                           From the President                       by Cindy Fleming
                          This month's President's article is being written for you from Nashville, Tennessee. Over the past few years I have traveled
                          over the seas to exotic places like Mexico, Argentina, Greece and the Dominican Republic. I have always been excited to
                          learn about the people, their culture and how their spend their days.
                        Imagine my surprise when I have felt the same way about Nashville! I have spent the past 5 days walking Music Row and
                        visiting exotic places like BB Kings Club, Coyote Ugly, The Wildhorse Saloon, the Station Inn and a few hole in the wall
                        blues and jazz clubs. It is impossible not to immerse yourself in the music
                        here, to imagine these places when Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash sat in
the same rooms I am now visiting. Nashville has a culture all its own.
However, what I have enjoyed most of all is listening to the "wanna be's" voices as they spill out of
all the clubs along Music Row. They are singing their hearts out, hoping someone will hear them          Board of Directors . . . . . . . . . . . . 2

Ambassadors' Corner
by Glenda G. Joseph
"If one advances confidently in the direction of their dreams, and endeavors to
live the life they have imagined, they will meet with a success unexpected in
common hours."
                                                   - Henry David Thoreau
That is one of my favorite quotes. The concept is simple and complex at the
same time. Most people find it hard to imagine any reality other than the
one they are presently living. Einstein said "Imagination is everything. It is
the preview of life's coming attraction". So what do you see in store for your
business in 2009?
I see the most prosperous year ever! Inherent in every crisis is the seed of an
opportunity. What is your plan to take advantage of the opportunities all
around? Don't have one . . . get one. A simple thing I've found to be most
effective is to expect success. Expect to make that sale, expect to sell that
house, and expect to land the million dollar account. Most successful
business owners can tell you about a time they had to believe when there was
nothing to believe in. I always tell anxious clients "We are not going to
worry until there is something to worry about". So let's not get so busy living
that we forget to imagine a life worth living.
