As part of my local business networking, I have joined BNI here in Orange County, CA. BNI is a worldwide structured business networking group that has put a rocket booster on my business. Members meet once a week and among other things, exchange referrals. Networking online is great but you must get involved locally as well. I encourage you to check out a BNI group in your area and see if it’s for you.
For my group, the Octopus Network, I have opened a new Facebook group. If you are a small business in Orange County, CA come take a look and if you would like to visit us please drop me an email and I will help you out. We meet every Thursday at 8AM in Mission Viejo, CA
