We welcome our newest member, Steve O'Neal, of O'Neal Drywall and Construction, official drywall installer.  Glad to have you in the group Steve!

Our speakers were Lynnette Suzadeil of National Penn Bank, and George Scherbak of Harvey Insurance.  Lynnette spoke of what can be easy leads for her at Nation Penn Bank: anyone who may be saving for a down payment for a house, car or vacation, anyone with children, or a non-profit organization.  She also mentioned that National Penn Bank does NOT have a surcharge for use of a debit card at another terminal other than theirs.  This is a huge revelation for those who use debit cards, and a big plus to use NPB for your banking needs.

George Scherbak, of Harvey Insurance, and our groups Mentoring Chairman, took the time to educate the group about the power of tips. How to be a good marketer and how to generate leads. TELL people what you do, find out what they do, and think about the other members in the group.  Get into organizations such as committees, boards and network events.  This is a huge advantage to broaden your businesses and develop power partners.  Through other sources like social clubs, church, country clubs or the gym can get  others comfortable with you and they become trumpeters for your business. Its all good, and George had some great tips!
