Top ProductThe BNI referral marketing system is the best way for business owners and salespeople to grow their businesses. All I do is show how a chapter meeting works and they see the value and want to become a member.

Top Problem SolvedHelped an extremely shy new BNI member to overcome their fear of speaking. They were now able to deliver a concise focused introduction to the chapter without any fear or embarrassment.

My Favorite BNI StoryThere was a financial advisor in my chapter who was the preferred advisor for a large oilfield company with 100,000 employees worldwide. He wanted to talk to them and deliver his message about investing but only a few thousand people were local in Houston. In our chapter there were also a videographer and a CD printer who would put your business info on a CD as a marketing tool. I put all of these members together so the financial advisor could videotape his talks, record them onto the CDs with all of his contact information and then send them out to all of the company employees. The company paid about $250,000 for all of that to be done and the program was very successful for all involved.
