My BNI Story
Which leads to being an active Chapter 44 member!

With my own law practice of 5 years, I had visited BNI  chapters for the last 4 years, obtaining business and expanding my network.

I visited Chapter 44 about a year ago and met another visiting real estate attorney who had submitted an application into the group. I shot her a follow up email to connect and fast forward about a year later, the attorney called [...]


My BNI Story

Cliff Meyers owner of We Fix Em said in his sales manager moment "A good referral for me is someone that is spending money on technology, but wants to make money on technology." When he said that I remember thinking I am a contractor.  I don't want or need to make money on technology. I always had the oldest phone and computer not the newest and [...]


My BNI Story

About 2 years ago, my partner and I broke up our 30+ year association.  I found myself short of marketing ideas and VERY short of marketing skills. I was asked by a friend and client to join the Referrals Unlimited chapter in Commerce-Novi, Michigan.  It has been an essential part of the growth of my own little enterprise, giving me insights into the business side [...]

My BNI Story

The first time I heard about BNI was when I purchased a Coffee News franchise. Coffee News and BNI have a strategic alliance and I was told at our initial training that I should join BNI.  After looking a various chapters in Wichita KS I became a member of Referral Rockstars and have been a member since 2010.

BNI has been amazing for my business. Forget about cold [...]


My BNI Story

I would like to share my experience.  I was advised by 2 people NOT to join BNI. They both said it really wasn't worth it and it didn't pertain to what I was doing.

I am so glad that I didn't listen 25 leads/closed business later and 5 new associates stronger. I proved them to be very WRONG. Since joining the Gateway To Success group in [...]


My BNI Story
It's value exceeded my expectation!

With the world economy the way it is, a lot of business struggle to keep going, let alone growing.

I received a referral from a fellow BNI member to one of her clients at the beginning of 2014, and became their top service provider. Three weeks ago they referred me on to one of their clients.

I am currently in the process of importing a large order [...]


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 [...]
