I have said for years that unequivocally, the single BEST thing I have ever done for my business was join BNI. I first met you at a recruiting event at some funeral parlor off E. Washington street... what a bizarre and long time ago. It has been a heck of a ride from our humble beginnings in chain Optometry to our new a modern facility that we currently call 'home'. Over the 15 years, we required all 3 of our docs to become members, as well as multiple managers. They have ALL benefited from the group both personally and professionally. I can't thank you enough for that glimpse of confidence you gave me all those years ago, and of course all of the professional mentorship and guidance you instilled upon me along the way. Somehow you always made time for my emails and lunch 1 on 1's together and I never took for granted how busy your schedule was. I just wanted to reach out and let you know, from halfway across the globe, that YOU have created something special and have impacted my life beyond simple words. Without BNI, I could not be where I am at professionally. Without BNI, I would not have the business skills or the networking abilities to make meaningful lifelong connections. Without BNI I would not have some of my lifelong friends and TRUE business partnerships. Without BNI I would not have been able to grow as quickly and seamlessly in my multiple businesses and revenue off shoots. Simply put, without BNI, I would not be where I am today in my business. But more importantly, without BNI, I would not be where I am as a human being, as BNI has truly transformed my life from shy medial nerd to confident entrepreneur! Hazel... THANK YOU!!!
