Wow, there is such a divide in the comments about BNI in particular. I do highly believe in networking, but BNI just wasn’t for me. The initial cost was too much and I thought that weekly meetings were a little over the top.

It took me a while to find a local networking group that I felt comfortable with, and have since joined the local Chamber of Commerce. I found that working for yourself can be quite lonely, and I craved that human contact (that didn’t include my children!!). Whilst our Chamber is slightly removed from my business (it’s focus is on businesses within our main street) it has allowed me to network with many different businesses and I now do the adminstration work for them.

Thanks everyone for your comments!!
