Testimonial from a BNI Gatwick Founder Member
I was locked out of the first Chapter I visited and subsequently became a founder member of BNI Flagship. I know it isn’t for everyone and if I said I received referrals every week, I would be lying, but at the end of the day, you get out of it, what you are prepared to put in and there aren’t many ways to obtain a workforce of around 20+ people and not have to pay them a salary!!
Remember to take advantage of what is available to you as a member. Free training and web presence, seminars, podcasts and advice from others to help with your business.
The sickness I felt at that first meeting still happens today, but the confidence I have gained in the process has led me to win business I could only have dreamt of. I still work for past members as well as present. It takes a long time for someone to gain the confidence to refer you onto their contacts, but once you win that confidence the referrals start coming in. I have also had the privilege of being a Chapter Director and a Membership Co-ordinator, which have also helped to build my confidence.
Life has its challenges and it is at those times you realise just how many friends you have made a long the way too. If it didn’t work I wouldn’t still be here!”
