BNI 2012 International Conference Archives - Dr. Ivan Misner®

If Your Goal Is Success, You Need to Take a Look at Your Systems


In this short video, filmed at the 2012 International Conference for BNI, the networking organization I founded back in 1985, I talk with my good friend and BNI Executive Director Mark Carmody about systems and business.

Mark tells how one of the stories in Michael Gerber’s book The E-Myth caused him to have an epiphany about the value in systems and how systems can make it substantially easier to run an efficient business.  To sum things up, the more systems you incorporate into your business, the more successful you will be over time.

After watching the video, please leave your feedback in the comment forum below and share some of the systems you’ve implemented in your business that have made a significant impact on your success. It’s always inspiring and thought provoking to hear about some of the ways people are achieving success in their businesses and whether the systems you rely on in your business are basic or more out-of-the-box, I’d love to hear about them.

Andrew Hall’s “Referral Magic”

How specific are you when asking for referrals?  Do you say you want business from “somebody”. . . or “anybody”. . . or do you give the name of the specific person you want to meet?

Joining me in this brief video is Andrew Hall, a master networker based in China. Watch as Andrew tells an engaging story about the importance of being specific, or as he calls it, “Referral Magic.”

After watching the video, please leave your thoughts, comments, and/or feedback in the comment forum below . . . are you now thinking twice about how specific you are when asking for referrals?  Are you going to make a conscious effort to be more specific in your “ask” when asking for referrals in the future, or do you maybe have a tactic for being specific that you can share in order to help others? . . .
