This is a rebroadcast of Episode 171.
Sam Schwartz, National Director and franchise owner for BNI in Israel, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Romania, and the Director of Training for BNI in Europe, joins Dr. Misner on the podcast today.
Any business coach or entrepreneur would tell you the business model of BNI doesn’t make sense. We give our members the power to choose our future clients. We tell successful entrepreneurs, “You have to volunteer your time, you have to help other people to get business, you have to play by BNI’s rules, and you have to pay a membership fee. Not only that, you can’t join a chapter without being sponsored by an existing member.”
But BNI gets results. Not only does it bring its members business through referrals, but also personal growth, knowledge, and all the other benefits of being in a room full of people you trust. This model works all over the world, counter-intuitive or not.
