In July, I came to realize what the words "I AM BNI" really meant to me - even after all these years. That said, it came in a rather unique way, and since then, it seems like it is all around me, all the time. We discuss the "reticular activator" in BNI a fair amount, but I must say this seems even bigger than that.
You see BNI has been in my business life for more than 19 years - when I visited what would become my first of many BNI Chapters. At the time, I was a young travel agency owner simply looking for a way to stand out in competitive market. I saw an opportunity to build our agency in a different manner than anyone else in the field, at least locally in the travel industry.
