When you are responsible, to any degree, with the flow of income into your employer, company, family etc., you are always looking for new ways to increase your reach. About 2 yrs ago I had the privilege of meeting Gia Heller with the National Business Experts. I was blown away by her idea of a networking group on Facebook, Arizona Women Networking. I had felt at the time Facebook was so NON business. Was I ever wrong. One of the key aspects of business is relationships. If the only way I was building new ones was through networking groups like BNI and others, I was not going to go as far as I could.
Well, I did not make a decision at that time. I hesitated. As they say, “He who hesitates, is lost.” Lost I was. I did start paying attention to her and join her open group at Friends of Gia Heller and began to figure it out. I realized that the kind of networking she was doing was so different from any other group out there.
6 months ago I went to an introduction and interview session to learn what it was all about. WOW. Arizona Women Networking had grown to add Arizona Men Networking and then grew into what is known as The National Business Experts. I joined. For $50 dollars a month, how could I turn it down?
I get 4 hours a month of Social Media Training, I get to go to two tremendous meetings a month where nationally recognized speakers come to talk about how to improve your business like Sharon Lechter of Rich Dad Poor Dad and Outwitting the Devil fame, Les Brown another nationally renowned speaker and others, membership to a local chapter of the TNBE, The Phoenix Business Experts, and further the chance to attend two networking lunches a month with a even more local chapter in my circle of influence. Really? For only $50 a month? Where else can you go to get that much for that price? But wait, there is more.
So hear is the deal. It is not a single layer deal. Networking is only one layer of this cake. There is the training, but in addition to that, through involvement with the members, you learn what to do with that training. Even if you don’t meet one single new client, or get one referral, the education you get on how to integrate your Linkedin, Twitter, Youtube, Website, Facebook Page, Facebook Profile and Blog is priceless. But wait, there is more!
Every member of The National Business Experts is your sales force. That’s right. My fellow members in the group help me by commenting on and sharing my posts to their network of friends increasing my touch exponentially. I in turn help them by doing the same. There is simply no other group I have found that is as significant and effective as this group.
If you are responsible for your companies revenues and you are not active in Social Media, I predict as well as every other expert out there, that in the next few years, you will either have no company to be responsible for, or your company will find someone to do it for you. You need to follow the links in this post and see what I mean. If you want to learn more, call me 602-571-9644. That is my personal cell phone. You can be my guest at the next Monthly Information Session and learn more. To be clear, this is NOT an MLM. I get nothing from this testimonial or you joining, other than to bring one more professional into a group that I am very proud to be a part of.
