Ballantyne Business Network

I always said that if I ever moved to a new town the first thing I would do was join a BNI. Well, it took me a year, but I finally did it. I found a great group in Ballantyne, near Charlotte, NC. and I am so glad a did--in fact I wish I had done it months ago!

The Ballantyne group is a neat one - very diverse, and super friendly. But that is part of what BNI is all about. Now, I have been to other business networking groups, but this one is the same no matter where I go. The agenda, the philosophy, the goal - the only thing that differs is group dynamics -- and that is where your good groups shine -- the pass referrals, keep the meeting going, add new and productive members, and take the meeting seriously while having fun.

My new BNI group in Ballantyne, has been amazingly open and supportive. And best of all, the referrals are turning into solid business opportunities--and that, is what it is all about.

If you would like to know more about the business networking events in the Charlotte area, feel free to comment below.
