The chamber’s vision is to help our businesses achieve their goals and dreams, so we are pleased to announce that our guest speaker will be Sharon Lechter, the bestselling co-author of “Think and Grow Rich — Three Feet from Gold,” “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” and 14 other “Rich Dad” books. Come together with fellow community members to discover, share and celebrate all of the innovative practices to support the local message from a business owner’s standpoint.

This life-changing presentation will help attendees define their Personal Success Equation. Lechter will share proven strategies on how to turn your obstacles into opportunities, reveal the four global economic trends that will produce the next explosive business successes, and help you identify how to seize those opportunities, and create great wealth for you and your family.

Napoleon Hill wrote “Think and Grow Rich” during the Great Depression. Published in 1938, it is credited by millions of successful people today as being their inspiration. Lechter was hand-picked by the Napoleon Hill Foundation to update Hill’s philosophy for today’s economic environment. Lechter will share the principles and secrets of success from many of today’s successful leaders as revealed in “Three Feet From Gold.” Their experiences and proven strategies will steer you in the right direction and help you plot your course to great success. It’s your turn!

The 2013 Business Expo event will kick off at 10 a.m. with our trade show, showcasing local businesses providing products and services in Ahwatukee and the surrounding area. Don’t forget to bring plenty of business cards, as you will also have the opportunity to make new connections both prior to the luncheon and also at your luncheon table. The luncheon will follow the expo and will begin at noon.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Presenting Sponsor San Tan Ford, plus our supporting sponsors — Amazing Dental Care and Find It Media. We can’t wait to see our fabulous vendors and both new and familiar faces on Sept. 17.

Luncheon tickets can be purchased on our website,, or by calling our office at (480) 753-7676. We encourage you to invite and share the event details to other local businesses in your social network. By spreading the word, we help each other locally. We look forward to seeing you there!
