    I am in awe of our talented global tribe!

    Members of Global Chamber® are amazing, and ALL are extraordinary. I'm lucky to be working with all our members here in Phoenix and around the world in 525 metro areas... everywhere!

    To the left is last night's "League of Extraordinaries" event here in Metro Phoenix... and a group of our members working together on new opportunities. We're all busy working on our own things, but it turns out the overlaps that we don't necessarily know about open up new doors, and so last night was EXACTLY how it should work... opportunities abound from working together.

    Thank you, ALL!
