How do you Network Cincinnati?

Do you show up 15 minutes early to the meetings? Do you go up to people you don’t know and introduce yourself? Do you pass out your cards at every meeting? Do you accept cards from everyone at every meeting?

If you are not doing any of these things you may be missing the boat on building relationships. TBN does not promote passing out referrrals at each meeting, we promote building relationships so that your referrals are warm and ready!

Showing up 15 minutes early to meetings gives you a “golden” opportunity to meet the new people or to meet with someone in order to find out more about them.

Introducing yourself to someone new will make the new people more comfortable about being in a new place and allow them to be able to relax while networking so they can be themselves.

Passing out your cards at every meeting allows you the first step to networking, but not the only thing you should do to get a referral.

Taking each and every card that comes your way allows the ability to pass out that persons card to a possible referral.

TBN is all about opportunity that should be taken advantage of. Too many times structure limits your ability to truly network as much as possible. If you wish to have a schedule to our meetings, please send me an email at
