Good morning! Here are four reminders / notes for Thursday:
1) $50 2nd quarter dues are due by 4/4/13. If you can bring them this week, that'd be great!
2) This week, we're focusing on inviting bankers and health/life insurance agents. Ask any / all that fit the category - they can be your friends, vendors, clients, or someone you Google!
3) We're now on meetup.com. I sent everyone an email about it. We've had two people express interest in attending this Thursday. Hopefully we see them there!
4) This week, we'll be developing two questions each person in the group can ask on your behalf when they're being your "sales rep."
See you in a few days!

Just a reminder that our $50 (note the decrease!) quarterly dues need to be received by April 4th.
