Awards and Recognition

Melanie Selcho Adds A 5 Year Pin

My question for Melanie was: did you know when you came to the very first planning meeting for this Team that you’d be at this table every morning for five years? “No, you tried to talk me out of joining.” That’s true. And you said, “I think I can do this.” What made you feel this would…

Mark Chase 10 Year Pin

  I remember when the Cumberland Team wanted – and I mean w.a.n.t.e.d Mark Chase. They pursued him. He lives in Cartersville, so this wasn’t really in his weekly traffic pattern. I asked what had kept him coming back, and coming early, (he’s generally one of the first people there, setting up tables) for the…

Louis Agudo Has A 10 Year Pin

Louis was an active Member – and then life took him in another direction. Still, he came back to his Team. When people come back, I’m always interested in why. So I asked: “I like the structure. I like the credibility, and I like the accountability that we hold each other to. It’s very important….

John B. Miller adds 15 year Pin

John says: The credibility of my Team Members is what keeps me here. When I have referrals for my clients, my clients think that I’m more credible because I have great people to refer. That is a huge benefit to me. Join the Peachtree City Team’s congratulations and applause.

J.B. Kitts Has 3 Words For 5 Years

JB pinned his business card on a bulletin board at a gas station. Tommy Schlosser called, asked how that was working for him,  invited him to visit the Whitlock Team! Five years and five Officer roles later, JB added a 5 Year Pin. I asked why he’s attended this meeting every Friday for  five years and participated in…

Linda Loud Earns 5 Year Pin – though she’s in a rare classification.

Linda, when you joined the North Point Team did you think you would be here five years later – as an Officer, and a Coach? “I suspected I would for two reasons:  I had a good experience when I was a Member before, in 2000. I had three kids in three different schools, and a…

Dr. Laurie Dady Adds A Gold Star

Gold Star Members are responsible for referring five people who’ve joined. I always want to know what they say when they invite someone to a 7am meeting. Here’s Dr. Dady’s response: “Well, I wait for them to figure out I really care about their business. then  I will tell them, ‘I’m in this great business…

Venis Sims earns MVP

The MVP pin is for people who are responsible for 15 people who have joined, and it comes with an engraved business card holder. Venis, how many people have you invited to get to 15? I’ve got pretty good record. Share  your script — when you’re inviting somebody to come to a 7:00 a.m. meeting what do you…

Jason Wilson Gets His 5 Year Pin

Jason, five years ago, why did you say yes to the invitation to compete with your peers for a hot seat? The opportunity was local to the community. One of my big values is to connect with the community. That is who I am. At the one year point, was this what you expected? It was different than I…

Linda Kuryloski Earns Gold Star

You’ve invited six people who’ve joined. So that means that you’ve really invited more than six people. Might be more. Maybe 60! I always mention it. When I’m out networking it’s a great way to have a conversation that’s not offensive. It’s a great way to cross-pollinate all the organizations I’m a member of. If you’re looking for new…
