I lucked out tremendously from joining BNI in my early days (4 years). It taught me a lot about giving first and building long-term relationships. I was reminded of it while listening to a podcast I recently recorded with 2 other BNIers.
People forget about giving.
About providing value.
About being of service.
It’s one of the best business strategies of all time. It’s not just a BNI thing. It’s a life thing.
