I have been a member of BNI - Leading Edge Chapter for about 3 years, have exchanged thousands of dollars of business, with many fellow members, and have also made many great friendships ... We're definitely a close-knit group who support each other.
BNI relationships also extend beyond our own chapters. For instance, several months ago, I visited another chapter and, a few weeks later, received a referral from one of the members. A couple of weeks later, I received another referral from that same chapter and, just this week, that member referred his sister-in-law, who was involved in an auto collision.
I truly appreciate all the support received by my fellow members, past members & other chapter members .. . BNI really works, especially when we live by the BNI philosophy, 'Givers Gain' !
It's always a pleasure doing business together and supporting each other at BNI!
