS: At this week’s meeting we circulated 21 tips total! (10 inside and 11 outside tips). Go Tippers!

DOLLARS IN OUR POCKETS: Please provide Scott Darling your “dollars in your pocket” for the month of November asap!

BUSINESS MIXER: Our Quarterly Business Mixer will be held on December 8th at Halligan's Hearth and Home in Malvern. (Our meetings will pick up again at the Holiday Inn Express in Exton at our December 15th meeting.)

QUOTE OF THE WEEKIn essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.

By Tony Robbins

I’m excited for another successful mixer on December 8th – yay!

See you!
