Devote Yourself to creating something that gives you purpose . . .

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

New BNI Group Forming in Grand Haven

There is a brand new BNI networking group starting up in Grand Haven and we are looking for more members! This group is in it's start up stages and offers a lot of opportunity for those who are looking to increase their business. I know many people who are in BNI groups who have benefited greatly from the relationships they make there. Most BNI groups are already full and don't have openings or aren't located in Grand Haven, so this is an amazing opportunity for our area!

This group meets weekly from 11-12:30 at the Days Inn conference room in Grand Haven on Thursdays.

BNI is a business and professional organization that allows only one person from each profession to join a chapter. Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone new who could use your products or services they hand your card out and recommend your services. It's as simple as that! 

Successful businesses depends on word of mouth. Word of mouth advertising is the best advertising there is and BNI provides a structured and supportive system of giving and receiving business. It does so by providing and environment in which you will develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals. By establishing this "formal" relationship with other people, you will have the opportunity to substantially increase your business.

Examples of the benefits to you:
1. Increased exposure to many other people and businesses.
2. Substantially increased business through referrals.
3. Tools to network more effectively.
4. Participation in up to 52 networking meetings per year.
5. Quarterly newsletters with educational material on networking, public speaking, and business.
6. Participation in business trade shows.
7. Free periodic workshops on networking.
8. Much, much more!
