Networking Success Story - Rob Chase - A Classic Touch Celebration

My celebration of life company focuses heavily on care giving and fostering relationships between my company and my clients as well as the business partners that I work with to provide these services.  My company provides a new type of service to the public that, up until now, most people had to provide for themselves.  Therefore, I knew right from the beginning that one of the major challenges that I’d face would be in educating the general public and other businesses in what it is that my company offers.  I have used business networking in the past to help me grow my other business (I am also an attorney), so I knew that I would need to do the same to grow my new celebration of life company.  There are many different kinds of networking groups out there.  Some are more structured and rigid in their format, while others are very informal.  They all have their pros and cons. 

I met Kevin Willett at another networking group.  What impressed me about him and his group, Friends of Kevin, was the amount of business contacts to which both he and his group had access.  Kevin is very dedicated in fostering relationships between businesses as well as consumers.  He spends an exceedingly large amount of his time bringing consumers and businesses together, matching the needs of one to the offerings of the other.  When I decided to expand the services offered by my company, Kevin was able to provide me with the right business contacts to help me provide these new services at a high level of quality.  I, in turn, am able to refer the businesses and consumers with which I do business to other trusted professionals that are in my networking sphere.  All of this has been made possible through my association with Friends of Kevin.

Networking Success Story - Steve Wallace

I learned early on in my career that business is about relationships. But being new to the industry, I didn't know how to cultivate the necessary relationships that would be beneficial in helping me grow my business. Before long, I was being encouraged to attend business networking events, but found that most of the advertised events I went to didn't serve my purposes. What attracted me to Friends of Kevin is actually what makes the group so great; I was referred to Kevin Willett by one of his members, Brian Gardner. Since my initial meeting with Kevin, and after attending his networking events for the past two years, this is what I have learned from my experiences with Friends of Kevin: the people that attend his events and are in his groups are interested in providing competitive value to their customers. I choose to do the same by having a large network of trusted professionals, almost all of which were met through Friends of Kevin. By having experienced professionals in my network, who I now call friends, I become more of a trusted advisor to my clients than an insurance or investment salesman, because they can count on me to refer them to the right people, in addition to everything else I do. I'm able to be that trusted advisor, thanks to networking in Friends of Kevin

Networking Success Story - Roshni Pecora - Northeast Dance Center

For me networking is a wonderful way to share my enthusiasm and passion about the business of not only teaching dance but connecting with our community and youth. You never know who you are going to meet, the people you can connect with, form relationships with and ultimately inspire or help. Also I use networking as a challenge to myself. Being somewhat shy by nature networking makes me step out of my comfort zone in return I have gained more self confidence and trust in myself.
