If you work for yourself and spend your days on your own, at home or in your office, why don't you take the morning off and come along to a networking meeting?
I'm a member of a thriving network group that meets every Thursday morning at...wait for it... 6AM! I know, it is very early, but it's so people can come along and network without losing half their working day.
We meet at the Lansdowne Hotel in Eastbourne every Thursday and the group is called 1st Eastbourne BNI.
Now, you may or may not have heard of BNI. I had and if I'm truthful, I used to have a bit of a downer on the name but it was really contempt prior to investigation. You see, I had heard disgruntled ex-members of BNI bemoaning the fact that it was a waste of time, they never got any business, moan, moan, moan... and I allowed myself to be influenced by this.
I never once made the effort to go along to a BNI meeting to find out for myself.
Until last year.
I was invited to go along as a guest by one of my clients and I was so impressed, I signed up to join immediately!
The Chapter I have joined, 1st Easbourne, is comprised of about 20 different business owners, all of whom are professional, supportive, knowledgeable, kind and fun to be with.
I thoroughly enjoy the network meetings but more importantly, I have received referrals and work as a result of my membership.
So, my question is this...would YOU like to come along to a meeting to see what it is all about?
If the answer is YES, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you an invitation!
