The purpose of this group is to build relationships and help each member's business grow through professional networking. This group is for business professionals in Western North Carolina. Please have a complete profile when asking to join the group: your full name, photo of you and please answer questions in the profile.

There is a structured format but there will be plenty of time to respectfully network with others before and after the meetings.

- Leverage a team effort to help build your business.
- Increase the value of your time with efficient networking strategies.
- Get (and give) qualified referrals.
- Present your business to members so that they know who is the best referral for you.
- Set business goals and gain support for their accomplishment from within the group.

Meeting format:

1) Business card handout - BRING ENOUGH BUSINESS CARDS - at least 40!

2) The 1 minute "What I Do" speech - we go around the table. Craft your speech to comfortably fit into your 1 minute time slot :-)

3) Appreciation - anyone can mention anything or anyone that they appreciate.

4) Announcements - other business events in the area.

5) Partner up - everyone gets to partner up with another group member to meet with in the next week or so.

Our motto is 'Help People, Make Money and Have Fun!'

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
