Be Like a Pencil

Be like a pencil!

We thought that this was particularly good… A PENCIL MAKER TOLD THE PENCIL 5 IMPORTANT LESSONS JUST BEFORE PUTTING IT IN THE BOX:

1. EVERYTHING YOU DO WILL ALWAYS LEAVE A MARK.
2. YOU CAN ALWAYS CORRECT THE MISTAKES YOU MAKE.
3. WHAT IS IMPORTANT IS WHAT IS INSIDE OF YOU.
4. IN LIFE , YOU WILL UNDERGO PAINFUL SHARPENING, WHICH WILL ONLY MAKE YOU BETTER.
5. TO BE THE BEST PENCIL, YOU MUST ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE HELD AND GUIDED BY THE HAND THAT HOLDS YOU.

We all need to be constantly sharpened. This parable may encourage you to know that you are a special person, with unique talents and abilities. Only you can fulfill the purpose which you were born to accomplish. Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot be changed and, like the pencil, always remember that the most important part of who you are, is what’s inside of you.

Your Board Enjoyed a Planning Meeting to Meet Your Needs

We, as a board, met for our annual planning meeting and have a phenomenal schedule for you, our member, in 2013. We have top-rated speakers lined up, our annual end-of-summer social planned, and our annual Seasonal Networking event featuring 20+ local vendors for networking and shopping with your peers.

Not only did we come together as a board, but we also took each of your end-of-event survey’s into consideration to enhance our 2013 schedule. 2013 will be another phenomenal year for our chapter! We are moving into our 4th year as the only chapter specific for the professional woman in the insurance and financial services industry.
