Hi Friends,


Several items to talk about:


Did YOU receive our first newsletter?  It was sent out just yesterday!  The newsletter has information about our groups, articles that pertain to you and upcoming events.

If you did not receive the newsletter, please go to and fill out the box on the Home Page and that will ensure that you will get the next one.  Would you like a copy of the one that went out yesterday?  If so, shoot me an e-mail and I will make sure that you get the newsletter.



Would you like to advertise your business on our web sites , newsletters and business PARTNERS Page?  We have very affordable advertising for one month, 3 months, 6 months and a year.  We also will give our members one month free of advertising!  Just give it a try!  If you are interested in advertising your business, please contact [address removed] and we will send you the outline of advertising structure and fees. 

At the bottom of each newsletter, we have a money off coupon available.  Would you like to offer money off on services and pass that on to our members---your friends?   Are you a therapist, lawyer, business owner, yoga teacher, music teacher...anything!  This is a way to gain new customers from your friends and our members. 

We also have open hours in our CHAT room.  We invite business owners, Consultants and those that do business networking workshops to sign up for an hour and promote their chat to the our entire group and people on your mailing list.  Maybe you are a divorce attorney, mental health professional, insurance agent, finanacial planner, business development professional....any topic is good as long as it is a benefit to our members!  We will post your hour on our calendar and invite others to join in. 

Also, if you would like to host a TOPIC chat on any subject, just contact us.  Our chat rooms are available and being underutilized. 

We also invite other groups to come in and host an hour.  Many of our members are also members of other groups and this is the perfect place for all groups to chat and get to know each other.  This is a wondrful tool that connects people. 

Networking is a HUGE part of Friends First.  Friends networking to make new friends, business networking for those in business, single networking for dating, widow(er) networking to help on the road to recovery and Ladies networking to make other female friends.   

This web site was designed to connect all of us to each other.  Please feel free to use this site for that purpose.  I can tell you this, several people who have met through the chat room have actually now met in real life because they connected in the chat room! 


Do you have a REAL fillable position that needs to be filled?  If you do and you are looking for qualified, intelligent mature people to interview for that position, please reach out to us.  Many of our members are unemployed or underemployed and have years of experience!  We sent out two open jobs this week that will result in one of our members possibly filling that position!  I spoke with one of the employers just yesterday and they were amazed and impressed at the quality of the applicants from our group. 

If you have a job to post, please contact [address removed].  

We hope the things that we are bringing to you will help improve your life.  We hope you find friends, employment, advertising to help your business, friends to improve your life and help you get started over AND we hope that you are just lucky enough to meet someone special. 

Please let us know if we can do anything to help you along the way.  We are always up for suggestions.
