I love GR. This is my second time being a member after a short break away to transition my business.
Our group is high energy, highly motivated entrepreneurs.
I love that I can visit any of the groups any time and I have a profile and promotional space to share all of my services, workshops and specials.

The energy felt was amazing and being part of a project of this magnitude is really a plus that propels us further into our dreams.
GR helped me to push myself and get out of my comfort zone, I appreciate being a part of such an active group.

GR is more than a networking group it is an ongoing wealth of knowledge and inspiration. They don’t have limited restrictions as to where I can be and where I can network and how to manage my business. Also, I get to add value to each group that I attend by sharing what I have learned from other groups. I have acquired invaluable knowledge through the 'Tricks of the Trade' and Coach's tip. This alone is worth the membership.

“I look forward to meeting with my own personal team of supporters every week for a morning of motivation and learning. GR has given me a venue to meet, and benefit from creating relationships with, other business owners that I wouldn’t get being in the office all day. The opportunities for growth, both personal and business, are endless!” ”I was so pleased also that my connection with GR had a hand in helping my niece get the perfect summer employment to coincide with her University program!”

The most important thing GR has provided for me is CONNECTIONS and that is the best way to succeed at anything in life! The Carp Connections helped build self-confidence and the Stittsville Solutions have influenced my business in ways never imagined! Thank you to each and everyone one of my connections from GR!

The experience has been very good. The success of a GR Business Networking group is directly correlated to the quality of people and the creation of an open culture of trust and relationship building and active referral occurrences.
Our group strives to achieve this in each week's meeting.
GR works if you work it!

I am very happy with the decision that I made to join GR. Our group is committed to building our group and connections. We believe that by getting to know each other, we will be better able to refer friends/clients and know that they will be taken care of. What I also like about our group is the sharing of everyone’s ideas and experience to help grow our own individual businesses. Everyone is at a different point in their careers and has many success stories and ideas to share. Our weekly meeting is a much anticipated point in my week.

I joined GR because the platform offers me the most versatile platform for connecting with business minded professionals who can attend to the needs of my clients, friends, and family. I renewed with GR because I have experienced success with it and recognize Margaret-Ann's efforts to support me and my goals within GR.
What I appreciate about GR and this networking forum, is the professionalism, inclusion and business respect I have encountered.
All business models are respected with each local group. For the first time, I have found and been part of a networking group that respects my industry, the consultants and is interested in fostering education and truth in the validity of the network marketing industry.
”I started my journey with GR Business Networking 2 years ago to simply meet like minded professional, however, I had no idea how the network would change my business. Building relationships with passionate entrepreneurs has increased my motivation, my confidence and skill sets. Networking it is something you have to commit to weekly, engage throughout your meeting and make it a point to get to know others in the group. These steps will no doubt grow your business.
In 2016, 58% of my business was directly through the GR network!! GR networking group will introduce you to new opportunities to grow and build your business.”
Realtor – Keller Williams Integrity Realty, Brokerage
Comparing to the previous business networking group I was part of, lacked the friendliness, and willingness to help others build their business - which is a very important part of participating in a referral network. Building my referral network with GR is laying down the foundation that will help me succeed, and help me help others succeed.
In 2016 I had 160% more business than over 2015.
Slow and steady.

I love GR because I get to meet tons of like-minded business people. It’s helpful for me to see what works in other industries and what doesn’t work. The meetings are always informative and friendly which means that I’m always looking forward to them. The kicker is that I get to visit all of the other chapters across the city any time that I want!

I’ve been part of other networking groups before, and it seemed like it was the same story over and over. Members complaining about why they never got referrals, or complaining why I wasn’t able to keep up with the number of referrals I was supposed to give out.
So, I hesitated a lot before I joined a networking group after these experiences, because it was not part of my values to push people, and force them into selling what I was doing.
I attended 2 meetings with GR, and I can tell you I was very impressed and surprised. Yes, serious entrepreneurs and business minded people, but also very down to earth, fun, respectful, and open minded people that actually want sit down and talk to you to get to know you better.
I am a young entrepreneur starting to grow, and joining GR gave me the confidence to share what I was doing without feeling judged or pressured. The most important thing for me is that I am learning every week from all the experienced people in my group, and this is something very valuable to me!
I feel my GR group is like a second family to me, always here to support and help everyone in our group to succeed. It is so far the best investment I did as an entrepreneur, and I wouldn't miss a meeting because I love to attend my weekly meetings!

I recently joined GR after having been referred by a friend. Since my arrival, I am flabbergasted as to the networking that is taking place!
Not just around me, but in my own business!
I made connections with business people who were genuinely interested in what I do and wanted to meet with me!
They have set appointments already and I’m sure we will exchange referrals there as well.
Genuineness by definition is: possessing the claimed or attributed character, quality, or origin; not counterfeit; authentic; real.
Thank you, GR, for making this business world a better place with REAL people! I can’t recommend GR enough to all of you.

I love the GR groups. I have met some great people and have learned so much to help grow my business. Thanks Margaret-Ann for inviting me.

I have been a GR member since last August/2017 and already have procured many great business friendships and relationships. There is a strong sense of community within GR and this permeates from the top down, ongoing education, regular regional functions, community charity events are all apart of a well rounded and balanced organization.
I have found GR to be a valuable investment on both a business and personal level, remembering at the end of the day it's all about the relationships we forge.

Im sold. As I say when I talk with people, I got a contract the first meeting I attended, why wouldn't I explore all that GR has to offer!
