Join us at Smoke Rise Country Club for breakfast at Fuse Networking’s Round Table on Thursday, December 14th to learn and discuss how to avoid falling into “The Trap of Success.”

We will be joined by Gene Hammett, writer, speaker, strategic consultant and Founder of LeadersintheTrenches.com, who will lead the conversation.

Gene will share stories of real people who have faced moments of choice that caused them to dig deep, find their courage, and create a life and career of meaning. Will will discuss how significance and exponential success dance together once one gets past the limited thinking that got us this far—once you escape “your own trap of success.”

Smoke Rise Country Club

4900 Chedworth Dr. – Stone Mountain, GA  30087

Kick off the new year with a meeting that will shape the rest of your year! On Thursday, January 11th or Tuesday, January 23rd, join us at Smoke Rise Country Club for the Fuse Networking’s Round Table to discuss the infamous subject of “Goal Setting.”

Our round table will be moderated by Fuse Networking founder, Art Wood. Despite the subject matter, the conversation will focus on feasibility, execution, and accountability.

Fuse Networking is a business building community comprised of Metro Atlanta professionals who value the power of networking, and understand the importance of learning from one another through discussion and sharing of business experiences.

The “Fuse Networking Breakfast Round Table Networking Series,” are a monthly membership-based, subject-driven 90-minute discussion and idea workshop meeting, geared to address business issues affecting all professionals regardless of industry.

Art Wood is not your typical mortgage guy…

With a passion for people and for making things happen, Art takes the mortgage process from what could be scary, overwhelming and intimidating, to a seamless and rewarding experience.

Art wants to be your mortgage guy, and not just the guy that worked on your mortgage. He believes in getting to know each and every client as a friend, sorting through available options, and finding the right mortgage fit. Art loves to make people happy and he will go out of the way to make that happen.

He has been in the mortgage business since 2005, and is currently Branch Manager of the Legacy Mortgage Team at Goldwater Bank, N.A., with an office in downtown Tucker, GA.

Art grew up in Tucker, attended Erskine College in South Carolina, and lives in nearby Stone Mountain with his wife Karen and their two young children, Trace and McKenna.

He is the founder of Fuse Networking at Smoke Rise, an active member of the Lilburn Business Association, the Tucker Business Association, and a board member at Smoke Rise Country Club.
