A Talk of Dogs and Rugs at BNI Money Makers Chapter Meeting
The Meeting today at BNI Money Makers Chapter went very well as usual. After Teresa Agnew, the president called the meeting in order, we had a couple of leadership announcements and educational talk was delivered by Al Knobloch the educational coordinator. He talked about how BNI members could get more business by paying attention to some simples issues. Jean Libonate who is the treasurer gave us a report. Then every body had a 45 seconds to introduce himself/herself. When my turn came, I told the members a short story about a client of mine who once had a rug. Her dog didn't like it, so the rug was damaged by the dog and our client brought the rug to us for repair. We did a cosmetic repair and restoration. The client was very happy with our work and loved the newly repaired rug and so did the dog. The story definitely left a mark at the meeting.
We also had two speakers who talked for 6 minutes each. One on marketing and the other on home construction and remodeling. The meeting started at 8:00 am and finished right on time at 9:30 am. I have to be at work by 10:00 am so I like Tresa's strictness in finishing up the meeting right at 9:30 am. Of course those who want to network and mingle, can stay for a little longer if they wish to!
