Whilst working for yourself at home is great it also has its challenges: you can be easily distracted, it can be hard to keep up with technology as you are not mixing with others and theres nobody to bounce ideas off and share business strategies and goals with.
It was suggested to me by a client to attend a Networking breakfast. It sounded like a good idea until I heard I had to speak about myself for a few minutes ! But what the heck I thought, lets give it a go.
The experience certainly opened my eyes and I could see the value in it for my business and my personal development. The group which I won’t name, focus very strongly on leads and goals; the group was run from South Perth, the annual fee was expensive and I later found out that they are self-run so joining the group would involve an additional amount of my time. I felt that the negatives out weighed the positives so decided to see if I could find an alternative that was closer to home !
SBN was bought to my attention by a client and I was later invited to a breakfast to see what it was all about. After visiting two different groups I decided to join the SBN Cockburn group that meet up at Glen Iris Gold Club twice a week.
I was impressed by the fact that the group focussed more on business coaching than leads, they were less pushy and goal orientated and that David, who runs SBN, actually runs the groups leaving me with more time to concentrate on my work 🙂
If anyone thinks that SBN could benefit their business and would like an invitation to come along for a breakfast to get to know what the group is all about – I urge you to speak to myself or David.
