As we approach the end of 2022, I would like to connect with all of you and wish you a healthy and prosperous 2023.
As I get older, I have come to realize that no year is perfect. They all come with some “ups” and some “downs.” Some have more of one than the other. This year has had both for me.
One of the most significant “up” moments for me personally, was the realization that BNI®, the business networking organization I founded in 1985, will complete 2022 with 38 years of consecutive growth. Year over year, BNI has grown every year during its history. There are very few companies around the world that can say that.
Today, we are serving over 297,000 members all around the world. We will have helped members generate almost $20 Billion (USD) in Thank You For Closed Business for each other in the past rolling twelve months. The ripple effect of successful chapters around the world can be felt in local communities globally.
I am humbled and honored to still be a part of this organization and I want to personally reach out to members and directors and thank you for your involvement in this amazing organization. I appreciate all of you who follow my blog and I look forward to staying connected with you through social media in the coming year.
Wishing you continued networking success!
