Stephen Covey. Character is one thing we are totally responsible for

The E Myth describes small business very well. I am reading it now, very enlightening.

How Did Your Find Out About BNI & Why Did You Join?

A client rang us and invited us to come and be part of the meeting. We
joined because it is the ”Givers gain” principle being applied to help
one another build our businesses and they are a great bunch of people.

What value & benefit have you or your business gained by being a BNI Member?

We have been introduced to a new range of businesses people not previously
known to us. We are more focused on our business and its products and
look at marketing in a different light. Being part of the meeting and
standing up to sell our business has been good as we can focus on
different products. Other group members are more than willing to help in
mentoring in business building. Not to mention the obvious one of
increased business sales.

What Do You Wish Someone Had Told Your When You First Joined BNI? 

The other benefits other than more referrals, such as increased business
confidence.

Do You Have a BNI Story To Share?

On holidays in Qld I took my brother (who wanted to check it out) to a BNI
meeting, it was like connecting with family even though I had never met
any of them before.

Your Dream Referral Is…

Someone who truly appreciates the value of signs as part of their marketing campaign, understands good design, doesn’t quibble over price and pays on the spot and is our advocate..
