My BNI Story

Life is funny. I enjoy the heck out of going to my BNI meetings. The folks in my crowd are all quite likable. I have found the Sales Manager Moments to be great and they always make me smile. Then when, finally, it is my turn to speak, I do. The group listens to my 60 seconds. I speak loud, let ‘em know what I’m looking for, and ask for their help.

While others members speak, I take some notes, I have learned how to listen for opportunities so I can assist my fellow members. I found out that those one-to-ones are most helpful too. Be sure to plan time on your calendar for these, and for your BNI Meeting.

They asked me to be on the Membership Committee. I didn’t want to….told them, you can’t make me. But, I sure am glad that I accepted that role. Today I was doing my duty as part of the committee. I was talking to one of our visitors, a fancy Mortgage Broker…imagine me, just an air conditioning guy, spending time with the big boys!

I look forward to every meeting and boy, the return on investment is awesome too.
