Grow Your Community Grow Your Network

Grow Your Community Grow Your Network

Grow Your Community, Grow your Network

Each week at BNI4Success, we'll talk about referral networking networks. We'll discuss networking tips, strategies and action steps that are designed to help entrepreneurs and businesses work together to create quality referral business and explore new opportunities.

Hi, I’m Cys Bronner, Executive Director of BNI4Success, BNI’s Greater Los Angeles regions and today’s topic is Grow Your Community, Grow your Network.

Networking is a contact sport! Whoa – that sounds pretty aggressive, doesn’t it? 
But it came from Dr. Ivan Misner himself, so it must be true, right? 

And it is – it’s all in the way you hear it and the way you apply it. 

For me, it’s taking off the bib and putting on the apron – and no, that doesn’t mean being a housewife and cleaning up after people, it means getting involved. 

Effective networking begins in the community. We have BNI community all around us, we call them chapters. 

But that is finite – we want MORE don’t we? We want to expand our networks; we want it all.  

First you have to be visible in the greater community around you.  You have to get out there and connect with people – what better way to plant those seeds, to be a farmer instead of a hunter than by giving. 

As business leaders in the community, we have a responsibility to give back, to give to organizations like the ones we have here at our power breakfast with us. Give – it’s so much a part of who we are in BNI that’s it’s our main philosophy, in fact you can all say it with me. Our main philosophy, Giver’s Gain. 

The grass isn’t greener where you plant it, the grass is greener where you water it. I have an assignment for everyone here today.

Assignment: Your assignment today involves identifying two local events or community initiatives that align with your chapter's values and objectives. Or your business's values and objectives. Make a plan for your chapter members to attend, to participate, or even sponsor these events. It could be a local charity run, a business fair, or a community clean-up.

Create a strategy to leverage social media to showcase your chapter's involvement in these events. Capture photos, share stories, engage with the community online. Use platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to not only document your participation but also to connect with other businesses and potential referral partners.

Get up, get creative, and get involved in your community. Your business can help make the world a little bit better!

Remember, the key is to authentically integrate your BNI chapter into the community, establishing it as a valuable and contributing member. That not only enhances your chapter's reputation but also opens up new networking opportunities within the local business landscape.

Get out there, get involved, and watch yourself AND your BNI chapter flourish!

 Cys Bronner: I'm Cys Bronner. I have the honor of being your co-host today. I am not just a BNI person, which I enjoy immensely as an Executive Director here in BNI Greater Los Angeles, but I don't know if you've ever noticed, my title here is Gratitude Evangelist, which I have been for more years. Then I can count and when I met Norm Dominguez who hosts here usually, I was also a Gratitude Evangelist and through the years and carrying on this relationship, I'm honored to be here with all of you as that to thank you so much and I'm excited to get started today. 

But here's the moment I've been waiting for. And that is our guest today is Hema Matthew. I know her through a chance meeting in my BNI world. She is the CEO and Creative Director of Bijhem DevOps. She's also a positivity servant. I would love to go on and on about her, but I'm not going to. 

As much as she touches my heart and is probably my new favorite top positivity people in the group that I know. I want you to meet her and have her speak to her and her topic today is Show That You Care. 

Hema Mathew: Thank you, Cys, for such a warm welcome and introduction. I just adore you. So, thank you. 

Thank you, Norm, for having me. I am just honored to be here among other positive servants. 

You all are fantastic, and I feel like I've missed out all these years not knowing you all. So I'm so happy to be here. So, my name is Hema Mathew. I'm the CEO and the Creative Director of Bijhem DevOps

I have a business here in San Antonio. We do web development, digital marketing and mobile apps, web apps. We help small businesses get online presence and grow and scale. So that's what we do. 

So, a little bit about me. I was born in India. I was raised there in Chennai till I was about 10. And then my dad started his university here in Oklahoma and was doing his MBA. So, he just moved the entire family over here. So, from then we've been in Oklahoma. And I went to school at the University of Oklahoma, and I met my husband there at the tender age of 18 on the very first day of college, in the very first class. And he was this talkative guy and just extremely serious. He was a chemical engineering major, so extremely smart. We just hit it off right away. And we've been, we dated for 10 years and then we got married, and we've been married for 24 years, and he got recruited to the University of Texas here in San Antonio because they were trying to take small business ideas and take it to the market. And literally they've been looking for someone. To just come and help them do that. And they were looking for two to three years and anyway, they tracked him down in DC, so they made him an offer. 

So, we moved here, and it's been a blessing for our family. We love it in San Antonio. I love the city. I love the state of Texas. We had three small kids. No, not small anymore but see sweet kids. Our oldest is 20 and he's studying biomedical engineering. He's hoping to go into medicine. He wants to be a surgeon so and he's one positive guy. So, I I would love for him to join us one of these days because he's so positive about health about God and. And just inspires everybody around him. So, he's studying biomedical.
