    I have been a member of the AmSpirit group for over a year now and think it is a great way to meet excited people who have the same ambitions in their chosen career.  While we all have interesting conversations amongst one another, we all have one goal in mind, Grow Leads for one another.  We have each other’s back and look for qualified leads for one another while we work in our own job.  I personally have had multiple qualified leads that have turned into great sales.

    -Jeff A.  Commercial Print Account Executive

    I was not convinced business networking groups would be a worthwhile investment of my already limited time.  I also was not comfortable referring persons I did not know very well and I did not want to be a part of a group who applied pressure to people for referrals. What I found at the Mentor AmSpirit Chapter was the polar opposite of my reservations.  The structure of the group was at a perfect level of commitment to growing other’s businesses without feeling pressured to force a referral. The continued focus on educating the group on what a good referral is was both a great reminder for existing members and a key learning for new members. The philosophy of AmSpirit is spot on when creating an environment of support, sharing of best practices and offering solid referrals. The meetings are infused with the warmth of comradery and ingrained with the purpose of promoting each other’s growth.  It is as if we are a mini sales force for each other’s business.

    I joined AmSpirit Business Connections in May 2010 to increase the depth of my network.  It is easy to go to hundreds of events and meet many people and gain nothing.  The networking landscape is indeed miles wide and inches deep.  I believe one gains real traction when one builds trust through committed relationships week in and week out.  One can easily find out who is reliable, who is competent, and who is there to serve.  I have found such a group with AmSpirit.  I have gained invaluable business connections who have assisted me toward my career goals.
