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 [...]

...and reap the benefits of your BNI membership.

You probably know by now that there is a formula to your success in BNI. Ivan previously wrote in SuccessNet about 3+1 = Member's Success. Through education we often talk about the "3" and do so through stories. However, we do not often talk specifically about the last piece, "+1" - Share Stories. Think about your many experiences and write them down.  Listening closely to [...]


My BNI Story
Going into his second year, a BNI member exceeds his goals.

When I joined BNI Saint Germain des Pres chapter in April 2013, I set the goal to increase my business with three remodeling projects that year. The goal has been largely reached, with nearly 200000€ of referrals, thus representing 15% of my annual turnover.

Immediately after starting my second year, I exceeded my goal. In April 2014 I received a referral for remodeling a hotel with [...]

My BNI Story

When looking into becoming a member of BNI, one would usually visit multiple chapters to find the best fit for themselves, as well as for their company. This was my original plan when I began my BNI chapter search. My plans suddenly changed the moment I walked into the Campbell County chapter of BNI. I was immediately acknowledged by all of the members, I felt [...]


My BNI Story

As the founder and chairman of Artnomadis SAS, a contemporary art gallery created in 2010, I am extremely grateful to the BNI organization for boosting my 2013 sales—and saving my business. BNI referrals that converted into sales accounted for 70% of my 2013 turnover!  If not for BNI, my small art gallery business would probably be dead.

Many find it hard to believe that BNI actually changes business; I’m here to dispel that disbelief.

I [...]


My BNI Story

Through my business as a workshop facilitator, I use principles of improvisation and laughter to help employees enhance their communication, creativity, leadership, and team collaboration skills. When I first joined BNI, I was skeptical how I would receive referrals for my business and gain value from my membership.

However, I am proud to say that 40% of my business comes from BNI. I am fortunate to be a [...]

How to use BNI Memory Cards to boost a marketing mindset.

I have to admit, I have questioned the usefulness of the BNI Memory Cards. Recently, one of our members and Member Success Program facilitators, Richard Vasquez, a property and casualty insurance agent from the BNI Success Express chapter, shared how he uses the cards.

A couple mornings a week, Richard places a memory card on each of his employee’s desks for them to review. He does [...]


My BNI Story
Wait for your referral.

My business began to grow once I became a member of BNI. However, it wasn't until about 2 years after a member left that I received the biggest referral yet.

The former member and I stayed in touch and his employer, the local landfill and waste management system company needed a new uniform and embroidery supplier. He told the person in charge that my business was [...]
