I’ve been in business for just a little over a year now, and to say that it’s been has a rollercoaster, would of course be an understatement.
Back in June last year, while the pandemic was in full swing and I was still finding my feet in business, I was invited as a visitor to my first ever BNI meeting. Now, I can’t say that I knew what to expect before attending, but what I actually found there was an incredibly professional and welcoming group of local business owners.
Following this first meeting, I found myself sold on BNI’s simple but highly-effective ideology of “Givers Gain” – I give you business, so you in turn give me business. Shortly after the meeting, I signed up as a member and proudly took my exclusive seat as the only Digital Marketing business in the BNI Royal Navan chapter.
As cliché as it sounds, I can honestly say that I haven’t looked back since. In the space of just 10 months, I’ve seen my business grow more than I ever would have expected. BNI has transformed not just my business, but also me as a business owner. This is mainly thanks to the amazing business referrals passed on to me by my fellow chapter members!
This isn’t where the story ends though. To my utter surprise, I was recently asked to take on the very prestigious role of becoming the incoming Chapter President, starting April this year. Of course, I accepted, and I’m now very happy to say that I’m extremely excited and completely ready to take on the new role!
So, if you’re interested in joining a like-minded group of independent entrepreneurs, as well as finding out how BNI can help your business both over the short and long term, just get in touch with me today – I’d be more than happy to help!
