PBN's Guiding Principles
- Each prospective member
must submit the rules of seven. The Leadership
Team will review prospective members and give approval.
How to Become a Member.
- There is no competition
among members. Each group member represents
a unique business niche.
- Each member represents
the best in class. The caliber and quality
of their work and networking should speak for itself,
since professionalism is the key to giving quality
referrals and obtaining new members and guests.
- All members will actively
participate in the group. This includes
attending meetings, inviting guests, meeting one-on-one
with members, and making referrals. The emphasis
is placed on each member pro-actively adding value
to the group. If members are not pro-active, they
will be asked to evaluate their usefulness to the
group in their business and possibly leave the group.
- All members will act
with integrity regarding network business and referrals. Each member will: follow through on all referrals
to both the prospect and lead provider, make a business-like
presentation to the prospect, and treat the referral
with respect. Members will share their experiences
of how they treat referrals with new members.
