My Favorite BNI StoryJason Wheeler, founder of DNC gave me a cold call and invited me to come visit his lunch group. This group was too small to be classified as a BNI chapter as they had about a dozen people. I had been invited to BNI chapters before and many were in the morning which was not a good time for me back then. Also, I had attended other hard referral groups, but was unimpressed. From the very first time I stepped into the room with the future DNC chapter, I knew this group was different and felt I was with a strong group of professionals who were friendly, savvy, and earnest.

My Ideal Referral PartnerMy ideal referral partner is not from a single classification, but has certain characteristics. This person(s) is a someone who is well connected within the local communities via multiple sources: through service organizations such as Rotary, business groups such as Chambers of Commerce, and are active networkers. Historically, the best referral sources are in financial-related fields such as CPA’s, mortgage brokers, financial advisors
