If you have attended a My Pinnacle Network meeting, you know the importance of gratitude in the meeting format. In fact, prior to a member or guest giving their verbal brand, we ask them to first offer thank you’s to fellow members for any or all of the following: new business; leads or referrals; and/or one-on-ones. In November, a month with two holidays specifically for expressions of gratitude–Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving–we are upping the ante.

To celebrate the month of gratitude, we would first like to thank our members and people who have attended My Pinnacle Network meetings over the past year. We have built something special over the past four years and we are grateful to each and every one of you.

Over the course of November, many people show gratitude in a variety of ways. For example, our partner Joe D’Eramo will be participating in Movember, growing a moustache and raising money for men’s health issues, including prostate cancer. As part of our November meetings, we are asking that members and guests share those stories in addition to your thank you’s for business.

What are appropriate thank you’s? Pretty much anything. Has somebody provided you a service this year that you truly appreciated and want to recognize? That’s perfect. Is there somebody you’ve been meaning to write a recommendation for on LinkedIn but haven’t gotten around to it? Again, that’s another something that would be perfect. When it comes to saying “thank you,” you really can’t go wrong.

So if you have made it this far in the e-mail, thank you. We look forward to hearing from you in November.
