My BNI Story
The excitement and financial benefits are still there!

On the first Thursday in December of 1999, I was invited to a networking group at Dillon's Steakhouse. They were looking for a real estate attorney. I had no idea what I was getting into or what a networking experience was. I arrived without any expectations or inclinations. What I saw was a 40 person, 90 minute, constant exhausting experience.  But the excitement and pace [...]

 

My BNI Story

I decided that having a single 1-to-1 with members did not proved enough time to explain my particular business model or what it is I do.  Therefore, I split up my businesses activities into 7 parts and spend much more time now in 1-to-1s explaining the detail in bit size pieces. After having five 1-to-1s with one member, I received referrals from him that resulted [...]

 

My BNI Story
From introvert to outspoken BNI enthusiast

When Michael Partain’s boss sent him to a BNI meeting, Michael expected to sit and watch things happen. He was taken aback when he had to stand up and talk to a room full of strangers.

“People usually keep computer programmers hidden away,” explains Partain.  “I only shared my name and company name. I didn’t know what was going on.”

He made it through that first meeting, [...]

 

My BNI Story
The longer the time with BNI, the more the growth

Rana Gorzeck is the President of Partners for Prosperity, and the real estate attorney for her Boca Raton, Florida chapter in the Palm Beach Region. Rana’s story demonstrates the impact that a lengthy BNI membership has on referral growth.

In my first year in BNI, most of my referrals were residential sales, purchases, and mortgage refinances for homes. In year two, I started receiving larger commercial [...]

 

My BNI Story
A 10-Minute concert leads to the fulfillment of a dream.

I moved to Nashville in 2000 right after college to pursue music. My degree was in communications, but music was my passion. I started playing the piano at the age of 4, and I grew up playing in bands or piano bars. I figured if it didn't pan out, I could always fall back on communications, whatever that meant.

Like most aspiring musicians in Nashville, I worked [...]

 

My BNI Story
BNI training can change your life.

BNI and Givers Gain have not only changed my business, they have changed my life.

I am a member of the Stephenson chapter in Darlington, England. A family friend invited me to BNI seven months ago, and I am now the chapter’s chief visitor host, thanks to our fantastic regional director, Russ Sawdon.

My business is now thriving thanks to BNI. The training I have received has [...]

 

My BNI Story

I joined BNI with the same expectations as all: to get more business.

But the process of BNI...going to meetings every Tuesday (my chapter meeting day), getting prepared , giving referrals, finding opportunities for my fellow members, is simply amazing and fun too.

I am a connections man. In the month of July I did a 1-to-1 with a cross chapter member. During discussions he informed me [...]

 

My BNI Story
For success, take full advantage.

I have been a member of BNI for a few months. I immediately learned an important lesson -- the group is not who I was selling to. (Initial 60 second was embarrassing - ouch!)

Once I understood that my chapter members were there for me to refer, and conversely to refer me, I focused on giving meaningful 60 seconds to educate, and listened to those that [...]

 

My BNI Story

I am a Member of  the BNI Chapter, In Business Together, Mountain View, CA.  We get together at 11:30 at Don Giovanni Restaurant.

Since I have been a BNI member, my business has been growing.  However, the greatest value of being a BNI member has been the personal growth as a business owner.  I believe the BNI referral program is the only one that consistently works.

My BNI Story

Think after the 5th or 6th time, that you don't need to keep meeting for a 1-to-1s? Or maybe after knowing each other for so long, that you chat about the kids or vacation and leave out work related conversation? The Restoration Company and my company have had a relationship for years and our kids attend the same school - we "know" each other and [...]
