One-to-One Policy

ABNG has a very strict One-to-One policy:

We encourage people to do one-to-ones as this is the best way to get to know each other and build the "Know, Like, and Trust" factor.
However, the first time you meet with someone, DO NOT PITCH YOUR BUSINESS. You can talk with each other about how you got into your business, but focus more on just learning about the other person.

We encourage everyone to take ABNG101 ( and learn a great approach to do one-to-ones. There is a structure and mindset for one-to-ones that will really help you build the Know, Like, and Trust factor.

If the leadership team hears about someone pitching their business, we will give you one warning. If we hear about it again, we will ban you from the group.

We have zero tolerance for pitching in ABNG. Unless someone approaches you and asks for you product or service, just work on building relationships. We promise that if you stick around the group for 6-9 months, you will get business and/or referrals from people you have built relationships with at ABNG.
