New BNI chapter in the works

New BNI chapter in the works

I had the awesome opportunity to attend the start up meeting of a new BNI (Business Network International) chapter forming up in the area. Clyde Usher of Applied Insight Management was kind enough to extend me an invitation.

BNI chapters focus on assisting area business people in creating a referral based business.

Allen Edwards, President of Hi Q Networking, is currently a member of the only other chapter in Savannah. As BNI only allows for one member from each particular business category, he understands the need for a new chapter so that others (such as myself) can participate.

The meetings are held weekly. We have currently set the time for 11:30 on Wednesdays. Allen is looking into procuring the Shoney’s at the interchange of Hwy 204 and I-95. If that changes, it will be posted.

Spots for the business category are filled on a “first come, first serve” basis. If you are interested in joining, attending, or asking more questions, just drop an email.

For those unacquainted with BNI, you can find more information on the website.


  1. BNI is awesome. It’s the best thing we ever did. In almost three years of membership I can trace 30-40% of my business to BNI. I’m the secretary/treasurer of our chapter in Tempe, AZ.

    You’ll have a blash April.

  2. Shailesh,

    I am looking forward to it. One of my mentors told me about it and I am lucky to get into this one. It is hard for a realtor or a mortgage broker to do here.

    Glad you stopped by!
