Rebuilding Together - Aurora

Needs a location

Many Hands Make Light Work on a Rebuilding Together Aurora Project For over 15 years CCIA Members have helped rehab homes for the Elderly, Handicapped and Veterans as part of the National Rebuilding Together Event. Participants have generally come away feeling like they worked hard and made a difference. Not to mention learning new skills and making new friends! We've survived pouring rain, insufficient supplies and more, but always come up with creative ways to complete our projects! For more information on how to join us, or how to donate money to help with materials, visit: https://ccia-info.com/4%2F26-27-rta-aurora-event The project hours run Friday and Saturday 7:30AM - 4PM. You can come for some or all of it. Your help will be appreciated.

Chicago Creative Investors Association - Monthly Meeting

Chicago Creative Investors Association - Monthly Meeting There is always a lot to be learned at CCIA meetings, from our main speaker, from our other presenters, and from the members who attend. This month will be supercharged. Our main speaker is Augie Byllott. Augie has lots to offer. If you have ever let lack of cash, credit, or banking relationships hold you back - that can stop now. He will show you how. Here ar a few things you will learn. • Simple things to start doing more deals quickly • An easy to implement 6-step system for every type of deal • The Number 1 secret for getting more offers accepted • How to get your seller to say Yes rather than "Let Me Think About It" • How to make a difference in your community to produce even better results! The key to this business is making offers: It's a disservice to let your qualified prospects walk away without working with you! They are ready to sell, so learn how to give them what they want in a win-win manner. Give them what they need to say, "YES"!
