Review: Why attend the Ohio Referral Network meetings?
What is the Ohio Referral Network? A 2 year old networking group which originated via a Facebook Fan page which quickly grew to over 1200 fans in just a few short months. Matt Byrne, founder and owner of http:// www.Myhealthquoter.com started the group with the vision of connecting business owners for increased profit and also to have a good time. This unique laid back approach to networking as spurned a break off to meetup.com (http://www.meetup.com/Ohio-Referral-Network) with almost 100 active members and 4 chapters meeting per month.
What is the Cost to be a Member? Great question- it costs nothing to attend any of the events sponsored by TORN at anytime. In fact any individual business owner or prospective business owner are encouraged to participate at the various chapters any number of times they wish- never having to pay a fee.
If you wish to join and receive special privileges, such has meetup.com sponsorship, Membership highlight speech and more then the cost is only $60!
Quite the bargain compared to other networking organizations in the Columbus area.
Chapter Locations: Torn groups meet in Westerville, Dublin, and twice in Worthington each month.
The full meeting schedule can be found on the meetup group which is free to join, linked In and on Facebook.
I attended the Business to Business Worthington gathering today, located at the Keller Williams Building off Wilson Bridge Rd in Worthington at 11:00am- 12:15pm. I was pleased to meet 8 new contacts 4 of which I found an immediate business connection. This is an unheard off occurrence in most venues.
If you wish to be a successful business professional then networking in a kin to breathing. Finding your niche group or playing the field by joining many is highly recommended by this Prosperity Adviser.
