I’ve been involved with “networking” groups and “referral” groups most of my career.
While they have all played an integral role in helping me to establish the many amazing connections that I rely on daily to be successful, I always felt like there was a gap in what most people were hoping to accomplish out of being members of these groups and actually executing and getting consistent benefit from them. Where that left me was exhausted with asking for the same things week in and week out only to leave with about as much as I arrived with.
So When WAM! began their transition away from being your traditional “referral” group and into what I now describe as my peer collaboration and accountability group. I feel like we are finally addressing the root issues that business owners, salespeople, entrepreneurs, etc. struggle with rather than the go to of “I need more business!”
In summary, my business and I personally have matured and grown incrementally in the last year as a result of my involvement with WAM!
