Whether you’ve been in BNI for a month or years, it’s good to know that if we are following the advice of founder, Dr. Ivan Misner, we will have a formula for success. Referral passing is not about simply giving someone a phone number or an email address: It’s really about vetting good, solid leads for one another, so that when the referral is finally made, there’s very little chance for failure.

Dr. Misner has a wonderful blog which he updates regularly—about every 3 to 4 days. His advice about networking is invaluable. I encourage you to take advantage of this valuable resource. Just read one post a day at the beginning of the day and see how it effects your networking practices.
