Getting out of your comfort zone isn’t easy. But BNI member Marim Abdul found that once she got out of her own, success wasn’t far behind.
Since she considers herself shy, Marim knew she would need to get out of her shell to acquire clients when she started her insurance business. Knowing that BNI provided a place to generate referrals, Marim decided to join her local Southern California chapter. And in just five years, she went from zero clients to over 300.
Marim says about one-third of her clients are directly from BNI referrals, but the other two-thirds are from the networking skills that she has developed as a BNI member.
In her words, “I am thankful for this organization, which provided me with tools to get out of my comfort zone and to really succeed in my referral marketing activities. The success I have found in my business is definitely a tribute to being a BNI member.”
