20 Feb OUR HISTORY: LUCY JEFFREY’S SPEECH AT THE AFTER 5 BUSINESS MINGLE EVENT
Have you ever wondered when and why The Entrepreneur Nation was started? My friend, Lawyer Bassam Lazar gave me advice to start something like this. It was not clear what it would be but when Bassam was away on vacation, I thought of the name and registered it as well as built the website.
After that, I went to my friend Nick Borisavljevic’s office and explained to him what I had started. Nick said he was going to be part of it. He signed for the membership right away.
By the time Bassam came back from vacation, we had memberships in Canada and USA. Bassam joined the membership on his return.
Shirley Hewlett in Ottawa was the 3rd one to join and this opened doors for our members in Network Marketing Industry. After that, it has been a successful journey.
Why am I telling you this story? So, you know the journey we have traveled. So, you know our history. So, you know who made it happen. Bassam, Nick and Shirley will be part of our successful history. I will forever remain thankful to them. They are featured in our Inaugural Magazine.
That said, all the members who have joined us so far are wonderful and we all look forward to continuing to support each other to make this worthwhile for them.
Nick has been the Emcee the whole time and supporting our events. We appreciate him a lot. And Bassam has continued to give me adivice to steer the organization into the right direction. I appreciate that Bassam has been able to talk to me on a daily basis to give me guidance.
After looking at the successes we have achieved, and the entrepreneurs that are lining themselves with us, Bassam has decided to take on a bigger role with more responsibilities to lead the company. We are working on full details and announcements will be made at the next After 5 Business Mingle on the 26th of February. Thank you Bassam. Your contributions cannot be taken for granted.
The Entrepreneur Magazine was created so that our members can have a voice both in print copy and online. Business owners can advertise in the magazine and make their services known. The Magazine will be distributed across London and in many cities where we operate. We are planning a very huge presence online.
Thank you Simon Farrugia for taking up the back cover.
Thank you to our speakers and thank you to all the guests who have attended. We hope to see you at the next event Feb. 26th. Our After 5 Business Mingle are always on the last Tuesday of the month.
