Since 2004 I have been part of a fabulous group called BNI (business network international) – to tell you a bit about what we do:
Each Wednesday we get together in a structured meeting to learn and teach each other about our businesses. We work on our speaking skills, give & receive feedback, launch new products and brainstorm ideas – from all of this, we really get to know one another and are able to pass referrals to help grow our businesses. It is a fabulous idea!! Every small business should know about BNI – such a great tool!
(Plus – you get to meet some really amazing people!!)
Here is a photo of our group as of April 2009 – we were missing a couple of folks that day, but you’ll get to learn about them soon!
I am SO thankful for this group – they have been a huge part of my success over the past few years! So for the next few weeks Wendesdays are going to be BNI Business Spotlight days! =) Each week you will get to learn about one of the members of the group. Soon you’ll see why Wednesdays are my favorite days!
Stay tuned… Christopher Smith will be featured May 5th!
