My wife and I have been full time property investors for the last nine years and by giving our ”Property Friends” access to WHOLESALE buying power, they can purchase in EXACTLY the same area that we are buying in OURSELVES, at EXACTLY the same prices that we purchase at…

What are your top 3 networking tips?

1) be present (in mind and body)-EVERYTIME
2) work the some – this is a social gathering…
3) have fun (and a little social time – LOL)

What can’t you live without?

leads= new clients into the marketing funnel

Which Business Book Would Your Recommend & Why?

First Things First (Stephen R. Covey);
One of the most difficult things in one owns business (in my view)is the conflict of differing priorities and the finite time one has. Hence – often the ”urgent” comes before the ”important” – until the ”important” becomes ”urgent”.
With proper prioritizing of time and proper planning, there will be few really ”urgent” items…

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

Referral Danielle Storey – The Cartridge Family

Danielle ”hounded” me for two years… (love you for it Danielle), I travel a lot and did not see a possibility to attend/have substitutes, as required. At the end, I needed to do ”something” to broaden my horizon and wanted to expose our business to more people

How Long Have You Been a Member For?

09-2011

What Position/s On The Leadership Team Have You Held? 

Visitor Host

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

1) really defined/refined/refined my ”elevator pitch” 1min presentation
2) got more comfortable in presenting
3) meeting a ”great bunch of people” weekly
4) was able to give referral and although it has only been a relatively short while since joining, have received referrals that converted into business.
GREAT FUN :-)

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

That there is a system for substitutes.

I travel about every 4-6 weeks for a week, hence attendance as required is a challenge. The substitute system disolves that challenge. I would have joined two years earlier if I had been clear on this.

Do You Have a BNI Story to share?

IT WORKS IF YOU WORK IT

Your Dream Referral Is…

An accountant that wants to have a trustworthy company assisting his clients with property investing
