I'm continuing my series of 60 second presentations for many reasons, but one of them is to promote the aweseom members we have at the Chateau Elan Networking Elites Group located in the Chateau Elan area.   If you missed it, you can see Tony Woodall with Coffee News here. This time I'm highlight Taun Henderson (rhymes with "Shawn"), with Compupay - a payroll and servicing company.  Taun is an awesome speaker and mentor for our chapter.  He has helped me break down networking and teach me how to get and more importantly how to give more out of it. Taun's famous in this area for his Dr.'s coat, afterall he's the "Payroll Doctor" and of course, his favorite question: "Oh by the way, who does your payroll?" So without further ado, it's time to "Take your headaches away, choose the experts ...

Chateau Elan Netowrking Elites BNI group has become the premiere group in the Chateau Elan area located in Braselton, GA.  BNI, like the chamber of commerce has a 60 second commercial or elevator pitch or spotlight presentation.  Most new networkers have never done one and, although I am completely biased, I think we have some of the best. Here's Tony Woodall with the Coffee News:

Ask anyone who lives in the area what's Braselton, known for, it's always, ROAD ATLANTA.  If you ask any racing enthusiast, what is Braselton, GA known for, it's ... ROAD ATLANTA. Sure, Chateau Elan is here, but outside the lavish setting, the wine really "ain't" all that great.... or so I'm told. So it make sense that Hyundai would choose this location to shoot the new commercial for the Genesis. "For one thing the topography of the track is incredible," said Patricia Romero, Hyundai's national advertising manager. "There's a lot of turns, hairpin turns, hills --- you can really show it off.  There's a lot of landscape to choose from." The commercial will air early 2009, with sales in Spring.

In just a few short weeks the Chateau Elan Networking Elites group will have 40 strong members all passing over 50 referrals a WEEK!  These are not leads, these are warm to HOT sizzling referrals.  What's especially great about the group is the attitude everyone has about the economy.  We all see it as a huge opportunity to capitalize on getting more effecient and capturing market share from those that aren't willing to do the extra work.  If you're a business owner in Jackson, Barrow, Hall or Gwinnett Counties you owe it to yourself to check us out.  We meet at Reunion Golf Club for the moment.

Although we started this networking group back in May of '08, we didn't begin in earnest until Jan of '09.   Year to date I have had over 3 Million in referrals passed to me, with $1.5 Million currently listed.  Now one might look at that and suggest it has something to do with the Chateau Elan location.  Actually, no, most of the referrals have been first time home buyers or first time sellers. The best referral so far has been from Jeff Powell of Professional Pool Service to list this beautiful home in Lawrenceville at 333 Brook Lea Cove, Lawrenceville GA. The biggest "A HA" moment has been to learn to ask for what I want, then be ready to give myself completely to the other members in the group.  Only by helping them, am I creating opportunities that fall into my lap.   I just listed...

Networking isn’t as easy as just showing up to an event and handing out business cards. Networking is an art. It's not Net-eat, net-shove-business -cards, net-relax, it's netWORK. As president of the  Chateau Elan networking group, I've seen individuals of all ranges with varying ranges of success.  Here are 5 tips that I have found in the more successful networkers. 1. Wait for the right window of opportunity to share your information. Show an interest in others first and then when the focus turns to you, share your business card and business goals. When someone walks in handing out business cards indiscriminately, it’s tantamount to “network spamming.”  In our networking group, we have a question, "How Can I help you with your business?"  As the person thinks, it in turn makes them wa...
