Local Businesses Building Each Other Up

On Wednesday, I went to visit a local Business Networking International (BNI) chapter, Givers Gain 4 Life, and their Business Expo. There were many businesses set up as vendors and many guests visiting their tables. I met some great local business men and women!

Some of those businesses included This Side Up Moving, Advocare with Sara Edelman, Raeley Stevenson Photography, Rocket City Property Management, local Farmers Insurance Agent Nicole Stiltner, Madison Family Care, Healing Haven with Christine Childress, and many more.

Givers Gain 4 Life meets weekly at the Huntsville Country Club on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to noon. The BNI chapter’s weekly meetings create the opportunity for the group to build relationships with each other, which allows them to give warm referrals to quality local businesses, as well as learn how to contribute to other locally owned small businesses in Huntsville and Madison.

I walked around and met local business owners and team members from all different kinds of businesses. From personal and health services like Huntsville Adventure Boot Camp and Pampered Chef, to home services such as ShutterLuxe Custom Blinds and B&D HVAC Services , to business services, I made some great connections at this fun event.

I try to network throughout the year, to learn about other local companies, to meet other local business owners considering a DEAR Inventory implementation, and to keep my company, Functional Chiropractic, up to date on local business opportunities. BNI is a great way to do this, and I had a lot of fun at the Business Expo. Someone even had doughnuts! I love doughnuts.

Check out some of these great local companies we met at the business expo, and if you own, operate, or even just want to grow your business, check out the Givers Gain 4 Life BNI chapter!
