This past week I received a really nice message from Frank Kenny who is from Longview, Washington and has a book out called “The Seven Secret Laws of Society” He was complementing our Chamber on our Facebook and how many friends we have. Frank travels all over the State of Washington doing seminars he is an author, speaker, and consultant. Integrating new media, social media marketing, and modern technology.
Frank talks in his book about giving back to your community. Here is an part of what Frank is saying:
As a business owner or executive:
1. You will attract more customers.
2. You will have more fun. Give Gifts. Be Generous.™
It is a nice way to spend your time.
3. You will have more friends.
4. Your standing in the community will rise and you
will have more influence.
5. Opportunities will come to you out of the blue.
6. Your stress level will go down because your business
is doing better and your life feels more complete.
By doing all these things Frank is saying that good things will come back to you for your business. I truly believe this! I remember when I worked for Walmart, the founder Sam Walton, encouraged his management team to get involved in the community. Now Sam just didn’t want us to join the Chamber or Rotary, he wanted us to get involved on committees and see if we could make a difference.
Now I know your all saying that you are too busy to do this, but I’m telling you this is the way everyone should run their lives, help your community, and it doesn’t have to be the Chamber of Commerce. Many of you already do it, rather it is your Church, Little League, Food Kitchens or whatever you are doing , Frank is saying to do more, and good things will come back to you. Please give me feedback on this, and if these results have happen to you.
So stop on down to our Main Street location at 121 Main Street and have a cup of coffee, and give us your ideas. Please pass the Blog on to your friends.
