These formal relationships become the foundation for increasing your business referrals. If referrals are an important part of your business, then the Thursday Gaithersburg Breakfast Professionals Chapter is the organization for you. BNI Thursday Gaithersburg Breakfast Professionals meets every Thursday in Gaithersburg, Maryland, at the Holiday Inn Gaitersburg, MD.

Belonging to BNI is like having dozens of sales people working for you because all the other members carry several copies of your business cards around with them. When they meet someone who could use your products or services, they hand that person your card and recommend your services. It's as that simple because it's based on the proven concept of "what goes around, comes around." If I help you, you'll help me and we will both benefit as a result. Would you like to increase your business by 20%, 30%, 50% or as much as 100%?

  • You can see results like this! Many have. Some participants have added as many as 50 new clients in the first 2 years!

  • BNI provides a structured environment for the development and exchange of quality business referrals. It does so by providing an environment in which you develop personal relationships with dozens of other qualified business professionals.

By establishing this "formal" relationship with other people, you will have the opportunity to substantially increase your business.

Misner, Ph.D., BNI-Business Network Int'l. provides a positive, supportive and structured environment to further business through word of mouth marketing.
