He Came For Advice But Got More
Networking Nights business leaders met on August 19th to discuss “Needs & Leads.” Since implementing the “Needs & Leads” format a few short months ago, many businesses have benefited. The meeting on August 19th highlighted the difference between generic “business advice” and real, practical “business mentoring” when one of the members came with the need for some funding advice and left with names and phone numbers of people who could help.
“One thing we’ve noticed about these ‘Needs & Leads’ sessions,” said founder Laraine Chamberlain, “is that people often come away with solid ‘next steps’ to overcome their particular challenges – and often the key to moving forward is a simple introduction to a particular person or service. Our Networking Nights members pull out their contact lists and share important relationships they’ve already developed. I am amazed by the depth and quality of our members’ contacts.”
The group now meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month at the Spanish Fork Macey’s Grocery Store “little theater” from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. It is free to join. Members are given multiple opportunities to present information about their businesses and may have the opportunity to be presenters or “highlighted businesses. “
On September 2nd, presenter Maurice Evans will discuss ways to protect yourself and your business legally. Maurice owns Maurice Evans Agency and is an associate for Legal Shield.“On September 16th, financial expert Chris Miles will lead us in “The Abundance™ Game,” a fun, thought-provoking and instructive game. All are invited, but space is limited. Interested parties should RSVP by contacting Laraine Chamberlain at the email address below. On this occasion only, the Networking Nights meeting will begin early and end late in order to accommodate the game. Refreshments will be from 6:15-6:30 and the game will start promptly at 6:30 and conclude at 9:00 PM.
