Hi Michelle!  Are you as excited as I am for the new year ahead?!  I love this time of year.  A new year....a clean slate....new possibilities....and a fresh perspective on business and life!

As I reflect back and think about last year, I continue to be inspired by so many of YOU.....our sponsors, supporters, advocates, members and SUE Talkers!  I'm inspired by your love of business, your aspirations, your loyalty, your ideas and your passion and persistence!

CWI had some fabulous growth and successes last year, including a few missteps and a few bumps in the road.  We hit the mark in so many ways and yet missed the mark a few times in opportunity and results.

I thought I'd share a little bit of inspiration to kick off the year.  If you don't know by now, I'm a HUGE Disney fan......and I hope you enjoy the inspiration below from Winnie the Pooh, as sometimes we can succeed only if we first BELIEVE we can!

Also, I've also included our upcoming schedule of events for you to update in your calendar........as well as share our most recent upcoming events and announcements.

So here's to a grand 2017!  I'm excited to be on the new year journey to be better and do better this year! 

What about you?!  What's your plan to do better and be better at this year!?

I look forward to seeing you for our January Leadership Luncheon to kick off the new year!

I know you have big plans for the year, so here's hoping you have phenomenal success in 2017!
