Change can be scary. We are all creatures of habit and when our lives change, it can be uncomfortable. However, being uncomfortable may not be negative.

To lose weight, we change our eating and activities habits. It may be “uncomfortable’ for a period of time, but the results that come from this change are worth it. You may feel  healthier and more vibrant.

We all should audit ourselves as well as our businesses from time to time to determine if there are any changes that could give us better results. We are halfway through the year, and this is a great time to step back and look for something that you would like to change.

The ROMG Chamber is leading by example. We have looked at ourselves and are making some exciting changes. We have added a new member-only benefit, Masterminds. We have re-launched our Lunch & Learn networking lunches each month (however, we are taking a vacation during the summer- Meetings will resume in September). We are getting more involved with our communities citizens while giving out free temporary tattoos at the concert events in Owings Mills and Reisterstown as well as offering a new membership for citizens to become involved with us.

Take some time and list what changes you have made in your personal or business life. Then, decide on how you want to finish 2017. Think about a few changes that you can make, then go for it!

Let us know what you want to change by posting on our Facebook Page – then give us updates as you move toward your success. While you visit our Facebook Page- please give us a review there as well!
