Professional Goals 2013

A recent survey by Linkedin found that the #1 goal listed for 2013 was “Professional Development Through Learning New Skills.”  It was closely followed by #2 “Network More/Build More Professional Relationships.”

I think both can be accomplished by joining the right networking group!

For those reading this in the Nashville, TN area, I suggest The Business Referral Network


The general website explains the mission and goals of the organization.  


For a specific example of how a chapter works, please visit one of our facebook pages:

Do You Want To Grow Your Business?


Do you want to grow your business? ….of course you do….dumb question!


The better question is….”HOW will you grow your business?”  Some associated questions come to mind:

What is your product or service and what is your competitive advantage?

How will you tell others about it efficiently and in a cost effective manner?

Can you tell me what your product or service is in such a compelling manner that it makes me want to know more?  Can you do it in 60 seconds???

What have you done lately to improve your sales skills?  Found a mentor?  Read any good books? Discovered any new tools?  Are you stuck in a rut?

I’m convinced that one of the best ways to answer these questions can be found in networking groups.  In a structured setting you can advertise your business, learn about other businesses, develop trust among your peers, practice your selling skills, and earn referrals from people you know and trust.

I urge you to find a networking group today and continue to grow your business….because the work is never done!
