"I initially joined because I liked the atmosphere, the connections/ people
(these connection refer me to other people), and because it's not focused on simply selling yourself. In other networking groups people show up to sell their biz and that's it. Here, it's more about making friends and getting to know the people first and not just getting a product or service shoved down your throat. Because of that, I've renewed my membership for the last two years!"
