Announcement

First Friday lunch is going to be with QueenService Challenge HIM at The Hope Center on Friday at noon – RSVP to Folsom 

COT: BetaMax shared a quote from Warrant Buffet on saying “no” so that you can say “YES” to the things that matter (your relationship with your M, kids, and other priorities which really matter). 

“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.” 

 Time management requires you to be intentional in the budgeting and expenditure, just like money. BetaMax challenged the PAX to focus on what really matters.
