Networking Success Story - Walter Miska - Craft Beer Cellar of Westford

As small business owners we all know the importance of stepping away from the daily requirements of operating our business  to work on sustaining and growing our customer base.  We also know just how impossible this feels at times. Organized networking organizations have been the best manner that I have found to motivate myself to schedule time for this most important activity.  Prior to opening Craft Beer Cellar about a month ago, I was the owner of a very successful embroidery and printing business.  Networking in several business, commerce and charitable organizations was a significant part of the marketing program that allowed us to start, grow and sell our profitable business.  We belonged to these groups for the entire eight years of ownership, and truly believe that our success was due in large part to in person networking and the resulting word of mouth marketing. The cost effectiveness of this marketing approach is without question the best deal in advertising. 

 

That said, joining a networking organization in itself is not enough. It does take some effort on the part of the business representative to attend group events and when possible, give back to others in the group.  It is just as important to select the right networking group for your organization, a group that you are comfortable in, and one with the right leaders and members to be of mutual benefit.

 

One month into my new venture, and I am confident that joining the Friends of Kevin is one decision that will be essential to the success of Craft Beer Cellar.  I am excited to be a member of this group, and look forward to making new friends.  

 

Cheers!

Walter Miska, Head Beer Geek

Networking Success Story - Nelia Benjamin - NJB Accounting Solutions

Nelia Benjamin is a busy Accounting Consultant who, from time to time, uses networking organizations to build her network of professional services.  She keeps these on hand for when her clients have a need.
 
Nelia is the President and founder of NJB Accounting Solutions. For over 16 years NJB Accounting Solutions has relied on word of mouth referral from grateful and satisfied clients. Clients such as Paychex payroll services have chosen to work closely with Nelia for over 7 years due to the excellent care and service that Nelia offers her clients
 
NJB Accounting Solutions offers all the traditional Accounting Services i.e. :income tax preparation, bookkeeping, Quick Books training, IRS projects, meals tax preparation, etc. In addition Nelia offers subcontracted Controller or CFO services for many of her clients. 

NJB Accounting Solutions provides services to many different industries from medical, to retail, restaurant, professional services, contractors, and so on.
Nelia is on the road daily visiting and working with clients. She offers in-house services as well as what the traditional local CPA does.
Nelia also coaches businesses from  inception to growth and/or termination of the businesses. "I love what I do because I change the world one person at a time. My clients tell me that I make such a difference in their business lives as well as personal. Being a business coach allows me to also do a lot of personal coaching it really goes hand in hand. if you have problems in the business it's going to infiltrate in the personal life and vice-versa."
 
Nelia continues to grow her practice slowly because her number one priority is to make each client feel like they are the only one she has.
Nelia has a small part-time staff that assists her. As a result of networking she has the opportunity to also give back to community by partnering up with employment organizations where she loves to train people that want to go into the accounting field and are unemployed.
 
Nelia's advice to networkers is to make it a long term commitment and just enjoy the process. It's about making a solid network of good relationships and giving before taking.
 "People need to know that you are real and trustworthy before they commit to giving you a referral. I chose quality networking partners that will take excellent care of my client’s needs. I am very protective of my clients and expect excellent service and integrity from the businesses that I network with and refer to my clients or that I use to service my own needs because that is how I operate in return. I truly enjoy networking because to me I am visiting with friends or making new friends. I feel like a little kid back in school. I just love people and really enjoy their company. Now that I have staff I am looking forward to network more and even hosting networking events at my office located at 224 Main street in Salem NH at the Santo Professional Building."
