The story of People in Business: Once upon a time, small towns had places where the unofficial town leaders met for coffee once a week to establish plans and decide about projects to help their businesses and their town grow and become profitable. In today's more populous locales, this has often been lost - a real piece of Americana that benefits everyone. People in Business was established to offer this experience to anyone who wishes to become part of something bigger than themselves...something helpful..and important.
By greeting newcomers with a handshake, helping small businesses grow, scheduling a coffee later in the week after the meeting, and taking the calls from your PIB associates, you become part of the group. This is not a sales club, a forced-referral concept, or a guaranteed sales club; it is place where people can help people, become life-long friends, solve problems, plan joint strategies, and YES, do business together. Enjoy! SMY
Would You Like to be Known as a Leader?
Leaders are seen as the people we like to associate with in business.
To be a PIB Leader is so easy! Just help your group grow by volunteering to greet at meetings, send out press releases for your group, facilitate, or become a co-coordinator to fill in if your coordinator is absent.
There are several groups who need help. Are you the one who could stand out as a LEADER?
Please call your local coordinator to see how you can benefit yourself and the group as a volunteer.
