We as a smaller group will enjoy a socially-distanced outdoor lunch, coffee or ice cream at 12:30

Grassroots Ice Cream and Street Food
4 Park Place
Granby CT (intersection of Routes 202, 20 and 189) Please let Dianne know if you plan to join us.
This is a very cool, local spot with: Fair Trade regular and fancy coffees, sandwiches and an assortment of lunch items including vegan and gluten-free, homemade iced cream of a wide variety of 36 unusual flavors.
They are open with only outdoor ordering, outdoor seating etc. There is a patio with a grassy area to enjoy. There are some small tables too.  It wouldn't be weird if you want to bring your own chair and sit as far away as you are comfortable. Then after lunch-
1:30 or so-head up the road to O'Brien's Nursery 40 Wells Rd, Granby for a lovely walk.  If you don't know this place, you must! It is an unbelievable garden center behind O'Brien's house- the grounds rival many parks and are worthy of photographs.This week on display will be "Enticing Epimediums". There might still be some Early Magnolias, and Early Rhodos in bloom.  It is truly spectacular!  We can wander at will but please do keep a mask on. We're used to that by now, right?  Sneakers advised.

RSVP via email is needed.


May 27-7:30AM. WWIN on-line meeting Power up your Follow-up with Wanda Allen, a follow-up expert from Mississippi.


Follow Up Strategies That Will Get More Clients and Close More Sales

If follow up is a hard heavy "to do" then the Follow Up Sales Strategies Presentation is for you.  You'll learn that follow up is merely a matter of having effective habits and good systems in place. If you struggle getting your follow up work done, it's not because you don't have time, you're not organized or you're not good at sales...it's because you haven't learned the right systems and skill set.  Understanding this will help put you in the flow of ease of getting this all important work done on a daily basis.


In the Follow Up Sales Strategies Presentation, you'll learn:


    Why using a system is critical for success

    Follow up systems that don't work

    How the right mindset will make the follow up process easier

    Surprising sales statistics

    The real reason people don’t follow up

    3 strategies that will improve your follow up efforts immediately


Improving your follow up skills will help you get more clients and close more sales!
