Happy Dollars:  

Nancy is happy that Mechanics Bank purchased a bank that doubled its net worth.  Sal is happy that he now has a clean bill of health for his mouth.  Jack is happy his Joyful Moments book is now hot off the press.  He will share more about this later.  He was asked to give us some details at a future meeting which he agreed to do.  Michael is happy his son and daughter took a vacation together to Australia.  Lee is happy about his recent vacation tip and shared with us how he is capturing his pictures so he can share them with others,  There are a lot of ways people can download pictures and then have them put into useable form for not a lot of money.

Sgt at Arms:  Not on duty today

Todays Program:  .Lee introduced Naomi Sodomin to speak to us about her business and pasion of building a business “embrace the mirror”.  The main focus of her presentation was how we must use our consciounce and subconsciounce mind in order to achieve the success we desire (and deserve).  Naomi told us it is very important to take advantage of our subconsciounce mind as it can have a significant impact on giving us the internal means and extermal desire to achieve more.  She gave us some very good examples of ways that successful people use their mental attributes to adhieve and do more.  She gave us examples of people that have used the power of the subconscious mind to achive very powerful outcome.  She also pointed it is important to “stop doing” and take time to dream.  In the trade it is called visualizating. 

Naomi did an excellent job in her presentation and ended by giving us a questionnair to complete so we could get more information.  I consider this presentation to be one of the best presentations we have had for some time. 

Todays Raffle: The bottle of wine was won by Sonya.  The marble drawing ticket was pulled for Andy  and he selected a catseye marble.  Next week the pot will be $140.
