My BNI Story
Heartfelt gratitude expressed for BNI Insomniacs chapter.

Dear Bijay & Anna,

I would like to express my gratitude and share my achievement with you. I work for a multinational company, Regus, offering business solutions to clients worldwide.

BNI has supplemented me with the additional [...]




My BNI Story

When I first joined BNI I was not sure it would work for me. Now that has all changed.  BNI works if you work the network.

I have been having steady new business weekly and I am very happy with BNI.

Work the network, join, and learn.  BNI will teach you how to grow your business.

My BNI Story

Our 13-year-old son Brendon is learning the value of money, not just to have it but what to do with it. I am a financial adviser with a vested interest in teaching my son about work and money. Brendon earns every dollar he gets. Instead of giving him an allowance, we pay him $5/hour for work he does around the house.

But Brendon has taken it [...]




My BNI Story

A familiar proverb says that necessity is the mother of invention. I have recently discovered that good things are also born out of aggravation. Some ladies in our “Flavius,” Kempten, Bavaria, chapter complained to me that the BNI stick-pins were damaging their clothes. “Can you come up with a safe and attractive alternative to the stick pin?” they asked me.

It was good timing. I had [...]




My BNI Story
John Madigan honors BNI in his new song, “Looking Out for You.”

I joined BNI because a friend asked me to come to a meeting. He is a business coach and a member of BNI. When I asked my friend for advice on my struggling entertainment business, he recommended BNI as a possible source of business. I went because I respected his opinion and needed a solution, as my business had suffered since the property bubble burst [...]

My BNI Story

I move around. A lot. As the wife of a senior-level executive, I’ve supported my husband’s career climb through six geographic moves in 15 years. I chose life coaching as a profession, in part, because I can work with clients over the phone from anywhere in the world.

That works well for income, but not so well for building a powerful in-person network. What I really [...]




My BNI Story

When 21 year old Katie Eubanks started at Anytime Fitness in 2010, she was just looking for a job that would help her pay for school at the University of North Alabama.  She worked on a commission basis as a trainer, between attending classes and studying.  Her goal was to keep the amount of her student loans under $10,000.

And then something happened that made that [...]




I’m Connected
Business expansion to neighboring states made possible through BNI.

I’m a member of the Belleville, IL chapter as an Energy Consultant. My business Consultant suggested I expand my business to 5 states but gave me no instruction on how. Enter BNI. Because as members we are able to visit other chapters I have now expanded my business to Indianapolis, IN and Columbus, Ohio.

This expansion wouldn't have been possible without BNI. What is notable is [...]




My BNI Story
Why I’m a disciple of BNI.

I started selling insurance with my company in September, 2008. In October, 2008 I joined a local BNI group, and am still a member today and currently filling the VP role.  Last week I was in Mexico on an awards event/trip with my company.  I walked across the stage to receive four annual awards and recognition for achieving career milestones.

When I did the math, I [...]
