A confession - I miscounted and thought that today’s episode would be Episode 200 of The Crushing Debt Podcast, so when you listen to that episode next week (please subscribe to the show - its free), it will sound like it was supposed to be released today.
Therefore, for Episode 199, I thought I’d talk a bit about networking. Where do I network, why, and what are some different ideas I have to generate referrals for my network? Admittedly, the idea for today’s show came when I heard two different people that I respect, at two different events, both bash the networking group that I’ve been a member of since 2004 - BNI. I know there are some who bash the organization, and maybe it has earned some of the negative publicity. However, for me, BNI has been a huge benefit, generating roughly 40% of the law firm’s revenue year over year, consistently for the past six or seven years.
Aside from that organization, and as we start 2020, what are your thoughts on Networking? What group(s) do you belong to and how do you decide which groups to join and how to participate? I would appreciate your feedback at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.
Again, please remember to subscribe if you don’t already. It is free and you can subscribe wherever you listen to the show!
