Because Forums typically only meet once a month, many things happen throughout the month that members might not know about with each other.
To build anticipation for the Forum meeting and the Monthly Updates, try out doing a “Teaser Update” before the meeting.
A Teaser Update is a one-sentence update to the group that hints at something that’s happened over the past month that you plan to talk about during the Forum meeting. Here are some examples:
- “After 10 years, the biggest headache of my life is finally over. I am ready to move on.”
- “I am digging through my couch looking for coins because my biggest bill is coming due in two months.”
- “I’m already 30 days ahead of my goal!”
